Tel: 44 141 565 1035's insider take:

Founded as a theater in 1991, this famous Glasgow venue is a cavernous 65,000-square-foot vaulted space underneath Central Station and is an arty enclave among more gritty surroundings. The venue has been modernized but retains its utilitarian "brickwork" look. In addition to the theater, there's a café-bar and restaurant with preclubbing DJs on the weekends, a live music venue, a visual arts space, and club nights that range from chemical pop to electrosleaze.

Restaurant is open daily until midnight. Club is closed Sundays through Tuesdays.
