Played several gigs in the Royal Concert Hall. The venue is excellent, clean and has excellent sound quality. If you are playing, performing or attending a show you are in for a treat. Bar prices are as expect at a concert venue.

On a spur of a moment, we dropped by to see what was playing while we were in town, and we were glad we did! They have a nice array of musical offerings!

Excellent venue, helpful staff, great acoustics. Fantastic concert, hilarious master of ceremonies (Neil Dickie) See videos of the concert on Facebook SFUPB #boneymusic. Great seats in stalls row L, easy to get drinks despite seemingly long queues. Parking in the Concert Hall car park next to the Buchanan Street Bus Station for £2.50 after 6pm prepaid so no need to... More

have now been here 10 or 12 times and never disappointed. Will be going again this December to see Bootleg Beatles. Great auditorium sound quality and visuals. Must be Number one venue in Scotland for medium sized concerts.

I have seen many a concert, play, musical all over the world and in my opinion this is the best, It does not matter where you sit you will see and hear the show and not feel you are watching a big screen, obviously there are seats that are better than others closer to stage Ect. Comfortable seating plenty of... More

Found this on my ramble of Sauchiehall. Such a beautiful building. Did not have time to go in to see what was on, but enjoyed the experience of being there.

We were on a day trip meeting up with friends from various areas of Scotland/England and wanted somewhere relaxed to eat and chat that was easy for everyone to find. We made the right choice. Despite a large conference taking place staff were only too happy to push tables together and cater for all ages from young baby to elderly.... More

Was here last week to see Gladys Knight. She was fantastic. The venue as always was great. Comfortable, great sound, helpful staff, much better than those bigger venues which pack you in like sardines and seat you in the Gods. Great venue and a great performance

Well my title says it all. There was nothing to complain about in this venue. Easy to find and once inside a very clean spacious and much larger venue then I had imagined. I had booked ticket for Idina Menzel concert but as I was unsure of how layout was in regards to height from stage I did end up... More

Great acoustics. All seats in main auditorium appear to have great views of the stage. Amazing night.
