Glasgow’s food scene continues to go from strength to strength and we couldn’t be more delighted to support our city’s bars and pubs after so many difficult months.
But have you ever considered going beyond sharing a pint with your friends and running the bar yourself?
It’s undoubtedly been a tough time for bars in Glasgow, but for those of us with the pennies – and the dedication – owning your own bar sounds like a dream job.
Imagine spending your day ‘testing’ beer, munching on the best crisps and yelling ‘Get out of my pub’ when things get a little rowdy on a Friday night.
These Glasgow spots are all on the hunt for new publicans, according to findmypub.com, and if you’re up for the challenge, you could soon be pulling pints and serving pub grub at your own bar.
Stretching throughout the city, from Merchant City to the south, there are great opportunities here. All you need is courage, determination and a little extra cash.
The Woods, Mcphabbs and many others are all looking for someone to enter into a tenancy agreement, which means you will pay the rent, bills and staff costs yourself.
It’ll be a lot of administration and elbow grease – but if you’re up for the challenge, you could turn your fancy work into reality.
