Maclay Inns Open Two More

TheHopeexternal 1

It’s been a busy month for Maclay Inns who have relaunched not just one bar, but two. First the West Port Hotel in Linlithgow relaunched after a £450K refurbishment, then the former Grahamston Bar in Glasgow was relaunched with a new name, The Hope, and a new look.
The West Port transformation included major structural changes to the building and it was stripped back to basics. The bar was built in a different position and the wall that previously separated the bar from the West Port cottage was knocked down to create a cosy dedicated restaurant area. Now the hotel offers a modern country inn feel featuring a relaxing colour palette of soothing shades of grey and green, fused with bright pops of colours in soft furnishings and accessories to brighten up the space.
The Hope also opened after a £500K refurbishment. This is Maclay’s first city centre bar and has a modern, contemporary look, with stylish mirrored tiling adding to the beauty of the original bar. Glasgow tenement style floor tiles have been used as a feature in front of the bar highlighting a large zinc drinking table incorporating the bar’s original marble pillars. Interesting modern design pieces, such as oversized hanging felt lampshades and quirky pieces of Glasgow art, have been added to create focal points in the restaurant, complementing the grand Cistine Chapel inspired frieze on the ceiling and the feature art deco cupula.
