Annie Millers has been a favorite watering hole for Rangers fans to watch the game and get together with other like-minded sports fans.
Though the property was sold, its regulars were ready to adjust to its new owners. But looks like they would have to make a 180 degree turn to adjust to the new ambiance of the place. The property was purchased by millionaire power-couple Andre Graham and Seamus Sweeney. They own the gay sauna (Pipeworks) next door and plan to expand their business by merging the Pub and the Gay Sauna into one unit. In short Annie Millers will become a feeder bar for the Pipeworks gay sauna.
Says one Rangers fan
“I don’t think many of the old Annie Millers crowd will be popping in when it reopens. Annie Millers was one of Glasgow’s most hardcore Rangers haunts and it was a real shock for a lot of fans when it closed last year. A lot of drinkers were hoping that someone might rescue the pub so it could reopen as it was before. This definitely won’t happen now.”
As the Daily Mail reported
The couple own another gay spa complex in Belfast, which is also called The Pipeworks.
The purchase of Annie Millers was confirmed by property brokers Christie & Co. Estate agent Josh Hill said: ‘We wish the new owners the best of luck for the future.’
Those who patron Pipeworks seem to like it. One person writing on its Facebook page
Lovely place staff are friendly and helpful. Very clean well maintained place. Massive jacuzzi and sauna. Lots of lovely little rooms to lie down in. Only complaint if I’m honest is the steam room its too small. Will be back
