The Glasgow Art Club: Established 1867
The Glasgow Art Club always welcomes New Members into its fold, and it’s not just a club solely for artists! Located in the heart of the city, The Glasgow Art Club is the private members' club with a difference. Steeped in culture and heritage, the Club has been a meeting place for generations of the city’s most innovative and creative inhabitants.
Become a regular in the fun and relaxed environment of the Glasgow Art Club and experience a better way of socialising, networking and meeting new people. With a fully stocked bar, a restaurant serving delicious lunches, two exclusive private dining/drinking/meeting rooms and our impressive Gallery space, which lends itself fantastically to regular live music events, we really do have something for everyone.

We run guided tours of our historic building, please book via eventbrite (booking is essential, max 12 places per tour)
We also offer room hire for private groups which can include anything from corporate board meetings to venue hire for concerts or art events and private dining experiences. The Glasgow Art Club offers a stunning and unique building to host a variety of events.
Each month we feature the work of one of our Artist Members, giving them the chance to showcase their work on the Club’s website. Their work is also on display in the Club for the duration of the month.

Soft Invasion is a response to the quiet, unsuspected reawakening of intolerance, nationalism and bigotry brewed up by the political and social crisis enveloping our world at the present time. Wild, blinkered ideas are tearing across the land, and it is too late to bolt the stable door. Cheery, eh?
