The future of leading Glasgow nightclub, Sub Club, is under threat, according to its managing director.
Mike Grieve said that the 410-capacity Jamaica Street clubbing institution faces an uncertain future as a result of a planned Wetherspoon hotel development nearby.
"it's very serious," Grieve said. “It’s serious for us as a business and an established music institution but moreover it’s serious for music venues generally in so far as there is a clear need for them to be protected.”
“I think this sets a precedent that is very concerning for other venues and the night-time economy," he added. "Glasgow punches above its weight in terms of music. Hotels are very important but without the music economy bringing tourists into the city I would question their viability. If no one is here to fill them what’s the point?”
The club are currently taking advice on legal action.
