The best new venues in town
Residents So far Pinup Nights are confirmed to launch this new venue.
Guests We are promised top quality bands and DJs from the get go.
Music policy Varied and eclectic.
What they say ‘In these days of large, homogeneous, soulless operations and venues, The Beat Club represents a unique, independently-owned stylish venue on Sauchiehall Street. This will be a nice comfortable sized venue and a late-night drinking establishment which will allow us to exercise a door policy. Expect good service, approachable stewards, nice décor, music lovers, great bands, off duty DJs and bar staff, TLC, good manners, great diverse music and Dave hanging about every night we are open. Don’t expect bad haircuts (circa the Hibs first team), the lowest common denominator or under agers. Door policy: If I wouldn’t have a pint with you, then forget it.’
What we say: Yippee. Even the prospect of another quality independent venue makes us hot under the collar. It’s got a plethora of good things going for it. Firstly it’s run by the man behind The Admiral on Waterloo Street, Mr Dave Ross. This man knows his stuff, having earned his stripes DJing, promoting and managing many a Glasgow institution. Plus if the success of The Admiral is anything to go by, then this one is already a winner. With Pinups at the helm, The Beat Club is guaranteed a noble mix of brilliant live music alongside reputable DJs. Expect their usual party mixture of electro-pop, indie and funk. (Sandra Marron)
