The Clutha Bar
The Clutha Bar was the scene of a terrible accident on the night of 29th November 2013 when a Strathclyde Police helicopter fell out of the sky and landed on the flat roof of the pub, resulting in the death of ten people, including all three helicopter crew and seven people who were inside the pub.

The pub reopened in may 2015, around which time a 50 metre long, graffiti style mural was painted on the exterior walls. The mural was painted by local graffiti artists Rogue One (facebook LinkExternal link ) and Ejek (facebook LinkExternal link ).

The mural features several well known (mostly show-business) characters who have a connection with the pub either as artistes or customers (or both). These include Stan laurel (comedian), Mary Barbour (Govan Socialist), Benny Lynch (boxer), Johnny Ramensky (safe-breaker) Woody Guthrie (musician), Spike Milligan (comedian), Billy Connolly (comedian), Gerry rafferty (Musician), (The Sensational) Alex Harvey (musician), Frank Zappa (musician), Jimmy Reid (Trades Unionist), John Martyn (musician), Glenda Jackson (actress & MP), Rupert Everett (actor) and David Hayman (actor).
