THE team behind the renowned Six By Nico restaurants have announced an opening date for their new, charitable eatery in Glasgow. 

All profits from Beat 6, which will make its home on Whitehill Street in Dennistoun, will go directly towards the Beatson Cancer Charity. 

The 34-seater restaurant will offer a regularly rotating tasting menu that will combine some of the most popular dishes created by the Six By Nico team since they first opened in Glasgow in 2017.

We hope that the proceeds from Beat 6 will benefit the charity and the staff to whom we owe so much, as well as provide our team with the opportunity to be a part of such an important cancer journey.

"We genuinely hope that this is the first of many Beat 6 restaurants that we will be able to open for them, and we will always be grateful for everything they do to help change the lives of those affected by cancer every day".
