Babbity Bowster

A well-known bar and restaurant located at No. 16-18 Blackfriars Street in Glasgow's Merchant City, Babbity Bowster lies in a building constructed around 1794 to a plan by Robert and James Adam (1728-92 and 1732-94). The last remnant of an entire street planned by the Adam brothers, this five-bay Georgian house had been reduced to a shell, but was completely restored by the Edinburgh-based architect Nicholas Groves-Raines in 1984-86.
