Gay-friendly is an understatement, as the night attracts a large, loyal crowd of queers, bisexuals and those who just don't know (or just don't care)
Glasgow's gay scene can seem frustratingly small at times, the choice between clubs akin to choosing the least painful method of self-harm. One of the positive things about this is that great mixed nights are born out of this frustration, and Death Disco more than deserves to stand alongside Optimo and Utter Gutter as a gay-friendly night that delivers a real alternative. In fact gay-friendly is an understatement, as the night attracts a large, loyal crowd of queers, bisexuals and those who just don't know (or just don't care). It's a young and beautiful crowd, but refreshingly friendly – you'll be hard pressed not to speak to plenty of strangers during the night, and you'll probably end up dancing with some of them too. The night attracts stellar DJs who keep the wonderfully cavernous rooms of The Arches moving with unpredictable sets that defy categorisation (much like Death Disco itself). It's not cheap, but regular door offers and brilliant bar service make up for this, and you'll have so much fun that you'll be increasing that overdraft in order to go back next month.
