The Braemar Bar an old established east end local. There has been a pub on this site since 1843. James Crawford the owner was a spirit dealer and a general merchant.
In the middle of the 1800s the McLaren family took it over, their name was positioned above the door for years well after the First World War. In the 1930s Andrew Jamieson was running the pub however the name Fletcher has been known in this pub for over forty years now and is still in the same family today. Some will still remember the Breen family. The pub has been up for sale for a few years.

Three accused under terror prevention act.
Three men appeared on petition at Glasgow Sheriff Court yesterday charged with offences under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, 1974.
William McGuigan (33), James Fegan (26) and Gerald McMorrow (19) are charged that in a house in Glasgow they solicited support, financial or otherwise, by distributing for sale posters supporting the Irish Republican Army.
Fegan was also charged with displaying and offering for sale in the Braemar Bar, 145-47 London Road, Glasgow, posters supporting the IRA.
Mr Joseph Beltrami, agent for all three accused, made no plea or declaration and Sheriff S. E. Bell remanded them in custody for further inquiries. The three accused are believed to be the first ever to appear before a Court charged in connection with the anti-terrorist Act, which came into force a few months ago.
Paisley police meanwhile are seeking a deportation order from Mr Roy Jenkins Home Secretary, for a man who was detained under the Act at Glasgow Airport on Saturday on arrival from Northern Ireland.
On the order being granted the man, Thomas Cupples, aged 27 of Belfast, will be returned to Northern Ireland. 1975.
