St Luke's and the Winged Ox
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair
Quirky-cool concert and event venue with a decent restaurant and good wheelchair access.
Transport & Parking
There are two disabled bays right outside the venue plus other on-street parking options. Taxis can drop off outside the venue, there's just a short push over a paved area to get to the venue. Public transport doesn't go past but it's near the Gallowgate, so you could get a bus to there.
Access was generally very good. The venue is approached across a large slabbed area, which is easy to wheel across. The disabled entrance to the venue is to the right, as the main door is via steps. Once into the venue there's a platform lift that takes you to the concert hall, with swing doors to go through. All in good order. Only thing that could be improved would be a raised viewing area for wheelchair users, as you are dependant on the crowd allowing you to the front if you want to see the stage unimpeded. The restaurant (The Winged Ox) is all on the ground level and easily accessed.
The accessible loo was fine, a nice large room, clean and well laid out, with a red cord all the way to the floor. Shame the bin was pedal operated, though! Also the loo is on the ground floor level while the concert hall is on the first floor.
Bouncers were friendly and helpful without being overbearing. Opened doors, directed us to the concert hall and also operated the platform lift for us.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Would be very happy to visit St Luke's again. Overall, a positive experience. That the restaurant is dog-friendly is also a bonus!
