Burlesque Shows in Glasgow

Burlesque shows in Glasgow are a niche form of entertainment that has moved into the mainstream in recent years as people continue to crave something a little different from their nights out in Glasgow. While unfortunately, not many bars in Glasgow offer regular burlesque nights, there are several who host pop-up shows with visiting performers. So if you're looking for a cool, quirky, raucous and rambunctious night out, try these Glasgow burlesque bars on for size and watch this space as we add in some one off events too.
