Attended last night. Loved the venue, accessibility and the atmosphere. This still felt intimate in a way even though it is a big venue. Clean, organised and drinks fairly priced as well.

The Concert Hall is centrally located in Glasgow and is accessible by everyone. Staff are friendly and helpful and acoustics sound.Have seen variety of types of concert here and enjoyed them all, particularly the Christmas ones...makes the start of the Festive Season. Prices for the bar are a bit steep.

We came to see Michael Bolton and were pleasantly surprised to see how close we were to him. The bar was great and service was very quick. It was decorated lovely too.

Loved the angle and spaciousness of the seating, plenty of space from the person next to you. Lovely staff.. however obviously concerts on cater more for the older generation. Cafe and 2 large bars great for the intervals. TV in the foyer which shows the concert if you nip to get a drink is handy.. but awful crackly quality!

always a pleasure to visit the concert hall, great atmosphere, always something different and more special from other larger venues. Good Bar Service, although pricey as expected! And a good selection of shows, in terms of variety.

Good sound and very well organised. Staff really attentive but can be a bit intrusive. Our visit involved them repeatedly asking folk to turn off phones.....understandable but meant they spent the evening interrupting the performance we were watching.

This was the first time I visited this concert hall and was very impressed with all its facilities. The acoustics seemed very good, the seats extremely comfortable and the foyers and bars had plenty of space. In spite of a very large audience there was never any feeling of being crowded anywhere. This concert hall appears to have a very... More
