“Grear concert venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

Ive been to the barrowland twice now each time to see The Fun Lovin Criminals its a great venue the atmosphere is fantastic and i could almost touch Huey loved the smaller venue as i hadnt been before i mean its not very nice inside but that doesnt matter the atmosphere more than makes up for it.

“Top venue - been many times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

Barrowlands are a fave of mine when an artist I like announces they're playing there *Bonus*

Entry is normally swift with a small Q - security are always friendly. You go through a metal detector on the way in and if you're carrying a bag then a quick search of this.

You head up the stairs to the first level where you can get merchandise - go to the toilet or leave your coat in the cloakroom.

Head upstairs to the next level into the ballroom - it's an intimate venue with standing room in front of the stage

The venue gets busy enough for a great atmosphere but never so heaving that you can't get back out for a beer or to the toilet easily enough

The beer and other drinks prices are reasonable. Temperature is hot but bearable. Small camera's have been allowed to the events I've been to.

At the end of the gig when you head outside it should be pretty dark by now - head over the other side of the road and have a look back to the Barrowland - you'll see the famous lights on!

Check venue for wheelchair access and any age restrictions to your event. First aid is available on event nights.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Been to the barrowlands many times for concerts and must say its one of the best venues in the uk. The sound is fantastic and overall feel of the place is great. The main niggle is the area around is awful some of the pubs are what I'd say as questionable but that's not the barrowlands fault.
