JD Wetherspoon scales down Glasgow hotel plans


JD Wetherspoon has scaled down plans to open a 69-room hotel to a 28-bed one above its Crystal Palace pub on Glasgow’s Jamaica Street.

It has also asked Glasgow City Council for permission to open a beer garden on the land between the pub and Sub Club as part of the £3M project.

Company spokesman Eddie Gershon told DRAM, “We have submitted plans to build a 28 bedroom hotel above the pub, The Crystal Palace,  in Jamaica Street. This would be developed in vacant floors above the pub.

He continued,  “We would also be looking to build a beer garden in the vacant plot by the pub which is owned by the company. If the project went ahead, then we would create 20 new jobs. We believe the plans highlight our commitment to the pub and its customers and to Glasgow itself. Hopefully it would also act as a catalyst for other businesses to invest in the area.”
