Glasgow Nightlife

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.

Theatre Royal

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 is renowned for its live music scene, with a variety of venues catering for small intimate gigs to huge arenas hosting the biggest names. 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!

The SSE Hydro

The SSE Hydro is a multi-purpose indoor arena located within the Scottish Event Campus. It has hosted some of the biggest bands, comedians and singers in the world and is only 2 miles from the hotel.

SEC Glasgow

SEC Glasgow, previously known as the SECC, is the biggest indoor venue on the Scottish Event Campus and is used for hosting large conferences as well as live entertainment.

King Tut’s

King Tut’s is an integral part of Glasgow’s thriving grassroots music scene. Radio 1 named it the ‘UK’s Best Live Venue’ three years in a row and was voted no7 in New York Magazine’s ‘Follow You Bliss List’ – a list of 50 euphoria-inducing destinations to visit before you die! You can also thank King Tut’s for bringing you the likes of Oasis who were discovered here!

The Barrowlands Ballroom

The original Barrlowland Ballroom opened in 1934. Simple Minds filmed the video for their 1983 hit single, “Waterfront”. Bowie, Biffy Clyro, U2, Foo Fighters, Franz Ferdinand and Snow Patrol have all played the Ballroom.
