The Howgait is Glasgow’s newest answer to the increasing student population’s demands for a great pub.

Reopening with a new name on Friday, 19th August, following a five-figure refurbishment by owners Stonegate Pub Company, the special launch promises guests fizz and canapés with a live band from 9pm.

With a new campus building for Glasgow City College opening in September, and halls of residence for the University of Strathclyde nearby, the fresh look with relaxed seating and intimate booth seating for groups is the perfect refurbishment for the area; the investment has also created three new job roles.

Howgait may historically refer to times when the area was famous for public hangings but will create its own history by offering a great new addition to the area’s student social scene.

General manager Matthew Tyre, said: “Our regulars will obviously hugely benefit too, they have very much been looking forward to getting back into the bar they love so much.

“We’re adding more reasons to get out and visit the pub from quizzes to DJs to all day breakfast on Sundays,” added Matthew.

The pub has joined the craft beer craze, adding Brewdog Punk IPA ABV 5.6% to their rotating selection of cask ales which will include Innis andamp; Gunn Toasted Oak IPA.

Two meals are £8.99 and Sundays will offer breakfast until 5pm. Other key events across the week include a Monday night pool competition, Wednesday night craft beer tasting and football, and an open mic night on Friday.

The Howgait, 100 St James’ Road, Townhead, Glasgow, G4 0PS

11.45am to 11pm, Monday to Wednesday andamp; Sunday, 11.54am to 12am Thursday to Saturday
