You can’t really visit this city without sampling Scotland’s national drink and a night out in Glasgow isn’t complete without a visit to a whisky bar. The Pot Still (154 Hope Street) in the city centre has a huge selection and friendly locals, while the Ben Nevis (1147 Argyle Street) offers live music to accompany its vast choice of malts.
The Scotia Bar (112 Stockwell Street), Glasgow’s oldest pub, is an unbeatable choice for whisky, an old-timey atmosphere and garrulous locals often in full song.
Glasgow was named a UNESCO City of Music in 2008 in recognition of its legendary music scene. Glasgow nightlife centres around music, whether it’s the infamous juke box at dive bar and indie club Nice ‘n’ Sleazy (421 Sauchiehall Street) or a gig at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut (272 St Vincent Street), the small venue where Oasis were first signed.
Other tips for top musical entertainment in Glasgow include Mono (12 Kings Court) – a winning combo of record store, microbrewery and small gig venue – and the legendary Barrowland Ballroom (244 Gallowgate), known simply as the Barras, with its awesome acoustics and sprung dancefloor.
If electronica is your thing, the Sub Club (22 Jamaica Street), a stalwart of underground Glasgow entertainment since 1997, is still the best place in Glasgow to hear cutting edge tunes.
With venues ranging from cosy pubs to cocktail bars, the West End is a sure-fire bet for Glasgow nightlife. But Finnieston, the area between the West End and Glasgow city centre, has been establishing itself as a hipper alternative over the last few years.
Start your night at the Finnieston Bar (1125 Argyle Street) for cocktails and seafood and move on to Distill (1102 Argyle Street) to sample some of their 100 rums.
