Whether you're a budding chef or just fancy a cool activity, YO!'s sushi school is bound to be brilliant. Not only will you construct bites such as crunchy Cali rolls, salmon nigiri and sashimi, but also enjoy the fruits of your labour.

This quirky restaurant in Glasgow transports you to the streets of Bangkok with its vibrant interiors and flavoursome dishes. On top of that, Thaikhun shakes together a mean selection of fun cocktails, including the Muay Thai kick and the MahaNakhon martini.

Bar Varia is an all-singing, all-dancing, German-themed bar that's perfect for quirky nights out in Glasgow. This classic bier halle boasts a mighty selection of brews, which it pairs with an equally impressive menu of currywurst, goulash and legendary sausage suppers.

From Mortal Kombat II to Ridge Racer, Super Bario really pulls it out of the bag when it comes to quirky bars in Glasgow. Of course, this arcade bar has a fully stocked bar with beer from across the globe, alongside coffee and American sodas to really make you feel like you're across the pond. 

The Berkeley Suite

What could be cooler than a secret bar that looks like a pawn shop at first glance? Instead of selling off your granny's pearls, step into one of the city's hidden gems. The Berkeley Suite is one of the best clubs in the area for those seeking something a little different.

SWG3

SWG3 is a hub for all things nightlife, boasting a varied event schedule throughout the week. Whether you fancy a raucous rave, an evening of intimate poetry, an epic Bongo's Bingo session or some LGBTQ+ partying, this West End hotspot is bringing the buzz in high supply.

This list wouldn't be complete without mention of Fore Play Crazy Golf. Combining mini-golf (the layout of which is inspired by the city), booze and delicious street food, it's an all-round winner if you fancy something a little different for date nights, group outings and special celebrations.
