Glasgow's "biggest terrace" is set to open just in time for the Euros.

A new restaurant and bar which only opened last weekend is planning to further expand by installing an outdoor seating area.

Cafe Ibiza, which took over the former building of The Botany on Maryhill Road, was created as the ultimate place to go on a warm summer day.

Jack Quirk, the owner, said: "I worked in Ibiza for a few years and I'm originally from London. Those two places are very focused on daytime events. People go in and out when it’s a nice day, you get all the drinks deals, live entertainment, DJs.

“It’s more fun to do it throughout the day, it calms down at night and people go other places. So, that's massive in London, boozy brunches and things.

“But here, there wasn't really anywhere in Glasgow that people could do daytime events. So I wanted to create something."

The venue has an indoor section but the main attraction is already the terrace with nine tables and four party domes.

According to the 34-year-old, this is perfect for birthday parties and other events and is already popular with punters.

He added: "They fit eight people each and they're fantastic.

"We've also got a huge drinking terrace opening at the back on July 14, just in time for Euro 2024. It's going to be the biggest terrace for drinking in the whole of Glasgow.

“We’re going to have palm trees, fire pits, all of that.

"Also, it's all outdoor sofas and really nice, comfy seating.

"It'll feel like you're in Dubai or Ibiza. It really will."

Along with the drinks, the new spot will offer food as well, still in line with the tropical theme.

Jack said: "We do a really nice, healthy, fresh brunch menu from 10am to 2pm, every day. We have eggs Benedict, pancakes, bowls and things like that. It’s very Ibiza vibe.

"And then, from 3pm each day, we do a small plates menu. It's a mix of all different things, for example, we've got shredded beef sliders, garlic and chilli prawns and pepper fries.

“It’s picky food. People can have a couple of glasses of wine and share some plates.

“They are already really popular, people are ordering loads of them."

Building on the early success of the bar, the entrepreneur also has longer-term goals.

The Tradeston resident said: "Once we've done that terrace, the next step is we're doing a big roof terrace.

“We’re going to be putting in a planning application for that soon, so the whole top of the building will be another terrace.

"We've got some fantastic ideas lined up for it.

"This will be a huge help and seat around another 100 people. It will have beautiful glass straight around it."

Customers are now welcome to enjoy some sunshine or watch Scotland at the group stage of the anticipated football tournament. 

He said: “It's definitely very lively at the weekends. And then more chill during the week.

"There is lots of house music and last weekend, there were loads of girls up, dancing. It's really good fun.

"We also had a range of different ages, a lot of older people and students. So, it's probably the first venue I've seen in Glasgow where everybody integrates and mixes together, which is really nice.

"That's the vibe I wanted."
