- 10 September 2014
Featuring ShangriLa, Propaganda, Neverland and Hip Hop Thursdays
The exalted industrial cave-like underground hosts some of the biggest names in dance and prides itself on the finest deco on the Glasgow club scene. This weekly night offers low-price drinks and an anything-goes attitude – perfect for channelling the spirit of 90s rave.
The Arches, Wednesdays, £5.
Propaganda is a UK-wide affair, and it hits this stellar Glasgow gig venue every Friday night. Though claiming to have an indie focus, it veers slightly towards the commercial side of the scale. But a big dancefloor, student friendly prices and famous guest DJs do make it a great start to the weekend.
O2 ABC, Fridays, £4 (£5 non-students).
A bouncy castle, candy floss and treasure chests are just a few of the novelties on offer to students at this playful and delightfully over-the-top night out. Big and bold, the Garage offers six different rooms depending on your mood. There's a big frat party feel to this one.
Garage, Thursdays, £6/£4.
With a wealth of music genres throughout the week, the Buff Club have hip hop sealed up on Thursdays. Understated décor, complete with a lone disco ball, make it a popular destination for those seeking a more laid back feel than is usual on Glasgow’s ambitious club circuit. The low entry fee is also quite welcome.
The Buff Club, Thursdays, £3.
