Glasgow Film Festival - A guide to Glasgow’s music and film culture
- The List
- 17 February 2010
The speaker and the big screen fit together nicely as part of the Music and Film Festival, not least because of Glasgow’s legendary band scene. See it first hand in the following places
Nice ‘n’ Sleazy
421 Sauchiehall Street
The aptly named Nice ‘n’ Sleazy is one of the best watering holes in the city centre, and the place to go for a White Russian while perusing the fine list of tunes on the vintage jukebox.
42 Jamaica Street
This looks like your average old man pub, but the live music is almost always excellent, the bar tenders are young and friendly, and the atmosphere is relaxed and jovial.
20–28 Renfield Lane
This fiercely independent café serves vegan food to its boho clientele by day, and turns into a venue for up-and-coming bands at night. There is also a series of regular club nights.
731 Great Western Road
Oran Mor is a picturesque, traditional Scottish bar. Take a whisky to the music venue below, where gigs range from the forgettable, to the just about-to-go-stratospheric, like Marina and the Diamonds.
