About Glasgow

Since its rejuvenation in the 1980s, the city has shed its dodgy reputation and gone from strength to strength, now offering an enticing prospect for a weekend getaway. Once an industrial city best known for its shipbuilding, Glasgow has a full fleet of night-time activities with some of the best restaurants and clubs, to complement the existing pubs and bars. You'll find that the Sauchiehall Street area is particularly manic and has the best selection of night time venues. The city is choc-full of drinking dens so you'll never be far from your next beer, or tumbler or whiskey.

The football fans among you will be well aware of the rivalry between Rangers and Celtic and catching a game is a top stag do idea. If football isn't your thing, you can always get involved in the Highland games which are always worth a go, or catch the local rugby union team – the Glasgow Warriors.

Local Tips

Like to gamble?

Head to the Gala Riverboat casino which is next to the River Clyde. It is relatively compact with all gaming tables and machines on one level on the ground floor with a bar as well. There is another bar upstairs and a restaurant where you can have a spot of food with views over the river and you can also chill out on the long balcony.

Spot the celebrities!

Two places that are popular are the Corinthian and Groucho St Jude's which are food and drink hang out spots for celebs like Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle who often pop in. If you like celeb spotting or just cool and funky places to hang out then head on down.

Top nightlife

The most popular club to go these days is Karbon where the music in there is a mix for everyone depending on what night they go but they are guaranteed a good night. Other nightclubs which are popular in the area are Buff Club, Sub Club, Octopussy at the Arches, ABC and Art school.

Vist Loch Lomond

You can travel through the highlands which I would recommend as it is a fantastic tour which includes an excellent boat cruise which will show the views of the highlands which all the stags can enjoy.
