A 60-cover gastro-pub called Whistler on the Green will open in early April in the former Whistlin Kirk on Glasgow’s Greendyke Street. Brian Traynor and Ricky Scoular, the guys behind the city’s A’Challtainn sh restaurant and events space at Barras Art and Design have taken on the lease.
Brian told DRAM, “It’s getting a full overhaul at the moment but we’re keeping many of its original features and we’ll be restoring the exterior too. This is local to us. Plus, with the number of events at Glasgow Green on the up, it’s getting busier around here. We have also applied for a pavement licence.”
Brian also lodged a licensing application to open a Mexican restaurant called Paco at 95 Kilmarnock Road in Shawlands. He hopes to open it in the summer.
