Wetherspoons has canceled plans to open a new pub in Glasgow to replace a previously popular empty nightclub.
Pub giants are looking to open a new bar on the site of the former Tusk nightclub on Moss Side Road.
The company even changed the base license. The venue is expected to replace the Sir John Stirling Maxwell pub that closed earlier this year.
The franchise has confirmed that the site is currently for sale and that they will not develop any further following a “commercial” decision.
Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon said: “Wetherspoon can confirm that it will put its location at Moss Side Road, Glasgow, on the market for sale.
“The company will not develop the website into a Wetherspoon pub.
“This is a commercial decision.”
We reported in March that Shawlands pub closures have left pub goers without alternative Spoons in the south part of the city.
The nearest pub now operated by the bar chain is An Ruadh-Ghleann, located three miles away in Rutherglen.
Bosses confirmed at the time that all staff at Sir John Stirling Maxwell would not be redundant.
