THE co-owner of Glasgow’s popular Yesbar has announced the venue has been “stripped away”.

Suzanne McLaughlin, independence activist and trade unionist, shared pictures of the beloved bar on Twitter/X and said it was “a sad day” but gave a “sense of peace”.

The Yesbar was rebranded in 2014 by McLaughlin and her ex-husband as a show of force for Yes in Glasgow and it became a hub for activists.

McLaughlin wrote: "An expensive plumbing issue at the same time as horrible separation/divorce between me & once beloved co-owner of @YesBarGlasgow. Sadly he and I became two bald men fighting over a comb.

"A sad day to see it stripped away but a sense of peace for me - it’s all over at last."

After closing in 2019 due to a “plumbing disaster”, the city centre venue donated all its food to homeless charity Glasgow Street Team and did not reopen.

When asked if the space would re-open as a bar again, McLaughlin replied she had "no idea".

The bar previously welcomed several high-profile politicians at the time, as well as a visit from actor Alan Cumming in the run-up to the independence referendum.

It also went on to host several events including comedy nights and pub quizzes.
