Glasgow City Centre club, The Arches, is something of an institution. You'll find students flocking there on a Tuesday for discounted entry and cheap drinks but if you're a more seasoned raver, head down on a Saturday night for the world's longest running house music night, Subculture. There's a reason why the Subbie has been around for more than 25 years and it shows no signs of slowing down yet.
Buff Club is a cool little club hidden down a cobbled lane just off Bath Street. Expect soul and funk tunes with a laid-back young crowd who are up for a boogie to the retro classics. A great club in Glasgow's city centre for people who are a bit bored of the usual chart cheese playing at other clubs.
Getting down to the nitty gritty of clubbing in Glasgow city centre, The Flying Duck is a great place to head on a night out in town. Hailed for their late nights, unique roster of DJs and quirky partying, The Flying Duck are for the casual and the cool of the city as you flit between food, live music and more.
Open 356 days a year since 1994, The Garage knows a thing or two about hosting a brilliant club night. With a different themed night every week, it's safe to say there's something to please everyone. Party animals will love the bouncy castle and hot tub and the more reserved types will enjoy the indie tunes in the Attic Bar. If you're after something a bit fancier, book the VIP bar and enjoy your own private booth with bottle service.
When it comes to one of the best rock clubs in Glasgow's city centre, there's only one name that comes to mind, and that's The Cathouse. Home to some of the best punk and alternative nights in the city, this nitty gritty club roars on into the early hours.
ABC is the host of three of Glasgow's busiest club nights and has a reputation for being one of the best clubs in the city centre. Thursday is a big student night, with cheap drinks and chart music, Friday is all about top indie tunes featuring guest DJs every other week and Saturday is, well, more or less a mix of Thursday and Friday.
