Welcome to the new GetOutGlasgow

In the 2 years since I launched GetOutGlasgow, it’s seen quite a number of iterations in terms of both the type of content we’ve been publishing and the look of the site. Today we’re launching the latest version and, in my opinion, the best yet. Built completely from scratch, using the latest techniques, the site has been built from the ground up with mobile users primarily in mind (given that consistently 60 to 70% of the site’s traffic is on… Keep Reading

Planning a Glasgow Wedding: Issue #3, Glasgow Wedding Collective Fair

The bank holiday may sadly not have been a sunny one for Glaswegians, but luckily there was plenty of fun to be had indoors for the city’s brides-to-be and their bridesmaids, mothers, fiancés (and even fathers, aunties and uncles if you count the sizeable and supportive entourage I dragged along) on Sunday at The Glasgow Wedding Collective Showcase. Held from 11am-5pm at The Lighthouse on Mitchell Lane (handily, just off Buchanan Street) the GWC’s website promised that their showcase offered… Keep Reading

Best Clubs in Glasgow For Over 18s

Due to recent tragic events, the Godfather of Glasgow nightclubs The Arches has taken the decision to review its entry policies, meaning that effective immediately all club nights in the venue are now over 21 events, as opposed to the previous age restriction of 18.

Although The Arches,… Keep Reading

Although, I say ‘18 months or so’, I actually know exactly how long we have until the Big Day because… *Drum roll please*…we have set a date! On Friday December 4th 2015 we will officially… Keep Reading

Take On The 5×50 Challenge

Scotland has among the highest mortality rates in Europe for some of the worst health problems imaginable, and the shockingly low life expectancy here in Glasgow cannot be explained merely by poverty or even by bad behaviour alone, it seems, with epidemiologists today still dubbing the mysterious underlying phenomenon at the root of the cause “The Glasgow Effect“. Or to put that in simpler terms… “dinnae ken”. But now it looks as though this great land of “deep fried anything”… Keep Reading

Best Nightclubs in Glasgow

Okay so Glasgow’s got a booming burger bar industry, a cool craft beer scene, some slick cocktail bars, and some rather wild (and mega cheap) student nightclubs. But when it comes to Glasgow nightlife, the thing that makes this city so infamous, no it’s not the Bru bombs, or the deep fried Mars bars at the end of the night (who actually eats those?), it’s our iconic clubbing. Glasgow churns out world class DJs, spawns acclaimed EDM labels, boasts some… Keep Reading
