“Very good gig venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We saw both the Punch Brothers and the Carolina Chocolate Drops there and got a "perch" leaning in front of the bar area which affords you an elevated postion over the main standing area. Great gig.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Went to see Public Enemy live. Excellent hall and acoustics, you are really close to the stage and unlike other venues, there is no barrier between you and the stage, so one can stand literally infront of the stage if you want. Alternatively, you can stand at the back, still with great views and great sound. The bar is overpriced, as with most music venues. But staff are very friendly and helpful. Would definetly return for future gigs. There is a locker room for bags, jackets, etc. but I had left my bag in an area near the bar and noone touched it. Also, excellent location, just walk on Sauchiehall Street and it is on the right hand side, near the Willow Tea Rooms and the Celtic Shop, etc. Very convenient for wheelchairs, as there is a seperate area for wheel chairs which gives a brilliant view.

“Two fun filled venues,different music tastes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2007

Campus, Garage,The republic and the block are all along this strip but the new ABC has the edge.
Two halls and a different music type in each. I did not particularly like either type tha night i was there but it did not stop us having a jolly good night out.
It is very popular with the foreign students as the student hostels are given free guest passes,tres cosmopolitan is the result.
The atmosphere was on holiday vacation rather than serious scottish drinking which a lot of the bars have,but then this is the nightclub scene and this terms in place to be.
Go early unless you want to Q.
Or get a free guest pass to fasttrack the Q.
