It’s no secret that many pro-independence Scots are looking forward to the UK’s general election on May 7th.

For those who are pro-independence and want to mingle with others with the same political views, there are quite a few pop-up pubs to open across Scotland prior to the election.

According to STV Glasgow, Yesbar is one happening bar in Glasgow leading the pack. The owner will begin to form alliances with other bars to also change their names to “Yesbar” to partake in the same initiatives during the month right before voting day.

The goal: getting as many pro-independent politicians elected as possible.

What used to be called Vespar, Yesbar give itself a political name makeover by attracting a clientele who stands for Scotland independence. It’s also a great hotspot for travelers who want to get an inside look on locals’ political mentalities.

The bar isn’t funded by any political parties but they’ve forged alliances with several groups (Women for Independence and Common Weal, Scottish National Party, the Scottish Socialist Party…etc.) to use the space without fees.
