New Italian craft beer bar and restaurant Doppio Malto takes over former Jamie's Italian in Glasgow

Described as Italy’s leading brewhouse concept, Doppio Malto has opened in the former Jamies Italian restaurant on George Square. The unit extends to almost 9,000 sq ft over ground and basement floors. 

Doppio Malto launched in 2016 and now operates 26 venues throughout Italy and France. Following a period of rapid growth, Doppio Malto’s goal is to open 100 brewhouses throughout the UK.  After Glasgow, the brand has its sights set on further openings before the end of the year.

Commenting on Doppio Malto's maiden UK opening, CEO and founder, Giovanni Porcu, said: "Today is a momentous day for Doppio Malto.  We are so proud to have opened our doors here in the UK - more specifically in George Square, the iconic centrepiece of Glasgow.  ‌Italy and Scotland have many links, going back centuries, so it was the natural choice for our debut UK venue and we are so grateful for the warm welcome. 

"At the very heart of Doppio Malto is our motto “un posto felice” - a ‘happy place. Everything we do is designed around feeling good - from the food and beer to the service and physical space, and we are so excited to bring this unique concept to the UK for the very first time." 

Culverwell represented the Landlord.
