Revolution Bars Group is to further expand its Cuban-inspired rum-led bar chain Revoluciòn de Cuba with a new site in Glasgow; its third opening in two months.

The new site – located close to the city's Queen Street station – comes after bar openings in Aberdeen and Reading in November. Glasgow will be the brand’s second opening in Scotland, taking the brand's estate to 13. The Revolution Bars Group currently operates 66 bars nationally, including five in Scotland. Glasgow will be the fourth Revoluciòn de Cuba bar to open this year.

Mark McQuater, CEO of Revolution Bars Group, said: 'We launched Aberdeen earlier this month and it has been received really well. We are delighted with our Glasgow site; the city centre has a buzzing bar scene and is situated in a high footfall location. We look forward to showcasing our premium Cuban proposition to this new audience.'

The Revoluciòn de Cuba brand is focused on premium Cuban rums and 'creative, handmade cocktails', with food influences from across Latin American.

Opening on December 16, the 4,300 square foot space will include 100 covers inside and a further 300 square feet of external seating.
