Almost 20 months after the fatal helicopter crash into The Clutha near Glasgow Green a new bar, created in the former smoking area, was opened to relaunch the pub while the interior of the old pub remains sealed off.
BBC: New bar at Clutha opens after helicopter crash
As far as I remember, The Clutha was back in 1990 the first pub I ever visited in Glasgow, and indeed in Scotland. I have never been inside afterwards, although many a time I passed by, often reminiscing about that pint of McEwan’s lager with Jamie. Let us hope that in a few years the sight of the venue will in most passers-by trigger similar pleasant memories instead of recollections of the 2013 tragedy . . .
