Six Company, the Glasgow-based company behind the Six by Nico restaurant chain, has announced plans including the launch of three new venues across the city.
Chief executive and founder Nico Simeone confirmed a three million pound investment into the city's restaurant scene with a new flagship restaurant in the Merchant City.
In addition, there will be Sole Club in Finnieston, which will pay homage to the original idea that launched the Six by Nico journey - 'The Chippie' - as well as Somewhere by Nico - an innovative cocktail bar that aims to combine multisensory, mixology and storytelling.
After six years of operations in the city and the opening of fifteen sites throughout the UK and Ireland in the same time frame, the brand is moving into a new phase. Six by Nico Merchant City will open on January 15th, 2024 at 64 Albion St, Glasgow.
The existing Glasgow Finnieston Six by Nico location will close on January 14th while Sole Club will open. One side will host a unique chippie takeaway. The other side of Sole Club's concept is tucked away, a one-of-a-kind 22-seat speakeasy-style fish restaurant that takes pride in using the best Scottish ingredients. The venue will thrive on spontaneity and innovation, crafting daily menus based on the best ingredients available each day, ensuring a fresh and exciting dining experience. It will open its doors at 1132 Argyle St, Finnieston in February 2024.
The final investment for the first quarter of 2024 in Glasgow for Six Company will bring a new cocktail-tasting experience to Glasgow's West End.
Somewhere by Nico will create a six-stage cocktail experience every six weeks, inspired by a ‘themed world’ that will become Somewhere during that time. You will be transported to a dream world with a carefully curated two-hour experience from £60pp. Somewhere by Nico will offer what is believed to be Scotland's first-ever cocktail-tasting experience with paired dishes and will open in February 2024 at 358 Byres Rd, Glasgow.
Six Company Chief Executive and founder Nico Simeone said:
“Our team is driven daily by the challenge to constantly create and reinvent. We are dedicated to being different, never resting on our laurels, and continuously striving to create the best customer experiences. Marking our six-year journey with such a significant evolution of experiences in our home town and reaffirming our commitments to the city seems like the best way to celebrate the next stage in our company vision.“
Since launching their first restaurant in 2017 in their hometown of Glasgow, Six by Nico has served over 350,000 customers across the city's locations in Finnieston, Byres Road, and Glasgow Southside and a staggering 2 million dishes.
The Six by Nico brand has created 49 tasting menus since the conceptual brand's launch in Glasgow and raised over £700,000 in two years for the group's charity partner Beatson Cancer Charity.
Since the partnership's inception less than two years ago, the restaurant group and their customers have raised funds across their fifteen Six by Nico locations in England, Scotland, and Ireland as well as 100% of the proceeds from the Beat 6 restaurant in Glasgow Bearsden going directly to Beatson Cancer Charity.
