Hogmanay 2022: The best venues in Glasgow hosting New Years Eve parties this year

Hogmanay is back in a big way this year. Don’t get caught out watching Jools Holland in the house this New Year’s Eve, have a look at some of the venues hosting parties this year.

Hogmanay is fast approaching, and it’s the first time in three years that we can celebrate the turning of the year with friends properly - so don’t get caught out by having no plans. Here we share some of the best Hogmanay events we’ve found in and around Glasgow.

It’d be a shame if for the first time since the pandemic started, when you can finally get out and do things, you get stuck in on New Years watching Jools Holland. So have a look below at some of the finest venues in the city opening their doors to let Glaswegians bring in the new year.

If you’d rather spend Hogmanay in the house, that’s entirely understandable, but stick around until the end of the list to see how you can bring New Years home to you.

Lebowskis

Lebowskis - another restaurant owned by Mr Suttle.

Popular Finnieston pub, Lebowskis, will be hosting a throwback disco night with their resident DJ - playing all the biggest old school disco anthems from the 70s right through till the 2000s. They’ve got a giant disco ball to hang up, and the organisers promise that the venue will be decorated to the nines.

They also have a special disco cocktail menu with vibrant and exciting flavours to suit the theme. Dressing up is heavily encouraged - with organisers sharing some inspo. Think flares, sequins, and bright colours. Tickets will be avaliable to book soon, so keep an eye on their social media.

Raddisson RED SkyBar

The Skybar at the Radisson Red on Tunnel Street offers "fabulous views" and deserves "top marks for the view alone".

There’s something to be said about taking in the New Year from a rooftop bar, and getting a panoramic view of the city. Plus you’ll get a breathtaking view of all the fireworks as the clock strikes midnight.

Electric Dreams’ New Years Eve party aims to do exactly that. Michael Kilkie and Jon Mancini will host the party from 8pm until 1am. Package deals are available, including: A standard bedroom with breakfast for two, two arrival drinks, and two party tickets for £328.90.

On New Years Day, Jon and Mike will host another ‘Guilty Pleasures Party at the SKYbar from 4pm until 10pm. You can get party tickets for £27.50, or stay overnight for £218.90.

If you’re not a fan of all the glitz and glamour, Johnny Mac and the Faithful are taking over the Oui Bar downstairs at the Radisson RED running on New Year, also from 8pm to 1am.

The band have just returned from touring with Rod Stewart - having just released their new single ‘Me Oh My’. Tickets are selling quickly for the party which is priced at just £27.50 - you can find tickets here while they last.
