Iconic venue making history

King Tut’s is an integral part of Glasgow’s thriving grassroots music scene as well as bringing the most exciting new musical talent to the city.

Radio 1 named it the ‘UK’s Best Live Venue’ three years in a row and King Tut’s was voted number 7 in New York Magazine’s ‘Follow Your Bliss List’ – a list of fifty euphoria-inducing destinations to visit before you die (above climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and Swimming with Hippos in Botswana!)

As well as the upstairs gig room, the King Tut's basement bar serves up a wide variety of drinks including our very own King Tut's Lager!

The bar is open from 6pm Monday to Friday when shows are on. On Saturdays we are open from 12pm for our Open Mic and on Sundays we open from 2pm for the Sunday Song Club

King Tut's venue

300 capacity

Playing a gig at this 300 capacity venue has become a seminal point in the career of an impressive array of artists leading NME to name King Tut’s ‘Britain’s Best Small Venue’ in 2011, and ‘quite possibly the finest small venue in the world’ in 2007.
