Well known popular venue, “Bar Strada” in Hamilton has closed its doors for good.

The bar which has been on Cadzow Street for almost 28 years has made a difficult decision not to reopen it’s doors after being forced to close during the Covid19 pandemic.

The news will sadden many local people, including those who remember the venue as ‘Mitchell O Briens”. We know many people in Blantyre who made a visit to this bar before going on to nightclubs. It was part of weekend culture for lots of people being one of just a few bars which stayed open late on Fridays and Saturdays. Bar Strada Halloween and Christmas parties were very popular.

Their spokesperson said, “A big thanks to all our staff past and present who made Strada what it was. And of course, we want to say thanks to all our loyal customers over the years who we have had some amazing times with. Some great times that won’t be forgotten.”
