It's a well-known fact that Glaswegians love their pubs - and now, some of our favourite bars have been shortlisted in a Scotland-wide hospitality competition.

The Scottish Bar and Pub Awards have returned for its 24th year, and the city has dominated the shortlist.

The awards, hosted by the DRAM, take place on August 20 in the Hilton Hotel with the theme The Greatest Showman.

DRAM's publisher and award judge Susan Young says: “It’s hard to believe that it has been 24 years since we first started the licensed trade pub awards – we were the first magazine to celebrate all that’s good and great about Scotland’s licensed trade

“The latest industry data shows that pubs in Scotland directly employ 52,000 people and support another 15,000. Financially it contributes more than £1.5bn to the Scottish economy overall.
