Glasgow has it covered when it comes to entertainment, whether it is checking out its legendary music scene or catching a show at one of the historic theatres, Glasgow has it all. Maldron Hotel Glasgow is in the heart of Glasgow’s Theatreland, home to stunning theatres both old and new.
Glasgow’s oldest theatre, Theatre Royal combines old and new architecture to stunning effect and is just a two minute walk from the hotel. Even if not attending a show, the Theatre Royal’s Victorian auditorium and stylish public areas, such as the central spiral stairwell, café and roof terrace, are definitely worth a visit.
The Pavilion and King’s Theatre
Both The Pavilion and King’s Theatre opened at the turn of the 20th century, attracting the leading artists of the day, including a then-unknown Charlie Chaplin. These two historic theatres have continued strong, showing the best touring and home-grown shows.
The Music Scene
Glasgow’s music scene is varied and vibrant, from gatherings of traditional musicians in cosy pubs, international DJs at cultural hotspots to open-air gigs in scenic settings – no matter the venue or genre, you can expect to experience the famously warm Glasgow welcome in surround sound. And then there’s the famous Barrowland Ballroom; one for the bucket list for fans and bands alike!
