The ABC on Sauchiehall Street in the West End of Glasgow was once home to the first cinema ever to open in Scotland back in 1896. It has had many names over the years - The Hippodrome, The Ice Palace, Hengler’s Circus and ultimately ABC - but since its conversion in June 2005, it has become a live concert venue, and has rapidly turned into one of the favourite live music and club venues for the whole of Scotland.
There are two rooms at the O2 ABC – ABC1, with space for an audience of 1,250 and ABC2 which is a more intimate setting that can hold 350. All manner of household names on the local and international concert trail have played at the O2 ABC since its opening, and there is also a regular Friday night club, Festival, hosted by the resident DJ. On Saturdays, it time for the Love Music club in ABC1. The Polar Bar is on the second floor of the building and it welcomes different DJs on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
The O2 ABC is located near Charing Cross Station in the City Centre of Glasgow close to the West End. For visitors arriving by car there is 24-hour parking just one minute away on Elmbank Crescent. Full details about upcoming events at the O2 ABC are available on the venue’s website – www.o2abcglasgow.co.uk
