How do I get to Saint Luke's from Glasgow City Centre?

The venue is located in the east end of the city, next to the Barrowland Ballroom. There are multiple train and bus routes to the area. With Bellgrove train station is a close walk, and Trongate is relatively close.

Nowadays, St Lukes’s is a fantastic example of a modern live music venue. However, it keeps its original decor and incorporates the beautiful Church-style audio atmosphere. In this restoration, the company attempted to keep as much of the church as possible. While also bringing in modern technology for music production, and of course a modern-style bar. This fantastic building has become an important part of east end life and its thriving music scene. There are multiple styles of gigs throughout the year, including all types of arts, like Comedy and Music shows. Admission to the facility depends on the show, however, their bar is open most of the week, so you can still pop down for a drink and enjoy the aesthetics inside. So what are you waiting for? Make the most of your day off, come and see the fantastic architecture and catch a gig!
