Whyte and Mackay opens a one of its kind pop up bar 150 feet up on a crane

The Glasgow based whisky brand Whyte and Mackay is commemorating its 170th anniversary with a pop-up bar like you’ve never seen before! Titled The Lion’s Clyde, this unique bar is situated atop the 150 foot Titan Crane! Located next to the River Clyde. The wheelhouse of the 107 year old crane has been converted into a tiny bar with brick walls, wood paneling, bar stools and the ever present bar snacks. It can seat 8 individuals and will be open until the 6th of June.

This venture allows Whyte and Mackay to pay tribute to their roots as the award winning whisky company was created by James Whyte and Charles Mackay in the docks of Clydebuilt. The bar is meant to feel cozy and local, intended to bring friends together after a long day. As the bar is open for a mere handful of days, entry will be limited and available strictly on a first come first serve basis to individuals who sign up via Whyte and Mackay’s Facebook page. Lucky selected individuals will be picked up via a complimentary taxi ride and transported to the bar through a lift. They can spend an hour at the pub in the company of up to seven friends while enjoying a dram.
