    First visit

    We were early so had a drink at the bar area before our table was ready. Great atmosphere and great fun watching the dancers dancing love music. Food was amazing. There was a few Greek inspired meals....so tasty. Had £55 deal, great value and tasted fantastic, nice wine also. Service was great. The gentleman serving and taking orders was like a wee whirlwind making sure everyone had what they needed. Will definitely be back.

    Avante Garde was fab

    Had an amazing starter prawn saganaki, the sauce was amazing. Kinda spoiled us when having the main courses. Billy who served, and chatted with us, was what you want in a restaurant. Will definitely be back.

Merchant City music bar and restaurant

An inviting space with a cool, contemporary décor, Avant Garde is a lively music bar and restaurant on King Street in the Merchant City. The huge windows are great for people watching but much of the attention focuses on the regular live music, especially the weekend ceilidh and jazz sessions. The kitchen delivers a popular mix of bar classics and Mediterranean favourites with a strong Greek and Italian emphasis.

Freshly prepared British and Mediterranean dishes

All the food at Avant Garde is prepared using fresh, locally sourced ingredients and is cooked to order. In addition to a good value lunch menu, Avant Garde runs a full a la carte. The menu features a wide selection of burgers, pasta and risotto alongside traditional choices such as mac ‘n’ cheese; steak and ale pie and haggis.

The dishes showing more of a Med influence include moussaka, pork or chicken souvlaki and chicken Milanese. From a Belgian chocolate sundae to warm sticky toffee pudding via walnut pie with vanilla pod ice cream, the Avant Garde desserts offer plenty of choice.
