The staff managed well serving a huge crowd in for Tony Bennett. Toilets clean and venue very welcoming.

The café here is very good. There is home-made soup available at lunchtime and the delicious sandwiches are freshly made to order - hence the queue's waiting time. The staff are very pleasant despite the crowds at lunchtime. We have also gone to concerts here and the acoustics are excellent. You can also pre-order any refreshments for the interval which...

The building itself is beautiful (and quite hard to miss) but it's what goes on in side that's the best bit! It's one of the best concert halls I've been to and if you get the chance, definitely go and see a performance there. I've seen several orchestras play and the sound in there is to die for!

The building in itself is lovely and. Must see when in glasgow, (hard to miss really). Th coffee shop is basic but good enough for a rest and a chat with friends. The shop although small is packed with musical, gifts and cards to suite everyone. Of course I would thoroughly recommend going to a concert while your there.

Glasgow Royal Concert Hall adjoins to of the city's busiest streets - Buchanan Street and Sauchiehall Street. It's an incredible venue with plenty to offer in terms of entertainment, and typically has a role to play in some of Glasgow's biggest events. If you get the chance to see anything here don't turn it down!

The Concert Hall is at the top of Buchanan Street where it swings to the left. It is a prominent building and you can't miss it. A little non descript from the outside but nevertheless worth the photo opportunity. have a look you can't miss it.

Having attended a variety of concerts in different seating areas, the acoustics are equally good throughout, the seating spacious and the ambience always convivial.

Visited at 330pm on a friend's recommendation. We'd heard lunches were fab. On arrival we were informed that they closed at 3pm but that we could still order and stay! Bit odd but however we did, only to find that we could only have the slices of cake left over and a drink. No food now available! Anyway we persevered,... More
