Glasgow

  • Sharmanka

    Awesome kinetic theatre housed in Trongate arts centre with a Russian restaurant in it (sticking with the sharmanka/communist theme!) and various exhibition spaces.

  • Modern Institute

    Just round the corner from Sharmanka, the Modern Institute which tends to have some far out installations, but the space itself is worth checking out.

  • Mono

    You won't have to walk far, because close-by is Mono for some tasty vegan (surprisingly hearty!) grub and a peruse through some vinyl.

  • Panopticon

    The world's oldest surviving music hall which is like going back in time (Laurel and Hardy played there!). A sweet and shady part of town.

  • 13th Note

    Another one nearby is the 13th Note, which is decent for food, drink, music.

  • Gallery of Modern Art

    If you're into that kind of thing, sometimes great, sometimes bit pretentious.

  • Tramway

    A cool arts space in the South Side with nice gardens.

  • Botanic Gardens

    You should definitely go to the Botanic Gardens and walk along the river to Kelvingrove park and to Kelvingrove museum, maybe up to the University. Its well worth a wander if you have nice enough weather.

  • SubClub

    Of course. The world-famous nightclub.

  • Open top tour bus

    Good way to see the whole city quite quickly and then you can decide what things you want to investigate more. That includes the Barras and the Necropolis which are both worth a look but maybe not top of my list if you only have one weekend.
