Kilmurry To Celebrate First Birthday With Disco Brunch Collaboration & Cocktail Club
Southside neighbourhood bistro and bar Kilmurry Co is teaming up with Queen’s Park Disco Sessions: One Night in the Park and launching their Kilmurry Cocktail Club to celebrate one year in business.
Bringing a programme of fun into the summer, the birthday celebrations will begin this weekend with their first ever disco brunch this Sunday in Kilmurry. Brunch fans will be treated to P-A-R-T-Y beats by Scotland’s longest running club night, Melting Pot who will be DJing from 12 until 4pm.
Alongside glitter and stacks of fluffy buttermilk pancake and organically farmed egg classics, guests will also enjoy the launch of the Kilmurry Cocktail Club – with £5 delicious drinks available all day.
The disco brunch collaboration is free and the perfect warm up before heading around the corner to the leafy Queen’s Park Bandstand for the Disco Sessions: One Day In The Park event that’s also taking place over the bank holiday weekend. Sold out for Saturday, there only a limited number of tickets available left for Sunday.
Speaking about the new partnership, Jose Carbajosa, owner of Kilmurry & Co said:
“Who doesn’t love disco with a side of brunch? When we heard that Queen’s Park Disco Sessions were taking over the Southside we wanted to do something special for our guests in Kilmurry.
“It’s also our first anniversary since we opened and a double excuse to PARTY! We’ve made the event is free, so come on down and help us celebrate our birthday with our first ever disco brunch! It’ll be busy so be make sure you come down early.”
To mark the collaboration, the bar team have created some disco specials to help kick off their birthday celebrations. Margarita fans will love ‘Let’s Get Figgy With It’ – a fresh and sour cocktail with figs, the bold smooth flavour of añejo tequila, a splash of lime and Grand Marnier.
While the Pink Lux, rose in colour is a fruity mouthful shaken with gin, Cointreau, cranberry and pink grapefruit. Both drinks are new to the menu and available as part of The Kilmurry Cocktail Club, with all cocktails in Kilmurry priced at £5, all day Sunday to Thursday.
Opened in May, Kilmurry and Co is a neighbourhood bar and restaurant in Shawlands that specialises in serving brunch classics by day and Scottish small plates with international flavours and cocktails by night.
Queen’s Park Disco Brunch is free and takes place in Kilmurry & Co on Sunday 5th May from 12 pm until 4pm.
Disco Sessions is the first in a summer series of parties that Glasgow party starters Melting Pot have planned in the leafy setting off the Queen’s Park Arena (bandstand). Kicking off the festivities with the sold-out event this Saturday, the last remaining tickets for the Sunday instalment of Disco Sessions are available here: http://bit.ly/2IRXnze
The Kilmurry Cocktail Club offers all cocktails for £5 Sunday to Thursday.
