New airport bar is top-flight

PACIFIC have just handed over an impressive new bar that can accommodate up to 260 customers at Glasgow International Airport.

Occupying the airside site that once housed the former Sanderling bar, the stylish new Bird & Signet features high-end fixtures and fittings in a light, airy location next door to Starbucks.

The bar – which will serve snacks and meals as well as travellers’ favourite drinks – also showcases Glasgow’s cultural importance via artworks inspired by some of the city’s most famous creative figures.

And its colour scheme will be familiar to those who have lived or grown up in the west of Scotland – as it features green and orange accents inspired by the city’s bus and subway systems.

Craig Norton, retail account manager for Glasgow Airport, said: “The transformation from the Sanderling to the Bird & Signet is incredible and I’m confident visitors will love the new layout and surroundings.”

The £550,000 project took 15 weeks to complete and involved new floor coverings, mechanical and electrical  installations, decoration, doors, partitions and new kitchen.

Pacific’s manufactured joinery team supplied and fitted the main bar, waiter stations, banquette seating and high tables.

The repeat clients on the project are global travel food experts SSP and the consulting team included Ryan & Lamb and Paul D Lawrence.

The Bird & Signet opened to customers on Monday, October 10, 2022, and its name is inspired by the legends associated with Glasgow’s coat of arms that features the bird the never flew, the tree that never grew, the fish with a ring in its mouth that never swam and the bell that never rang.

Up to 100 jobs are expected to be created with the opening of the bar that will serve customers from early in the morning to late at night, seven days a week.
