Our story

Our History

Purchased by the Bowman family in 2001, our first venue was Bar Bliss, situated in Kirkintilloch. In 2010, we began launching pubs and bars, before moving on to restaurants such as Mezcal and The Scallion.

Our Present

We currently own and operate twelve of Scotland’s most loved bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. We employ over 180 people and are headquartered in Glasgow. The Merchant Steakhouse, the Hielan Jessie, Maples Giffnock, and The Montford are some of the most recent venues within our portfolio.

Our Future

Fundamentally, we believe that hospitality is about delivering unforgettable experiences. As we begin branching out into Edinburgh, we remain driven by our attention to detail, and passion for creating cherished memories for you and your loved ones.


We are proud to be Bow.
