THE first images of a new “elevated” chippie from the minds behind Six by Nico have been released.

The dual-concept Sole Club is set to open next week in Finnieston, Glasgow, which was also once home to the first Six by Nico restaurant.

The National:

What looks on the surface to be a traditional chippie takeaway conceals behind a fridge door an intimate, 20-seat speakeasy-style fish restaurant.

The images show the hidden door as well as giving a sneak peek at the menu board, which is set to include dishes such as monkfish scampi, sole goujons, and specials such as lobster rolls and soft shell crab buns.

It will serve fewer than 300 people per week, which is what most Six by Nico restaurants serve in a single day.

There will be no walk-ins and bookings will only be released on a month-by-month basis.

Morgan Pope, brand manager at Six Company, said: “This has been an incredibly exciting concept to bring to life.

The National:

“Both the traditional chippie which pays homage to a Scottish favourite, and Sole Club’s concept that champions intimacy and exclusivity.

“The menus at Sole Club will rotate daily, with chefs responding to the fresh catches that come in that morning. Our strong relationships between kitchen and supplier is what has helped make this concept possible: a new menu each day, and a new experience each time you visit.

“It was important that the design of the restaurant not only embodied these concepts, but married them together. It all comes together as part of the Sole Club journey: from the sultry lighting, to the subtle nods to fish monger markets, to the iconic pink fridge that doubles as a door to Sole Club.”

Six Company worked with Studio Two, an award-winning interior designer from Harrogate, to bring the dual-concept to life.

Lauren Milner from Studio Two Interiors said: “We wanted to create a concept that paid homage to the sense of history and significance the ‘chippie’ means to Nico and his personal journey.

The National:

“The takeout area and the bones of the space are inspired by the authentic rougher finishes, textured materials and gritty concrete found in the docking yards with the retro light fittings and metal finishes creating a nod to the fish monger markets.

“The speakeasy element of the space forms a seductive and secret overlay, the element of accessible exclusivity forms interior choices through subtle lighting, exhibition-like product displays and reflective ceiling elements.

“Playing with conceptual materials such as glass blocks representative of ice, tarnished steel and insertion of the ‘fridge doors’, the Sole Club interior marries both the element of tradition and the excitement of a secret.”

Sole Club will open its doors Wednesday, February 28, and will be open Wednesday – Sunday.
