Make a night of it

Glasgow's best excuses to wait until the last train home.

When it comes to restaurants, bars, gigs and events, Glasgow is up there with the best in Europe. We could fill a book on things to do in the city after dark, but to get you started, try this lot out for size.

Feeling crafty

The best of the city’s growing craft beer scene can be found at Drygate Brewery on Duke Street, or WEST Brewery near Glasgow Green. In the South Side, Clockwork Beer Co's microbrewery is well worth a visit.

Dining out

Almost every type of international cuisine is represented in the city and each weekend, foodies will be spoiled for choice at Platform, Glasgow’s celebration of international street food. As the birth place of the Tikka Masala, Glasgow can’t be beaten for a good curry, with Mother India’s Café a true city favourite.

Treading the boards

If theatre is your bag, then you’re spoiled for choice in Glasgow. Upcoming productions in the city include Annie at The King's Theatre, The Girl on the Train at Theatre Royal and Scottish Opera’s The Magic Flute.

Play it by ear

For gig-lovers there’s the iconic Barrowland Ballroom and King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, dubbed “the finest small venue in the world” by NME. Elsewhere, the SSE Hydro regularly hosts some of the biggest acts from Taylor Swift to Take That.
