Where to Watch Eurovision in Glasgow
ABBA, Bucks Fizz, Lordi, Dana International, Jedward, eh Blue, where would we be without the musical prowess of the Eurovision Song Contest? Every year, the good, the bad, the bold and the beautiful of European (and not so European) musical talent (and not so talented) get together for a night of pure unadulterated entertainment. Camp disco numbers, cheesy power ballads and a calibre of continental soft rock that would put David Hasselhoff to shame. Whether you love it, or loathe it, think it's all about the performance, or all about the politics, there is is something just so dang fascinating about the Eurovision. Here's our guide to the best bars in Glasgow to watch the Eurovision.
Always a flamboyant choice for a bar in Glasgow, Katie's invites punters to experience a slice of the European. Look forward to cheap and tasty beverages, raucous camaraderie and one helluva singalong.
The Polo Lounge is the place to be on Saturday night for your Eurovision after party. Dance the night away to cheesy tunes from DJ Will with ABBA, Katrina and the Waves and Loreen - all expected to get you on the dancefloor. Don't worry though, the folks at The Lounge have promised they'll leave Mr Humperdinck off the playlist this year.
On Saturday 10th May, The Admiral gets ready for a Eurovision after party extravaganza, full to burst with dodgy costumes, nul point drinking games and questionable song choices. Doors are at 11pm and entry costs £5-6.
Delmonica's annual Eurovision party never disappoints. Barbra la Bush and Bella Houston kick off a party that won't be forgotten: expect to hear sweet sounds from guest and resident DJs from 9pm. Each table represents a country and guests are invited to book their tables in advance to pick a winner.
