Glasgow Gone-by: Glaswegians remember 14 long-lost Glasgow pubs which are gone but not forgotten

It feels like a part of Glasgow went missing when these pubs shut their doors for the final time

Glasgow has been the heart of culture, clubbing, pubbing, and general good times in Scotland for generations - but in those generations, we’ve lost a good number of Glaswegian institutions.

These pubs and late-night clubs were the meeting points for football fans before the next big game, the staging post for after-work pints for both heavy industry and office workers, and gossip spots for students - they were many things to many people over the decades they were open. Many of these pubs would define an era of Glasgow - like the Burns Howff in the 70’s and 80’s and it’s commitment to live local music.

We wanted to look back at the best of these lost spots in Glasgow - so take a gander below at these lost Glasgow places that are gone, but certainly not forgotten.
