Glasgow is a great city, offering a variety of fun activities and experiences for students. Whether you’re going to be a fresher next year and want to make the most out of the nightlife or you’re half way through your degree and looking to soak up the culture. Glasgow has something for everyone.
Here are a few of our favourite things to do in Glasgow:
If you enjoy music, King Tut’s is the place for you! Established in 1990, King Tut’s is a piece of UK music history and it is said that Oasis got their big break here! Head over to St Vincent Street to dance the night away. Their basement bar & kitchen also serves up an impressive Roman-style pizza.
If gaming is your thing, this retro arcade bar on King Street is for you. The first of its kind in Glasgow, Super Bario is a great place to enjoy a cocktail or beer whilst attempting to beat the high score in Pac-Man or win a round in Street-Fighter!
Belt out those vocals at Cosmopol. The karaoke bar is open 7 nights a week with free entry every night, so you and your mates can channel your inner pop-idol any time the mood takes you.
Glasgow Film Theatre
Scotland’s original independent cinema, Glasgow film theatre has been showcasing a diverse selection of films for over 40 years. Home to many film festivals, it’s the place to go to get your arthouse and indie film fix.
Packed with affordable attractions, Ashton Lane is the place to be! With lots of affordable attractions, including bars, pubs, restaurants and the famous Grosvenor cinema, Ashton Lane is a great starting point for a student night out.
Vintage and Second-hand Markets
