The original Barrowland Ballroom opened in 1934 in a mercantile area east of Glasgow’s city centre and was built by “Barras Queen” Maggie McIver.
The building was largely destroyed by fire in 1958, leading to a complete rebuild. The rebuilt ballroom opened on Christmas Eve 1960.

In more recent years, the Ballroom has become a major concert venue with a capacity of around 1950 people, known for its acoustics and its sprung dance floor.

Simple Minds filmed the video for their 1983 hit single, “Waterfront” at Ballroom. Bowie, Biffy Clyro, Oasis, U2, The Stranglers, The Clash, The Smiths, Big Country, Muse, Foo Fighters, Franz Ferdinand, Texas, Snow Patrol, SLF, The Vatersay Boys and many other acts too have played the Ballroom.
