Hogmanay Ceilidh @ Walkabout Glasgow

@ Walkabout Glasgow on Sun, 31st Dec 2023 @ multiple start times (see ticket info)

With a ceilidh on the cards, Walkabout Glasgow is the ideal way of doing something unique to see in 2024. Not only will you wave goodbye to the year with dancing, but also a three-course meal and a complimentary glass of prosecco for each ticket holder.


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. On top of that, there will be beer, fizz and nibbles to fuel you through.


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.

Bar Varia

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