A long-serving Glasgow pub will be given a facelift.

Sky Blue Scotland Ltd, owner of The Press Bar on Albion Street, has been given planning permission to give the bar a makeover.

The applicants feel that, given Covid restrictions are easing, now is the right time to upgrade the entrance to the pub and attract new customers.

The bar has a long history - it was opened in 1937 as The Express Bar, as the Scottish Daily Express was based next door and it was popular with journalists - and the new exterior would add some historic character.

The current owners have been running it since 2017.
