The Dowanhill Bar has been around for many years. In 1899 Andrew Wotherspoon was landlord paying an annul rent of £80.
The Dowanhill Bar sits proudly at the corner of Dowanhill Street and Dalcross Street formerly known as Buchanan Street.

Mr William Brown Johnston was one of the owners of this old pub.
It was a sad day when I saw this old Partick pub close Down in 2012. However it was not long before new owners took it over and transformed the place. It was taken over by Barney formely manager of Edinburgh’s Bongo Club, and Glasgow’s Flying Duck and Steve, from Bis. The guys wasted no time in introducing good beers and fab food. Including beers from Glasgow’s own West Brewery at Glasgow Green. The Chef once worked for Cafe Gondolf.
