Makeover for MacSorleys
Historic Glasgow pub MacSorleys on Jamaica Street is getting a new lease of life with a £250k investment by Punch and new publican Mickey Mullan.
It is now closed for refurbishment and will reopen late February. The interior is being refreshed with many original features preserved.
A new stage and sound system will allow MacSorleys put on live music seven nights a week.
Mullan has previously managed pubs for Mitchells & Butlers and Stonegate Pub Company. He told DRAM, “MacSorleys has taken a bit of a battering over the years and needs some attention. As much as we need to
He told DRAM, “MacSorleys has taken a bit of a battering over the years and needs some attention. As much as we need to modernise we don’t want to lose any of the old features, and the horseshoe bar is staying.

He added, “There’s been a lot of interest in what we’re doing so we’re looking forward to reopening.”
