Swing is a unique underground bar and club located in the heart of Glasgow's city centre. An exciting blend of live jazz, blues, soul and funk bands, aerial acrobats and thrilling performance acts. Our intimate underground venue captures the atmosphere and elegance of the roaring 1920's-30's. Sit back and sip Champagne and cocktails whilst all around you the entertainment unfolds.

Don’t even bother trying to get served at the bar if you are not a man or a “friend” because the bar staff will just completely ignore you.

We highly recommend the club. Very welcoming staff starting at the front door! Really nice atmosphere and the jazz music from McFarlane/McNeil Collective was first class. We will be regulars at this venue no doubt

We were with a party of 10 and it was a hoot. Friendly knowledgeable bar staff. The entertainment was enjoyable but the main attraction was the relaxed atmosphere. We will be back. Thanks.

Very disappointing evening. Long wait between acts, long waits at a quiet bar, very cramped seating, rude staff & owner. Was expecting more from a ‘speakeasy’ type bar which really didn’t hit the mark. Very little Jazz. Wish we had went to Wicked Cabaret!

Booked Swing for a girlie night after hearing some great reviews. This was not what I expected. At £10 a head the entertainment was very much ‘pub like’, our pre ordered drinks had to be ordered again on arrival and the atmosphere was very dull....More

Mixed. A few people dress authentic 20s/30s style but most just go smart. Ties on men nice dress or trousers and sparkly top on women. X

Support acts are usually on till around 10:30pm. The main act usually comes on around 11pm and finish around 2:30am. May vary per night but usually this is about right.
