The Glad Cafe is a not for profit music venue with a licensed cafe in the Shawlands area of southside Glasgow. It has something to offer people of any age or background in this diverse and vibrant local community.
The cafe serves high quality coffee from Dear Green Coffee Roasters and delicious cakes from Big Bear Bakery as well as a good selection of gluten free cakes from Wild Flours Bakery.
Since September 2018, we’ve been delighted to serve incredible vegetarian and vegan brunches from 9am-4pm made by the magnificent Hen of the Woods, the team behind the the brilliant Asian inspired menu at The Hug & Pint in the West End.
Our evening food comes courtesy of our old friends Babu Bombay Street Kitchen. From 5pm-9.30pm every night, they serve Indian street food. They deliver delicious authentic Indian cuisine without being traditional.
Our cafe and venue bars serve a growing selection of great tasting craft beers, including Williams Draft and Caesar Augustus, Brooklyn, Shandon Stout (and Sharps Orchard Cider!) on draft, and a fridge full of bottles and cans ranging from Drygate to Beavertown.
Our well equipped venue provides a welcome space in the southside for showcasing up and coming local musicians as well as internationally known acts. We feature indie, electronic, experimental, world and traditional musicians. The space has become known for its great acoustic and the quality of the programme which also includes film, drama, storytelling and philosophical talks. The exhibition space in the cafe also hosts a changing feast of visual delight curated by two of our volunteers, and this combined with the six monthly zine, the Glad Rag, adds to our on-going representation of southside creativity!
