Best Bar None Glasgow

The Cathouse Rock Club

Established in 1990 by concert promoter and Big Stuff himself, Donald MacLeod, the Cathouse started life on Brown Street in Glasgow where it grew in popularity from 1990 – 1995. In 1995 it moved up to Union Street, a more central location and, more importantly, a larger capacity venue that was long overdue to allow the club to grow it’s supply to meet the demand of an ever-increasing rock and alternative lifestyle fan base.

No other club in Glasgow, perhaps even Scotland, can boast such a dedicated, timeless following as The Cathouse. For 28 years a consistent and unique relationship has existed between the club and its customers, the venue and its gig goers. It has hosted too many live acts to mention (Pearl Jam, Anthrax, Black Stone Cherry, Fall Out Boy and Shikari Sound System to name a few!) and it really is the trademark destination for those who live a rock n roll lifestyle and appreciate any opt-out alternative aesthetic with their club culture.

Looking to the future The Cathouse continues to evolve and push the boundaries renegading fantastic new club nights, hot new live acts and guest DJs to feed the demanding appetites of ever increasing regulars.
