The famous Clydeside 107-year-old Titan Crane will be home this week to a pop up bar.

Whyte & Mackay are inviting customers to visit the world’s first pub situated on top of a 150ft crane in Clydebank.

It will be one so the smallest pubs in Scotland at 23 square meters.

A statement from Whyte and Mackay said: “The wheelhouse of the historic Titan Crane in Clydebank has been transformed into a bar named The Lion’s Clyde.

“Complete with brick walls, bar stools, pub snacks and friendly barman banter, it’s a must visit for all Scots. For a limited time only, Whyte & Mackay fans can book the pub for the perfect after work drink and enjoy spectacular views across the city.

“The Lion’s Clyde will celebrate the whisky’s Clydebuilt past while bringing people together to enjoy a dram.”

Entry to the bar will be limited and available on a first come, first served basis to those who pre-book via Whyte & Mackay’s Facebook page.

Those selected will be picked up by a complementary taxi and after taking a lift right to the top of the crane, they’ll be treated to a dram in the purpose built pub.

SOLD OUT but seemingly more slots being released.
