A friendly Celtic Connections gig
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Speech Impairment
Round from the corner from the Barrowlands this much more accessible venue is the place to see a gig in Glasgow. I've been here a few times before and really have had a brilliant experience. We went for some chips and a wee drink in the bar before, it was really busy but it didn’t feel too crowded. Good range of tables and seats at different heights. I would suggest if you are going before to book a table as it’s a busy bar. There was a singer doing covers, who was very good but extremely loud and it was difficult to talk and hear. The entrance is good if you use the glass side door, there is an electric lift up to the hall, otherwise there's three shallow steps up to the hall. It wasn't an opening busy gig so there was plenty of room standing without feeling crowded - the same for the bar.
Transport & Parking
We walked about 20 minutes from Glasgow queen street station, but that was by choice. I've got an taxi right up to the front once.
Access is good as mentioned before. A ramp could be more practical than the complicated electric lift.
Great spacious clean accessible toilet. Red chord tie was not freely hanging. It’s on the ground level next to bar, it’s not too obvious that it's an accessible toilet, maybe larger sign?
Very friendy, helpful and listened to me
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Normally upstairs is open, this time it wasn't and it’s nice to get a seat up there, if you are able to get up there. Some seats where downstairs but it was a free for all and I really would had liked a seat.
