Glasgow's music scene is by far the best in Scotland and among the best in Britain.

Practically every musical taste is catered to, whether you like rock, pop and blues, cool jazz or folk music hearkening to the ancient local culture, the spirit of Glasgow sings as you wander back to one of Glasgow's holiday homes.
When exploring the Glasgow nightlife, a great place to start the night out is the Blackfriar's on Bell Street. Not only will you enjoy superb live jazz but you'll also find an extensive selection of dozens of artisan beers, one of the city's best selections. Take some home to enjoy in your holiday apartment. Later on, one dance club that is definitely worth checking out is The Cathouse, where live rock bands play to the heavy beat of a younger crowd. Such clubs can only be rivaled in the vibrant city of Newcastle, with its large selection of bars and nightclubs.
