I was talking with somebody the other day about how many pubs there are in Glasgow.I know at one time there used to be close to 850.A pub on almost every corner you might say,always with a chip shop and a bookies right next door.I believe there are only about 600 left now,what with re-development and other causes of closure.How many of you have favourite pubs you remember that are no longer there,or that have changed out of all recognition.A few that spring to mind for me are, Bar 82,The Lorne Bar, Jack o`Diamonds,Granny Blacks,The Mecca,The Monaco,Speakers Corner,Saints and Sinners,and The Kendal

Hi Riddrieperson

One of my favourities was McNees on Pollokshaws Road, just off Victoria Road. Used to get some great singers in there on a Saturday afternoon after the Plaza punters came out.

Queen's Park Cafe on Victoria Road.

The Pandora on Victoria Road, now called something else?

The International on Aikenhead Road.

Also the Square Peg in St. Enoch Square, it's now called Times Square and has changed dramatically since the days I used to frequent it.

I think the Lorne Bar is now called Big Tams? One of the Glesga folks will put us right there.

Sloanes in Argyle Arcade, Argyle Street, which hasn't changed a bit.

Hoops in Pollokshaws Road near Craigie Street, now called something else.

Obviously, not all during the one night wink.gif

Good topic Riddrieperson, got my wee brain tickin' oe'er. I'm sure I'll be back with some more.

Cheers - Teeny

McNees is still there,but called something else,I think.

The Lorne Bar is called Fat Boab`s Alehouse

I think the Queens Park Cafe is still there.It was Mark McManus` local.(He played Taggart)

the International is still the same.

Pandora and Sloans I don`t know about.I will certainly enjoy doing research on this subject.

Chambers at George Suare was called Queens for a while and then it reverted to Chambers but is now The Edge.For some reason the D in the title is reversed.I believe it is named after a member of the rock band U2.

Berlins bar at George Square became Sadie Frosts(a lesbian/gay bar :-) ,now it is the Europa.

the Hogs Head just along from the Europa is now called the Pheonix and is Glasgow`s first official non -smoking bar.i will do more research on Saturdayafternoon when i go out drinking with my brothers rolleyes.gif

As far as I am aware the" International " (Aitkenhead Rd) and "The Penny Farthing" in Cathcart Rd(Govanhill) are closed due to owners going into liquidation.

McNee's was burnt down(Eglinton Toll) a few years ago. smile.gif

Interesting topic - I used to work part-time in pubs to supplement meagre apprentice wage that started off at 2 : 18 : 4d / week (1958) and was just wondering recently how many still survived.

'Divertie' in Paisley's New Street, still there and now the 'Imperial Bar'. Real dump - sorry.

'Wellington Tavern', Argyll Street, Glasgow, still there but has been closed for many years.

The 'Moy Bar', Cumberland St./Florence St., Gorbals, Glasgow. Long gone with redevelopment.

The 'Auld Hoose', near Castle Street and Royal Infirmary Hospital, Glasgow. Long gone.

'Kelvin Bar', off Maryhill Road, Glasgow. (North Woodside Road, I think?) Long gone.

The 'Walk Inn', North Street, at the corner with St. Vincent St. Long gone (for the Motorway).

The Apprentice!

Crikey I recal Springburn itself was a mass of pubs on every 2nd or 3rd doorstep all the way doon tae the toon incredible how many have gaun away nooadays yer luck tae huv but a few still gaun in Springburn.Bauldy baynes frae springburn rds gaun as is maist of the pubs of springburn think theres just Thomsons doon under the auld dentists facing the shopping centre still there these days.shame realy there was always plenty places tae pop intae but then the population doesn't warrent nor merritt the necessity for so many pubs nooadays.

What about the Griffin in Garscube Road ? it was really nothing but a wine shop and a den of iniquity ,but people loved it in the locality .
At least the boozers in Garscube Road loved it .
