A long-awaited transformation on Byres Road is complete.
Six by Nico has opened at the former Fopp premises.
And these photos show how the space has been reimagined and the fit-out finished.
The new interior has been shown off and the first meals have been served.
Six by Nico Byres Road is chef Nico Simeone’s third location in his home city.
The new Byres Road restaurant follows in the footsteps of his Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh, London Canary Wharf, and Dublin, and features a carefully curated and constantly evolving tasting menu.
Chef Nico Simeone said: "We are very excited to open a third restaurant in Glasgow.
“Byres Road is an ideal location for us in Glasgow's vibrant West End, known for its top attractions, quirky lanes, and incredible food scene.
“Expansion in the city where our concept began is an important step in our plan to expand this year.

“In Glasgow, we have quickly built an enthusiastic base of repeat customers as well as an extremely loyal customer base.
“We are very excited to introduce to both returning and new customers a new restaurant design.”
Sixco Group, the owners of Six by Nico Byres Road, commissioned Glasgow-based contractors One Call to re-imagine the new restaurant space.
“The Byres Road unit has signature Six by Nico style features such as the open theatre kitchen, raw metal display units, antique brass bar gantries, Venetian plastered walls, and teal wall panelling, as well as a dispense bar, new customer toilets, and prep kitchen.”
Chris Gallagher of Burns Design said: "Burns Design were tasked with taking the existing ground floor of the once iconic Fopp Records building on Byres Road and converting it into the latest Six by Nico, the first in Glasgow since 2017.
“Working with One Call, we added some new design elements to the interior's such as brass toned fabrics and abstract artwork unique to the Six by Nico brand."
