“ Mitchell Street, Glasgow. On Fridays. Info: 0141 204 1000 „
Hmmm, just read the other opinion on this one, and though I thought I'd just leave a comment, I thought I'd just write my own. I have a slightly biased opinion of the Tunnel, it's the place I first went when I got into the dance scene, and the place where I met my girlfriend (four years on, we still go back to "re-live" the night!) I don't know whether things have changed dramatically in the six or seven months it's been since I was there, but I wouldn't have called the music charty like in the other opinion. Yes, it's a bit lighter than the Saturday nights, but it's definately not charty. Yes, I've heard things like Dj Jean, The Launch, Dj Jurgen - Better Off Alone, and Coco vs Fragma there, but it's all been while the tunes were on the Promo circuit, and had some appeal to them to the more refined clubber - the ones who, when a tune hits the chart, immediately call it duff. The drinks on an ordinary night are in the £2-3 area, but you can normally get "all drinks £1" before midnight happening. Just go up, by 6 vodka and red bulls, leave them on the little shelf in front of the Dj booth - and you're sorted. The thing that I seem to always recall about the Tunnel is the moment you open the big brass doors, and the smell and bass just flows over you. If you have any kind of artisitic nature, it's a really cool feeling. And, when you get all finished, just pop upstairs and play the Playstations for a while. So, in summary, the Friday nights aren't as cheesy as the other opinion made them out to be, they're just not in the Hard House genre that everyone seems to be jumping towards right now. I think it's good to separate the Friday and the Saturday nights slightly. Not enough to have a huge swing, but enough to make it a change. Still wondering about this "puddies" bit. It IS "pluggies" and it refers t o the machine, because you spend the whole night plugging your money into it. C.ya Recess www.recess.co.uk
On entering 'The Tunnel' in Glasgow the firt thing that's noticable is the security, you are completely searched and are under constant observation, which although it may seem daunting, you can be assured that your safe if it is your first night out in Glasgow. The atmosphere is very lively and there is a good mix of student and locals. The music is mostly charty but the DJs are know what they are doing. The chill out room feature games consoles and gamblers or 'puddys' as they are called in Scotland. It's a good night out but there are better clubs to go to in Glasgow and the drinks could be cheaper.
