Wolf of Bath Street Diner

Mark Lappin3

Mark Lappin closed the back room of Glasgow’s Howlin’ Wolf on Bath Street for five days last month for a refurbishment of its back room. It’s now a 60-cover diner and, according to the man himself, there’s a bit of a pattern developing here.

He told DRAM, “I have a habit of doing one room awesomely and forgetting about the other one, like I did in both Slouch and Bag O’ Nails. So this time it was the turn of The Howlin’ Wolf’s neglected room to get a proper finish.”

So how’s it looking? “The new ceiling is something else. It’s a stained glass concept that looks a little bit like a Tiffany lamp – plus we’ve decked the place out in actual Tiffany lamps. Because the ceiling is the star of the show, the rest of the interior design is fairly neutral and we’ve installed booths all the way around, with one large table as the centrepiece.”
