Costumes, Comics and Heroes take over The Butchershop for MCM Comic Con Annual Show at The SECC
Join our superhero steak squad and get in character for the MCM Comic Con (or simply ‘Flash’ your ticket) to get your very own superhero steak dinner this Sunday!
1.2kg TOMAHAWK Steak to share + 2 sides + 2 sauces + bottle of house wine = £70 per ‘Dynamic Duo’.
No superhero story would be complete without a good plot at heart and every guest that dines with us at The Butchershop Bar and Grill will be helping to fundraise for the STV Appeal. A discretionary £1 per table will be added to guests’ bills from today until October 16th with owners James and Louise Rusk matching the total raised to help fight child poverty in Scotland.

Superman, Ironman and Spider-Man – just some of the superheroes you’ll find hiding out at The Butchershop this weekend, where they’ll be using their superpowers to serve supersize Scotch steaks to the expected 30,000 attendees of the sold out MCM Comic Con at the SECC this weekend!
In the spirit of the UK’s largest pop culture and comic memorabilia festival, we’re offering you your own superhero steak dinner – a humongous Flinstone-esqe bone in rib steak aptly known as the Tomahawk with four sides and a bottle of house wine for £70 per couple* to those who join our superhero steak squad and cosplay as a comic character or their favourite TV hero (this Sunday 27th September or show your MCM Comic Con ticket)
Or what about a specially created supercharged elixir – The Flash: a vibrant red concoction that will keep any villain at bay and quench the thirst of your heroes! Made with equal parts Tequila, Chambord, a helping of raspberry purée, mint leaves and zesty lime.
Speaking about the Steak Superhero Squad owner James Rusk of The Butchershop Bar & Grill and Grade A Listed dining venue Hutchesons Bar & Brasserie, says:
“Our staff are our superheroes every day and we wanted to celebrate and have a bit of fun during the September weekend for the masses of people attending Comic Con. Our Tomahawk steak looks as if it’s straight out a comic book so it’s a great fit!
James who has just been announced as Visit Scotland’s Hospitality Hero for Glasgow continues:
“We hope that our guests will join in the cosplay comic spirit and help us fundraise for a great cause at the same time.”
MCM Comic Con is the UK’s largest and most popular Comic Con pop culture event and Memorabilia Collectors show, bringing together the newest game releases, merchandise buying and an opportunity to meet leading actors, directors and animators of favourite shows and comics.
This the third annual Comic Con and this years special guests include Robert Llewellyn who plays Kryten in Red Dwarf, (which starts filming two new series in November), Robert Picardo of Star Trek: Voyager, Karl Yune who played villian Maseo Yamashiro in Arrow, Maile Flanagan, who voices the title role in animated series Naruto, Femi Taylor, who was Jabba The Hutt’s slave dancer in Return of the Jedi and the director and animator of animated series The Rolling Girls, Kotomi Deai and Hiroshi Shimizu.
The Tomahawk steak ranges in size from 1.2g to 2kg and is part of their cuts on the bone colossal steak range, this cut is hung on the bone by their fourth-generation master butcher who hangs the grass-fed Scottish beef for 45 days, allowing each cut the correct amount of time to reach the optimum buttery melt-in-your-mouth flavour level.
What makes these cuts extraordinary is the specialised dry-aging process of hanging cuts on the bone; this process allows for an enhanced ageing period as the bone retains more moisture, delivering that unadulterated taste perfection.
Located at 1055 Sauchiehall Street reservations can be made in advance by calling their reservations team on 0141 339 2999 or booking online.
