Glasgow University Union

We are excited to announce our venue for our Friday and Saturday night parties as none other than the Glasgow University Union!

Located in the heart of the West End, Glasgow University Union is a historic venue with impressive architecture, original features, and a beautiful dancing floor.


Loved by Glasgow dancers, the GUU has hosted many dance classes, workshops, and socials for swing dancers, including regular live band nights, Cake Hops, and the Glasgow Shag Festival.


We can't wait to dance with you here in the heart of the West End of Glasgow!

Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum

Join us for some fresh air and outdoor dancing at the beautiful Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum after the brunch on Saturday! Ideally situated in the West End of Glasgow, there are many cafés, bars, and museums for you to peruse after an outdoor boogie.


This event is free and open to everyone, so please bring your family and friends along to join in the fun!


Please note that this event is weather-dependent (but we promise Glasgow does have some dry days!)

Adelaide Place

We're delighted to introduce Adelaide place as our Saturday brunch venue for GSX.


If this gorgeous parquet floor looks like it's begging for some swung steps and boogie beats, then you'd be right!


Expect awesome tunes, tea, coffee, cake and sandwiches! Just the kind of fuel you'll need to keep you going the full weekend.


Sloans Ballroom

We have the most amazing, historic venues for the Glasgow Swing Exchange, and our Sunday Tea Dance venue is no exception. Get ready, because we'll be dancing the afternoon away in Sloans Victorian Ballroom!


Sloans started life as a coffee house back in 1797. Soon after, a man named David Sloan bought the venue, known as the Arcade Café at the turn of the 20th Century, and renamed it the Sloans Arcade Café before transforming it into an opulent venue with a lounge bar, several dining rooms, a cocktail bar, an aquarium and the jewel in the crown - the Grand Ballroom - a stunning space featuring a magnificent vaulted ceiling, period marble fireplace and intricate stained-glass windows.

The Grade A Listed building's original features have all been lovingly restored including the ceramic tiled entrance, grand mahogany staircase, rich woodwork, rare acid-etched glass and ceilings heavily decorated with plaster mouldings with gilt edging and detail.



The entrance to Sloans is from Argylle Street where you'll first come into a historic courtyard (pictured below). Then when you enter the building, you'll be treated to the the impressive rooms and features mentioned above. Once you have climbed the mahogany staircase, you will enter the grand ballroom at the top where a fast floor, live swing band and homemade cakes await!
