“Unfortunately, as the bar was full and we were extremely busy, we didn’t realize the theft had taken place until 1am and by then they were long gone.

“Some jackets were left in the alley behind the bar.”

General manager Max Conor said there would be a “nice” reward for anyone who helps the team recover their items.

“Great reward for anyone who can give us information leading to the return of stolen property,” he said.

One of the stolen laptops was located in Maryhill while Eva’s Airpods were located up Dumbarton Road.

“We ask anyone reading this to look for a gray 15 inch MacBook Pro for sale, it has an Arabic keyboard so should be easy to spot.

“If anyone sees these items for sale online or elsewhere please contact the bar on 01412219036.”

Police Scotland are investigating the theft.
