Our fresh, home cooked menu is free of all animal produce and is therefore suitable for vegetarians, vegans and any discerning palate. If you have any specific dietary requirements, please advise your server and they will you help you in any way they can.

We have a large range of beers, wines and soft drinks, including many organic options. Craft beer heroes Williams Brothers help us to brew our own ginger beer and various lemonades using our in-house microbrewery. Our coffee is an ethical blend designed and roasted for us in Glasgow by Dear Green.



Mono opened in 2002, furnishing Glasgow with a unique and versatile space in which to eat, drink and discover new music. Over our first decade, we developed a reputation for good beer, good vegan food, good gigs and good times. We are proud of our achievements but we aim to make our second decade even better.


Our close relationship with the other businesses with whom we share a roof, Monorail Music and Good Press, lends a sense of community: the former provide the soundtrack to our days, while the latter design many of our posters, and both help us to curate our varied programme of events.

Mono has hosted not only some of the most exciting bands around, both local and international, but also exhibitions, book readings, art performances and workshops. Hopefully, something will catch your eye on our Events page & we’ll see you soon!

Mono is a vegan café bar situated in Glasgow’s Merchant City. Our aim is to provide a welcoming environment, quality food & drink and an exciting range of live entertainment, all couched in an ethical & community based context. If you have any general queries, please contact us at:
