Cathouse Rock Club is Scotland’s foremost and original rock club since 1990. Following the running of a successful rock night in Bathgate, Cathouse first opened its doors on Brown Street, Glasgow. It played a mix of rock music including: heavy rock; progressive rock; homegrown heavy metal; Seattle rock; and British metal. After quickly gaining popularity, Cathouse moved to a larger, more central location on Union Street, Glasgow where it is still thriving today.

Cathouse Rock Club is distinguished for leading the way in power age rock and metal with almost 3 decades of decadence. Now in our 29th year, we’re not afraid to embrace some genres you might not to expect in a traditional rock club. Times change, tastes change, and we like to make sure we play a mix of tunes throughout our 3 rooms.


Over the years, Cathouse Rock Club have hosted both huge names in rock as well as smaller, more local bands. Our favourite performances include Anthrax; Black Stone Cherry; Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes; Pearl Jam; Bring Me the Horizon; Queens of the Stone Age; Fall Out Boy; Halestorm; Beartooth; Static X; Soil; and Shangela. Make sure you check if any of your favourite bands are playing soon! As an alternative club and venue, we love to host regular alternative shows and events. Check out our monthly HellBent! Drag Show!
