Welcome to The 13th Note Cafe, an independent bar, restaurant and venue in Glasgow’s Merchant City. We cater for a vegan diet – all of our food is ethically sourced and free from animal cruelty – and stock a fine selection of vegan beers, lagers and wines.

We are open from midday until midnight, seven days a week. Children are welcome in our cafe, when eating, until 8pm. However, all of our gigs are over 18s only.

2018 was an amazing year for us, with awards for Best Vegetarian Food in Scotland, Dog Friendly Pub, Best Bloody Mary, and many more. We aim to achieve even greater heights in 2019!

We have been among Glasgow’s Top 100 restaurants for several years now. Though rankings go up and down, we are proud to the leading vegetarian restaurant in the Glasgow area.

“Set in what can only be described as a basement, The 13th Note plays host to bands nearly every night, across every genre/scene imaginable. From grindcore to punk, acoustic sets to minimalist noise – its all here and always dirt cheap. And if that wasnt enough, you can stuff your face with veggie food upstairs in the poster laden cafe/bar and drink to the sounds of quite possibly the best jukebox ever!” [review by Ryan Drever, Skinny Student Handbook]
