Glasgow bar next to Lucky 7 opens as bar with club nights
Darrell and Dom on Wednesday, Rory Hamilton and the Feel My Bicep team on Thursday, Tom, Anton and Ewan at Friday’s Only Fools and House, Korben Dallas and Nushta Droganova (aka Thunder Disco Club) at Saturday’s Power Tools, and Duncan Harvey and Jack Isosceles with Button Up on Sunday. ‘It’s mostly people I know through the Art School,’ says music programmer Claire Harrison. ‘I used to be the events programmer there.’
‘We’d like to have them, definitely,’ says Harrison, ‘but I think what we’ll do is build up slowly and get our reputation as a good bar together, then see where we go from there.’
‘There’s a lot of disco, that’s the common thread between them,’ says Harrison. Otherwise, expect fun 80s hip hop, funk and soul on Wednesdays, house with a heavy hint of Italo and cosmic disco on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and, perhaps most intriguingly, what the press blurb describes as ‘a mix of sleazy R&B, 50s and 60s pop, jump jive, Jamaican vibes and exotica from a bygone age’ on Sunday.
What they say
'The owner of the Lucky 7 Canteen next door got a hold of the lease for the place,’ says Harrison, ‘and decided to reopen it as a bar and club space to complement the restaurant. It’s a free drinker with a 3am licence, which I don’t think there are many of in the centre of Glasgow. Not many you’d want to go to, anyway.’
What we say
Cheap and cheerful student-focused establishment it may be, but the fun flat theme and a superior line-up of DJs playing music that steps far outside the norm gets us excited.
