Success for Howlin Wolf


Mark Lappin and Paul Bright have opened a new bar on the site of the former Monkey Bar. It is now well and truly up and running and is shaping up to be one of the most popular bars on Bath Street.
The blues-themed bar has gone the route of upcycling. Mark explains, “We go from having affluent touches like the chesterfields to using recycled scaffolding and brick walls. The venue also has a massive ‘debating table’. Says Mark, “We can sit 20 – 30 folk around it. I’ve spent a lot of time in German bars and most of them have one. It’s a bar away from the bar.”
The bar boasts an open kitchen and food is served until the early hours, while the room at the rear of Howlin’ Wolf has a real feel of a speakeasy. It’s more opulent with black and silver walls and black leather chesterfield booths. There is also an entrance here which takes you to Sauchiehall Street Lane. The more you look around Howlin Wolf the more you notice and the blues music is a treat. Says Mark, “Business is certainly building. We are full to capacity at the weekends and the crowds have been great.” Howlin Wolf is at 100 Bath Street.
