Centrally located on Blackfriars Street within Glasgow’s Merchant City, the Strathduie Bar has a rich history dating back to 1893, and over recent years has benefitted from locals, tourists and the area’s busy nightlife scene.

Fraser comments, “We’re thrilled to welcome everyone back to Strathduie Bar. Our team have worked tirelessly to create a space that honours the history of the venue, while also embracing the excitement of right now.” 
“Whether you're joining us for a lunch time pint, a casual evening with friends or celebrating a special occasion, we're committed to providing an unforgettable experience for each and every guest." 

Simon Watson, Business Agent at Christie & Co who handled the sale, comments, “On behalf of our client, I am delighted to have acquired experienced hospitality operators to revitalise this fantastic pub.  Fraser and his team bring a wealth of experience and I wish them all the success with their new venture.
