Glasgow East End: Don't Miss
Hang out with the YBAs
Wasps Artist’s Studio, Hanson Street, 0141 554 8299
A charity-funded design space that offers young artists and recent graduates career support and exhibition space. Watch out for the Next Big Thing here.
Barras Market, Gallowgate, 0141 552 4601
Go for the sights and people-watching as much as for a bargain – the Barras truly is an East End institution, selling everything from fruit and veg to antiques, with plenty of banter in between.
An old timer
The Scotia Bar, 112-114 Stockwell Street, 0141 552 8681
Widely claimed to be the oldest bar in Glasgow, the Scotia has been serving pints down by the Trongate since 1792. It’s full of traditional character and charm and hosts regular live music.
