This cavernous former ballroom retains many, if not all, of its original features. This includes the fabulous glitter ball, which hangs perilously over the thronging masses. The Barrowland Ballroom is probably one of Glasgow's most popular rock and pop concert venues, with many bands preferring to play two or three nights here as opposed to a single performance in a hall with a bigger capacity but less character. Only well-known acts perform here and the atmosphere is fantastic and definitely worth a visit. It has even collected a few awards, voted second best small venue in Europe and the best in the UK.
