Best Events In January
Oh, January. You come around every year and smack us in the teeth with bad weather, empty pockets and post-Christmas blues. But your calendar doesn't have to be dull and dry; from quirky events to bottomless feasts and cosy winter walks, there are plenty of fun things to do. Running low on inspiration? Check out our guide to the best events in Glasgow this January here.
Renowned across town as one of the most welcoming LGBTQ+ spaces going, The Polo Lounge is a hotspot for partying into the wee hours. Literally every night of the week, you'll find this place popping off with killer tunes and mega drinks deals.
A wonderland of music and mischief, this thumping party palace is keeping things lit throughout the week. At all of Manuka's events (like Juicy Tuesdays and Pillowtalk), you can expect some of the best DJs in the city thumping banger after banger, plus there are VIP booths, dance balconies and killer drinks.
When you're not having a chinwag over affordable food and drinks at O'Neill's Grand Central, make sure to check out its Glasgow gigs this January. Every Friday, you'll find musicians taking to the stage to provide you with live tunes, plus there are DJs on Saturdays and a quiz on Sundays.
All Bar One is providing us with some brilliant Glasgow events in January, namely its Sunday Cocktail School. Learn how to muddle, mix and mash three classic tipples (and drink them too), as well as play fun games and knock back a welcome bellini.
Sloans Friday Night Ceilidh is the perfect way to start off the weekend. Get on your dancing shoes and burl around the floor as live band Chitterybite play all of your favourite traditional tunes. Plus, there will be plenty of delicious whiskies up for grabs.
Wrap up this January and see your city on your own two feet. We've created a guide to five handy trails, taking you on a tour of the city's prettiest parks and canals. Plus, we've thrown in a couple of places to tuck into a warming lunch afterwards.
