Brought to you by some of the finest late-night minds in the business, Sub Club is gritty, authentic and a bucket load of fun. Known as one of the UK's best clubs, the venue has a no-frills approach to clubbing. Think world-class DJs, great sound systems and a constantly packed dance floor.

Revolution Glasgow

5 user reviews 3

One of the city's best-loved bars, Revolution has got a reputation for its nights of debauchery. With a New York-style aesthetic, this contemporary venue has exposed brick walls, low hanging pendant lights and gilt-framed mirrors. Come here on a weekend and get stuck into the extensive cocktail list, we recommend The Jammy B*stard for those with a sweet tooth.  

Variety Bar

If you're looking for a laid-back, casual drinking affair, head to Sauchiehall Street's Variety Bar. Art deco in its theme, the boozer attracts a mixed crowd, from rowdy students to gig-goers and those just looking to while away a few hours with a pint and a view of the giant fish tank in the middle of the space.
