West end still in demand


Competiton for units in and around the Finnieston area of Glasgow remains fierce, according to Smith & Clough Business Associates, which has confirmed the sale of The Grumpy Goat bar and restaurant.
The business, which opened its doors in July 2014, is said to have attracted a “strong level of interest” from potential buyers, with Smith & Clough claiming the venue sold for a figure “in excess of our asking price”. “The levels of interest we received on this and other recent sales highlights the strong demand from bar and restaurant operators to get in to the Finnieston and west end areas, and this shows no signs of slowing down any time soon,” said director Jonathan Clough.
