The Park Bar in Glasgow has been announced as a finalist for the Sunday Mail Pub of the Year prize at the 2014 DRAM Scottish Licensed Trade Awards, which take place at The Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow on Monday July 7th.
The Sunday Mail Pub of the Year seeks to recognise the best pub in the country. The nominations were made by members of the public from all over Scotland, who were asked to vote for pubs with a welcoming atmosphere, where customers came back again and again.
The Park Bar, on Argyle Street, Glasgow, is a small piece of the Highlands in the heart of the city. Landlady Nina Steele is originally from South Uist, and the pub has been a destination of choice for those from the Highlands since it opened in 1895. With traditional Scottish music playing four nights of the week, a lively atmosphere is always guaranteed, and Nina will hope that the pub can go one further after making the finals in 1997.
The awards, dubbed the licensed trade ‘Oscars,’ are organised by licensed trade magazine, DRAM. Now in their 19th year, they are the longest-established awards of their kind in Scotland, recognising excellence in Scotland’s bar, restaurant and hospitality industries.
