The Arches, Glasgow, G2
In 1991, former Arches Artistic Director Andy Arnold realised the potential of the cavernous space underneath Glasgow’s Central Station and received the keys to the space from British Rail.
Twenty one years on, the Arches has become one of Europe’s leading cultural venues, playing host to some of Britain’s biggest club nights, an eclectic range of gigs and exciting new theatre, performance and visual art. People often drop in for lunch or a drink in the café bar and end up staying for the rest of the evening – catching a band, taking in some experimental theatre, or meeting up with friends before heading to the dancefloor.
