You can turn anything into a music venue these days, as the Ferry in Glasgow amply demonstrates. This restored 1950s passenger ferry on the north bank of the Clyde delivers quality entertainment, specializing in dinner, dancing, and joyful tribute nights.
The Ferry’s informal vibe and hearty menus make it ideal for a family outing as it serves up delicious meals in a totally relaxed atmosphere, including burger and sides or Sunday lunch. Of course, the entertainment is the Ferry’s main draw, and on this front it doesn’t disappoint either. Its tribute nights are as varied as they are nostalgic, as musicians hark back to artists such as ABBA, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Tina Turner, and Robbie Williams. Occasionally, The Ferry even gets hold of the real thing - ska legends Bad Manners are just one of the bands to have played The Ferry.
As you might be able to guess by the shows they put on, a trip to The Ferry is ideal for slightly older crowds who are just after a drink and a dance. The Ferry shows that you don’t need to be cutting edge to be a great venue; sometimes you can just offer honest-to-goodness fun.
