The East End is becoming a haven for small businesses and their customers.

The increase in small businesses opening up shop in the east end rather than the usual Great Western and Byres Road has allowed places like Duke Street and the Barrowlands to turn into a retail paradise for those who wish to adventure outside of the ‘Westend Bubble’.

Both eastend tourists and locals can enjoy food in places like Coia’s (who have just celebrated their 90th birthday in Duke Street), the quirky Dennistoun Bar-B-Que and shop in places like the iconic ‘Barras Market’ and vintage shops like “Rip It Up” and “Mr Bens” who have their homes in the Calton district of the east end.
