Glasgow’s famous Laurieston Bar sold through Christie & Co

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co is pleased to announce the sale of the iconic Laurieston Bar in Glasgow.


Located in the Bridge Street area of the city, this award-winning wet led pub has been owned by the Clancy family for over 40 years and came to the market to allow the current owners, John and James Clancy, to devote more time to their families.

Tony Spence, Associate Director at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, comments, “I am delighted to have been involved in the sale of this iconic public house in Glasgow.  This was a rare opportunity to purchase a proper ‘boozer’ with high turnover and profits. We were inundated with interest from the outset and were able to set a swift closing date and achieve a great result for our clients.”

The Laurieston Bar has been sold to a private investor who has confirmed that the business will continue to operate as it has done for over 40 years. A member of the Clancy family will remain involved to carry on the long standing traditions that have deservedly made the establishment one of Glasgow's favourites.

Previous owners, John and James comment, “We wish the new owner the very best for the future and are delighted that their plan for The Laurieston Bar is to continue to be 'just a pub.' We would also like to thank Tony Spence for his professionalism throughout the whole sale process, and offering support and advice whenever needed.”
