The team behind the Six by Nico group of restaurants is opening a new venue that will donate its profits to charity.

Called Beat 6, the restaurant, to be located on Whitehill Street in the Dennistoun are of Glasgow, will donate its profits towards the Beatson Cancer Charity, which supports the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre

Restaurateur Nico Simeone and his wife Valentina have created the project to help the Beatson Cancer Charity help others in the same way it helped them. Valentina has benefitted from the treatment the Beatson provides having been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in May of 2015, at the age of 25. 

The restaurant is scheduled to open in late summer and will serve a tasting menu that will change on a regular basis, referencing some of the most popular dishes created by the Six by Nico team since Nico Simeone opened his first restaurant in Glasgow in 2017.

"For our family and for many like us, The Beatson holds a special place in our hearts,” he says.

“Being able to do this on the 6th anniversary of my wife Valentina's diagnosis is a dream come true for our family. Helping the charity and the workers to whom we owe so much, as well as being a part of such an important cancer battle, means so much to us.

“I honestly can't put into words how much I owe them. The Beatson is the reason I have my wife and three children with me today. We sincerely hope that this is the first of many Beat 6 restaurants that we will be able to open for them, and we are eternally grateful for all they have done and continue to do."
