The options for gay man looking for places to date and party in Glasgow are on the rise. The gay scene in Glasgow only hit the big time in the past twenty years or so but, by golly, has this Scottish city mad up for it since then. Gay bars in Glasgow tend to be in merchant City, along with most of Glasgow’s cosmopolitan night life. There are pubs, there’re bars, there’s restaurants, and there’s clubs.

Glasgow is pretty forgiving and arty city on the whole, so it makes a great destination for gay travellers, and attracts couples, groups and single gay men and women from across the north of Scotland. When you’re planning a gay friendly night out in Glasgow, consider some of these bars and clubs to fill up your night with fun and debauchery.

Archery and Institution

This is an all in one spot for live music, art exhibitions, club nights, and all out mayhem. The Arches is not strictly a gay club but it is definitely gay friendly, there’ll be no need to worry about getting a hard time or holding hands in public in this anything-goes club. When it first opened its back doors in 1982, Bennett’s probably didn’t realise it would grow to become the best loved gay club in Glasgow. Bennett’s is a bit an in institution amongst the gay community in Glasgow and you’ll be treated to the best of pink-pop, chart, and dance music in not only Glasgow’s, but Scotland’s oldest gay club.

Sleek and Chic

The Merchant City is a fairly new area which means that most of the bars in the area are pretty contemporary too. That’s great news if your idea of a date involves sleek bars with a long cocktail menu. Delmonico’s tick all the boxes. It is hip and trendy and smack bang in the middle of the gay village. There’s also their sister club, Speakeasy which is a little further out of the city, near the University of Strathclyde. Speakeasy attracts a free and easy crowd where everyone gets on like a house on fire, gay or not.

Late Night and Off the Wall

For something a bit different, try the Tron Theatre, it’s got its own bar if you just want to drink and a full programme of events if you’re after a little light entertainment. There are also places to eat, art exhibitions, and live music if that’s what you’re looking for. If you like your men manly, head to Burly, the dress code is strictly masculine and if you’re lucky you might even find a true Scotsman in a kilt with nothing underneath. Happy gay dating in Glasgow.
