The Berkeley Suite

A secret Glasgow bar in every meaning of the word, The Berkeley Suite is a decadent, vintage-style ballroom and late-night hangout, hidden behind a pawn shop on the side of the motorway. Nights here feature kick-ass DJs, killer club events and stunning surroundings.

A sultry hideaway that's pinned itself as a den for illicit drinking, draft beer and vintage trinkets, Tabac is easily one of Glasgow's best secret bars. Expect to stumble upon a lusty lair with a back bar that's dedicated its libations to Leche de Pantera, a Spanish legionnaire's drink of choice. 

The Poetry Club plays host to regular small-scale theatrics, performance art, spoken-word events, as well as large parties and live music shows. This secret bar in Glasgow's West End is a dark and cosy auditorium that is just as raucous as the infamous warehouse space that sits above it.
