Glasgow’s Sub Club is celebrating its 30th birthday, having weathered bad 90s techno, empty dancefloors and fake IRA gunmen. Its leading lights explain how they’ve carried on for so long

I’ve been having a meeting with my licensing lawyer about a potential planning threat to our business right now. It’s something I can’t get into, but you’re beholden from the moment you become a licensee; someone else has the power of life and death over your business. There’s a lot of people who can influence those decisions – health and safety, police – from all different angles. And they’re not necessarily rational. The perception of clubs as contributors to crime is very prevalent in society, and there’s very little recognition of the economic impact.

As predicted then. The slow, protracted death of the subby. Killed off by a chain pub of all things.

Even, surely to god, even GCC can't be stupid enough to allow new hotels to impact the Subby and/or King Tuts

Could be a number of things. The building could be being considered for development, as the Sub Club don't appear to own the premises. If someone is applying for planning consent for an alternative use that would gel with the comment as well as the Wetherspoons proposal.
