Social change for Glasgow bar

Drugstore social Yorkhill
The Yorkhill venue has changed hands.

THE unit which housed The Drugstore Social bar in the Yorkhill area of Glasgow has been sold to an existing operator, subject to contract, following what’s described as a high level of interest.

The former Kained Holdings cocktail bar on Old Dumbarton Road was named as one of the ‘hottest new bars in the world’ by Condé Nast last year.

Kevin Hunter of property firm CDLH said: “We received a truly phenomenal level of interest with over 30 viewings at the unit within two weeks,” he said. “This was due to a mix of location, fit-out and attractive in-going and operational costs.

“Given the level of interest, a closing date was promptly set, with a large number of offers received and our clients were delighted with the response and outcome.”
