A Weekend with the Girls: Ultimate Evening Activities in Glasgow

Whether you’ve been put in charge of organising your best mate’s hen do or you just fancy a well-
deserved weekend away with the girls, you can be sure that the Scottish city of Glasgow will provide
plenty of evening entertainment to make it worth your while. It doesn’t even have to be a costly trip –
if you look for Glasgow hotels from Travelodge, you can land on some excellent value, comfortable rooms which won’t break the bank.

Add a dash of the unknown and head for an unfamiliar city. If you have never been to Scotland
before, now is a perfect time to do it and will result in plenty of fun, laughter and lasting memories.

The Madness Theatre of Fun is an absolute must do during your evening antics. Situated on Bothwell
Street in the city centre, this party-to-the-max bar will guarantee an excellent atmosphere and plenty
of excuses to dance till you drop. If you’re there on a Saturday night, you can experience the buzz
that the DJ emanates as he liaises with the crowd – while if you fancy making a night of it, you can
book in advance to enjoy dinner on the mezzanine level.

You don’t need the excuse of a hen party to organise a little group participation when the night is
young, either. Why wait until then to book something a bit different for you and the girls to enjoy?
You can pay homage to the late Michael Jackson by learning the moves from the awesome Thriller
music video, with the help of a trained professional. Do you think you have what it takes to be the best

Head over to the West End for some of the liveliest establishments for your night. Perhaps organise a
theme so that you and the girls have a reason to dress to impress. Whatever you decide, Byres Road
and Ashton Lane are perfect spots to hit the bars. Some of the most notable ones include Oran Mor
and Jinty McGuintys that will surely provide plenty of fun and a cracking atmosphere.

Let’s not forget that with night, comes the following day. Slow down on the drinking and you can
enjoy a myriad of activities in and around the city, rather than nursing a hangover from hell. As the
largest city in Scotland, Glasgow is expected to have its fair share of shops and it certainly doesn’t
disappoint. Whether it’s high street stores you want or you prefer to browse some of the delights that
the boutique stores of Ingram Street has to offer, you can. Similarly, if you’re spending a couple of
nights away with the girls, what better way to spend the morning after, than at an inner city spa, being
pampered to the max?

Whatever you decide to do once you have made your way to bonnie Scotland, make use of the
budget accommodation in central Glasgow to keep your costs low and your fun factor high.
