A cultural centre and meeting place in the heart of Glasgow's West End, inside Oran Mor are two bars, two restaurants, a nightclub and stunning private event space available for hire in this converted church, formerly Kelvinside Parish Church. Refurbishment began back in 2002 and Oran Mor opened its doors in June 2004. Since then it has introduced a varying programme of events including new musical talents, comedy nights, a regular open mic session, occasional theatre performances and, of course, the hugely successful A Play, A Pie and A Pint series. Elsehwere, the Brasserie Restaurant uses Scottish produce wherever possible, freshly prepared by an in-house team of chefs, and bar meals are also served in the Whisky and Victorian Bars, incorporating the Conservatory.
