Nightlife in Glasgow

Well known for a healthy love of drinking and dancing, Glaswegians gather at the East End Barrowland Ballroom to hear major bands, and catch new acts at Nice 'n' Sleazy in the city centre. Brel in the West End is quietly laid-back with its Belgian beers, while One Up Bar & Grill in the city centre is for the champagne set. Back in the city centre, dance to underground sounds at the Sub Club and mainstream music at nearby Garage.
