Long-established music bar with live bands, a record shop and vegan-friendly dining, plus fizzy pop brewed in-house.
Music is strong at Mono, evidenced as soon as you enter, with stage on the right and Monorail record shop on the left. The connection to the Glasgow music scene makes this place something of a Glasgow institution and, along with places such as Saramago and Stereo, it helps to make the city a very vegan-friendly place. On the animal-free menu you will find fava dip, to-fish'n'chips, and seitan (or 'wheat meat') burger with hand-cut chips. For dessert, the chocolate fudge banana split ice-cream sundae is surprisingly good and they are rightly proud of their home-brewed ginger beer, and raspberry and rose lemonade – made on the premise in large, shiny brewing vats. There’s lots of space for the regular gigs, DJs and art events, which also makes it popular with families, particularly when the baby disco is on.
Don't mistake the slender couple of shelves in the back room of vegan venue Mono for a lightweight enterprise. Owner and muso Stephen Pastel has been setting Glasgow's hipster pulse from here for years.

Ethereal vocals combine with 1970s kraut rock-inspired synths to charming and self-consciously throw-away effect. A huge Nick Drake fan, she sometimes incorporates a cover of Which Will from 1972's seminal album Pink Moon into her…

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult 'Fading Lines is a sustained exercise in restraint, De Graaf's airy voice anchored by backing from assorted US indie luminaries, who provide just enough muscle without overwhelming her.' The Guardian 'Ripe with subtle nuance, Fading Lines is an exquisite debut. Seemingly…
