“Gig/Fun night out venue!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Been here several times for gigs, 'Jellybaby' Thursdays and weekend nights out. Never been disappointed yet as the atmosphere is fun, lively and a little crazy but not spill drinks down you mental. Never seen a fight in here or had anyone stand on me without apologising.

Staff serve very well, drinks are good and reasonably priced (not cheap but definitely fair!).

Would recommend to absolutely anyone!

“Great venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Have been here the best part of 50 times its a fantastic venue very close and intimate, drinks are reasonably priced and there is a club night every Thursday Friday and Saturday and usually free entry is given on Friday after the gig, drinks are priced from a quid on a Thursday which is my favourite night the music is a great variety unlike a RnB nightclub for instance you get it all on a Thursday!! Will most obviously be going back

“Cheap student night out!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

The ABC is a good student night out

ADVANTAGES
-good location! At the heart of saucehall street so easy to get to if you want to go to a bar first
-good club nights are run Thursday(jellybaby). Jellybaby is more chart music and then Friday(propaganda) more indie music
- cheap drinks! £1 vodkas and shots all night
- good music
-big big place so a great atmosphere
-seating avaliable
-cloakroom avaliable

DISADVANTAGES
- people's main disadvantage are the bouncers. Personally I've never had any trouble but boys often do expecially in big groups
- often big queues outside particularly on Thursdays
-so very busy inside sometimes it's just too busy!

Overall, I would recommend to go here. It's a good student night out. Good vibes and cheap drinks!

“Top venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Top venue for intimate gigs.
My second visit here recently to see Beady Eye, having previously been her to see Jet a few years back.
Great to be so close to the band and here the music VERY loudly. Immense heat inside if you are down the front, so don't wear a jacket!
Looking forward to going to more gigs here in the future, one of my favourite venues in Glasgow!
