Formerly Samuel Dows.
A short term pop up before a full revamp to the bar.
The main question is what will happen to the Skol International and Double Diamond mirrors behind the bar :)

Worth seeing at the very least for the jiggly seemingly unfocussed bluelines and the art that comes from them on the Frank Quitely prints.

Denholms was recently closed for a few weeks as it underwent what the posted sign said was "a much needed facelift"
As with Wintergills in the previous post i was interested to see what these changes actually are. The bar reopened last Saturday night. This has turned out to be what the sign said; "a facelift", bar is looking good, now serving food and an updated beer range. Also cleared the signs blocking the great front window allowing the light to show it clearly. The people on the frieze have names now.Chairs and tables changed. Downstairs was "refreshed" as well and it has all been a worthwhile exercise. With the recent closure of the nearby Quarter Gill it is good to see investment in the bars in this area.
( Hey Denholms has burgers and craft beer now !! wonder when the blaggers will arrive for a review )

Tis the season for makeovers and facelifts in the Glasgow pub scene. The Halt is now West On the Corner, Denholms is currently shut for what is called a "much needed makeover". ( I hope the frieze remains ) . Other bars, like The Quarter Gill, have closed. Bars are planned to be changed into hostels ( McNeills ) So it is with some worry that you read of another "facelift"

I am not quite sure what has changed :) . Apart from me knowing how to take better phone pictures.

Wintersgills Bar, Glasgow

This bar has one of the great subtle bar features ( like Vale/Avant Garde ) a sloped bar front. Your feet have more room while the top is still close to you.
