BEAT 6, a new restaurant which will give its proceedings to charity has opened today in Glasgow's Dennistoun.

As we have previously reported, the new restaurant is run by the group behind the popular Six By Nico restaurant, located on Argyle Street.

Beat 6 has the capacity to seat 34 people and serves a constantly rotating tasting menu made up of the most popular dishes they've ever created in the Six by Nico kitchens throughout the years. 

These will include Raclette Fondue, Fish supper 2.0 and Deep Fried Mars Bar.

The proceeds will go to Beatson Cancer Charity, an organisation that supported Nico's wife through her cancer treatment. 

Nico Simeone from Simeone Group said: "We, like many others, hold a special place in our hearts for the Beatson.

"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.

"An exciting day for our team who have worked hard over the past four month to prepare for the opening. 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".
