Although initially intended as a members‘ only club. The Apartment opened its doors to the public a year ago. A very stylish. but small place where you can be sure to find the rich and famous supping champagne into the night. It was here that The l‘ugees wound down after their concert last October and where designer Paul Smith got down on the dance floor.

Good in the bar areas. problematic on both dance floors. (a (iood mix of booths. tables and chairs. and benches. m Genarally a smart dress code.

Security is professional with an extensive search.

A year old and still Glasgow's newest club. Archaos is astoundingly big with more area given over to standing bar space than danceflmrs. Betty's Mayonnaise is a club connected to the main venue which occasionally operates independently. but more often offers a different vibe to Archaos itself. The big house and garage tunes tend to dominate club nights. with Sunday night's Shirley‘s Temple being a tad more sussed. Clothes- wise. the club is pretty dressy. although not as stylish as some other Glasgow

An incredibly versatile. extensive venue housed in the archways under Central Station. Fridays feature Glasgow techno meisters Slam. with Stuart and ()rde. plus the world's best guests playing to a distinctly up-for-it crowd. Saturdays rotate between club nights. including the outrageously ()T'T hard house mixed night Love Boutique; the hard house. techno-led Cool Lemon; garage housers U rbansoul and pretenders to the Scottish superclub throne Colours. Dressiness tends to go hand in hand with the cost of the ticket. so check The List for details.

a Relaxed dress code. Stewards' attitude is fair and the search is cursory.

The Arena has had trouble finding a strong identity over the years. After toying with techno nights. it has gone for commercially sound student sounds. Saturdays now have the indie dance night Dust Up and Thursdays feature a Britpop night. Parklife.
