A multifunctional hub for a variety of corporate, private and artistic events
Hosting a myriad of Glasgow’s dynamic and forward thinking events, Drygate works closely with its creative neighbours, encouraging both local and international collaborations.
We offer a raw and versatile experience in the Beer Hall and Events Space; A multifunctional hub for a variety of corporate, public and artistic events, equipped with a private bar, stage, projection screen, PA and a diverse range of lighting. Our Beer Hall can be hired in conjunction with the Events Space for receptions and parties or alternatively as a stand-alone area for smaller events or meetings, complete with AV equipment and Bavarian-style seating.
Exposed brick, geometric tilework and hand painted signage establish an industrial style space that reflects the building’s rich history, while the awe-inspiring artwork adorning the walls pays tribute to local talent at Glasgow School of Art.
Both spaces are served by the Beer Hall Kitchen and equipped with a Drygate Bar. You can also take full advantage of the famous Glasgow weather by stepping out onto our Terrace - the best Beer Garden on the West Coast.
The Drygate philosophy is Open Doors: Open Minds. Contact our events team to design and deliver your dream happenings under our iconic Seven Peaks.
85 Drygate was built in 1964, originally as a box assembly and screen printing factory for Clark Stephen, using brick, steel & concrete. The design concentrates on existing eccentricities of the building, bearing traces of all its previous incarnations: box factory, print works, bottling plant and storage unit. The original structure and details of the building have been preserved including the restoration of the original Seven Peaks of the sawtooth roof, exposed brick walls displayed behind newly installed panes of glass and the preservation of paint marks on the concrete floor, celebrating traces of the building’s functional heritage.
