I noticed that the old Chinese restaurant under Gilmour street station has been refurbished, looks like it might be a bar or restaurant. Which would be nice 

I can barely remember it being opened as a Chinese restaurant   🤔

Going to guess around 20 years it been closed, anybody know for certain ?

I know it was open 30 years ago, I bought 2 bottles of wine for my sons mother and her friends on their Xmas night out as a surprise.

Not that she'd remember the nice things I did, but can remember everything f'in else.

Think it was called The Peking Rendezvous.

Was only in it once in the early 90's. Ordered a dish that came with shitloads of bell peppers in it, which I hate, despite no mention of them on the menu description. 🤢

I'd say that it closed at the turn of the century too.:rolleyes:

Pretty sure I remember it reopening about 10 years ago and only lasting a couple if weeks before closing again.

It was my great Uncle Jack's showroom, Sweenie's Furniture.

As well as the Chinese restaurant it was also a nightclub called "The Arches", my former Gallowhill nextdoor neighbour Robert Quinn was the bouncer.

Played with and against him

Liked to show his studs time and time again

Big Oldco fan which was a shock considering his surname

All his and extended family were nutters from gallowhill, big Rab being the worst.

My then future wife and I used to go there in the mid 90’s. I think it was called the Banquet House at that time.

Ice Cream/Dessert Shops must be the new Tanning Salons. In addition to the one in Ladyburn St and the 2 already in Glasgow Rd, there's another opening in Glasgow Rd in the former Chameleon tattoo shop and yet another in the old William Hill opposite Kennedys.

There's one in Rowan Street too, where the takeaway shops are.

It's kind of odd as I was talking about this kind of thing with my parents earlier in week. We had got onto subject of what things were like in 60s etc and ice cream/desert shops were commonplace in such as largs, saltcoats etc. Think it came into line with them going tenpin bowling then (when you had to count own score) and how all these things go in cycles.

Although being in west Cumbria, we haven't caught up with the tanning salons yet........................not saying they are slow here but😉
