The Bang Bang Club brings a touch of class to Glasgow's nightlife scene, with cabaret performers, a big band and vintage music being order of the night. Taking place in the stunning Arta venue, this Glasgow show is sure to be popular with lovers of all things 1920s. We think the Bang Bang Club is the perfect seductive night out. Attire is formal, so think your finest twenties ensemble (that would be headbands, fur and pearls for the ladies, fedoras for the gentlemen) and head to Arta for a swinging vintage inspired night.

The venue doesn't get much better than the style and opulence of Arta. An inspired choice for the venue. Whilst we had a short wait to get in well after the scheduled 8 pm, that was fine - opening night and nerves were probably a -jangle backstage. The muted reds and blacks by candlelight set the scene and whilst there seemed just a tad too many bodies for a relatively small space (this would prove disastrous later on)the expectations were high. Suddenly Sean exploded from nowhere with all the bonhomie of a speakeasy MC, launching into an up beat old style classic jazz number and we all thought any moment the FBI were about to raid the joint..... Well almost. The performers all did their thing very well and with no small measure of aplomb and the night would have went down in Glasgow history.... BUT and it's a huge but. Too many revellers packed in next to a bar too far from the stage will take its toll if unmanaged. And what a travesty the management of the event was! We really felt for the bleeding artists who despite best efforts went relatively ignored except for the phalanx of tables at the front. Our hearts went out to them. We did not feel the same way about the table of young girls next to us who in true TOWIE fashion brayed and snorted their way through every act and were noisy and disrespectful adding to the demise of a show that should have shone with a broadway brilliance. If there is a next time management take heed. DG
