Gay Clubs in Glasgow
Naturally, Glasgow's gay scene is the biggest in Scotland so as you'd expect, there are plenty of LGBT clubs in the city. The majority of these clubs in Glasgow are found in the Merchant City (or the "Pink Triangle", as it's known) and they all have their own unique selling point. Whether you're after some cheesy tunes and camp classics, cocktails with class or a raucous indie night out, have a look at our pick of busiest, brightest and best of gay clubs in Glasgow.

One of Glasgow's most popular gay clubs within the Pink Triangle, the Polo Lounge (or simply "Polo" to the regulars) has been around since 1996. Open seven days a week, this place is a hotspot for guys of all ages, with drinks promotions and discounted entry for students.
The Flying Duck isn't strictly a gay club in Glasgow like the others on this list, but they hold Glasgow's only gay indie club night for people who are a bit bored of the usual cheesy pop tunes. The perfect antidote for when you want to go out, but don't think you can handle a whole night of having this week's top 40 blasted at you on the dancefloor.
While technically a bar, Speakeasy doubles up as a Glasgow gay club at weekends with raucous cheesey parties and chart-spinning club nights. Look out for Speakeasy's cocktail menu, which features classic drinks with a 1920s feel to them and stick around for some of the most fun move-busting in Glasgow.
The Riding Room brings all things cabaret to Glasgow's gay club scene, with a rollicking roster of fantastical performers. The folk at the Riding Room are also purveyors of the teapot cocktail, which is - you guessed it - a fabulous concoction served in a teapot. They like their liquor here too, as the bar stocked up with various exotic brands, including the curiously named "Death's Door Gin". Sounds terrifying. Intriguing, but terrifying.
Taking over Nice 'N' Sleazy, Queer Theory is a unique night of burlesque and cabaret. This March they will be focusing on gay villains through the mediums of music, performance art, poetry and comedy.
