A historic city pub is set to reopen this Spring.

It comes after specialist business property adviser Christie & Co secured a new tenant for the Strathduie Bar in Glasgow.

Centrally located on Blackfriars Street within the Merchant City, the Strathduie Bar has a rich history dating back to 1893.

Over recent years the pub has benefitted from locals, tourists and the Merchant City's busy nightlife scene.
