Glasgow nightlifeGlasgow has a fantastic variety of venues. More than 700 pubs and nightclubs include 100 ft long bars, basement clubs, converted churches and river boats. Take a look at what's on offer.

Sub Club

If electronica, house and improvised dance music is your thing, the Sub Club is your place. A platform for up-and-coming music makers as well as established nights such as Optimo.

The Flying Duck

Newly appointed as Glasgow's coolest club, The Flying Duck feels more like a house party than a nightclub. Guest DJ sets abound from Camera Obscura and Teenage Fanclub. Hungry nightowls are also treated to free toast!

Oran Mor

Up the road from the University, this converted church blends traditional Scottish styles over three floors containing a pub, club and performance space. Oran Mor is the place to have 'a play, a pie and a pint'.


Down the cobbled Ashton lane, Brel is one of a number of bars favoured by the locals for its charm. The summer beer garden is practically the University's back yard.

"Glasgow is much more lively and vibrant than other Scottish cities."
