TGI Friday's opens new site at Silverburn shopping complex

American restaurant group TGI Friday's has opened its new site at the Silverburn shopping centre in Glasgow.

The 6,821sq ft venue was first announced in February this year, as part of the wider development of the shopping centre.

The décor, which was inspired by Glasgow-born early 20th century Art Nouveau artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh, features bold ceiling tiles, tall ceilings, exposed metal, red leather bar stools and leather-covered seating booths.

It is not the first TGI Friday's to have focused on design in recent months; in February, the group announced that it would be taking over the former Post Office building in Brighton, a Grade-II listed building that needed considerable restoration and renovation.

The group also operates three other Glasgow branches, including central Glasgow, Glasgow Braehead, and Glasgow Fort, the latter of which opened in August 2013.

With more than 60 sites in the UK, TGI Friday's serves a classic menu of American-inspired burgers, ribs, sides and desserts, plus cocktails and beers.

This new opening is the latest in a series of expansions for the brand, which has said it expects to open around 120 new sites in the UK by 2020. The group's most recent opening announcement UK-wide was the new 266-cover site in Milton Keynes' MK1 Leisure Park, which was planned for a November opening.

Other restaurants and brands within the 100,000 sq ft Glasgow shopping centre and leisure complex include a Zizzi, Pizza Express, the Handmade Burger Co., Carluccio's, Giraffe, Wagamama and Yo! Sushi.

More brands are set to open in the complex across the coming months, including pan-Asian restaurant Zizzi's and American burger group Five Guys. There is also a 14-screen cinema.
