"Glasgow has everything. There are Wetherspoons and cheap pubs as well as more upmarket places for a more special occasion. Places vary from quiet pubs to chat in to pubs with live music varying from R&B to rock. It's mostly free entry for bars and there are student nights in the clubs. There's a good gay scene too."
