Glasgow Nightlife

Glasgow’s music scene is vibrant and creative, and many successful pop artists began their careers in its pubs and clubs. Celtic Connections is probably one of the world’s most important festivals of its kind, and the city’s summer Jazz Festival has attracted some of the world's finest players.

When it comes to nightlife, the city center and the West End are alive with pubs and clubs

offering an eclectic mix of everything from bagpipes to salsa to punk. The biweekly magazine the List, available at newsstands and many cafés and arts centers, is an indispensable guide to Glasgow’s bars and clubs.
