' I I Nice n S | eaz 421 Sauchiehall Street, 333 963y7. - ’I come here at least twice a week. I enjoy the way it’s always completely different. Either a Friday or Saturday night and then Sunday afternoon for the ska afternoon which is really different. A great way to spend an afternoon.’
- ’It seems to have attracted a big name buzz here, even if they’re coming over to play a dancefloor set, they somehow manage to get them in here playing beforehand. You’re always sure of some sort of surprise.’
- ‘I would say your average punter would be music-oriented, and fashion takes a backseat. I would love to bring people who have never been out in Glasgow here for a real Glasgow welcome. In terms of pretentiousness, there is a definite lack of it here, and no labels! Most folk are just good music driven.’
- ’I must have walked down to the toilets several thousand times, but there have been a few nights when I’ve still got lost, but that’s always the sign of a good night.’
