Rumours had begun circulating on social media this week
Owners of iconic Glasgow restaurant Rogano are hitting back at claims it’s closing for good, writes Lorraine Herbison, pictured right.
The city centre venue has not reopened since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Rumours had then begun circulating on social media this week speculating about its future.
The restaurant’s art deco interior design is based on ocean going liners which were being built on the River Clyde when the Rogano was in its infancy.
It has always been popular with Glasgow’s well-heeled “smart set” and thousands of students from the city’s universities have celebrated their graduation day dinners there over a long number of years.
But Lynnet Leisure say Rogano in Royal Exchange Place, off Buchanan Street, is not for sale and will open again at some point in 2021 following refurbishment.
Lynn Mortimer, MD of Lynnet Leisure, said “Like a number of restaurant groups we are currently going through a period of restructuring as a result of the devastating impact Covid 19 has had on business.
“Following completion of that programme it out our intent that Rogano, following a refurbishment, will open again at some point in 2021. We can confirm the restaurant is not for sale”
