Believe it or not, there is an entire clubbing experience outside of Glasgow. (We know shock to us as well.) Why not try one of our five picks outside of Glasgow this weekend?

GlasgowLiving gives you a quick guide to clubbing away from the Dear Green Place.

5. Hush


A nightclub in Coatbridge? Who knew it! However Hush is actually pretty decent if you’re looking for a nightclub with different surroundings that won’t cost you a night in a hotel. Weekly drink promotions, decent entry fee and DJ’s playing music that won’t destroy your soul. Worth a venture out to Coatbridge.

4. Tropicana & Vogue (Fat Sams)

Club Tropicana

A Dundonian institution, Fat Sam’s days as an important part of Dundee’s nightlife appeared to nearly up with declining customers week by week, at one point the nightclub was only open 4 hours per week. Times have changed and there are now better opening hours. Worth a visit next time you are in Dundee.

3. The Lizard Lounge

Lizard loUNGE

St Andrews infamous nightclub, probably the smallest club on our list but, you know what they say, size doesn’t matter, it’s what you do with it that counts. Open every night until 2 and a strong student crowd creates a decent atmosphere. However be aware after 12, it gets busy and sweaty.

2. Cabaret Voltaire


Arguably Edinburgh’s best nightclub, Two floors, cavernous sounds and plenty of club nights. Cabaret Voltaire’s music is also top notch, underground has never been so popular. Provides cheap drink deals during the week for students and the weekend’s prices won’t crush your bank balance (or your spirit). Well worth visiting, you won’t be disappointed.
