30 reviews of King Tuts Wah Wah Hut in English
Had a great first time experience with a few friends, having arrived early for a great up and coming band's gig, had a good meal and some drinks, all reasonably priced. The bartender even made a drink that wasn't on the menu at my request, and all staff were very friendly and polite.
The gig was wonderful, as with any crowded venue if you want a good view, get there early. Unlike many bigger venues, there never seemed to be any problems with the sound and overall it was just a great atmosphere.
Even if you can't find a band you already know playing there, pick one at random and they're likely to be pretty good, judging by artists they've hosted in the past. Even if they aren't you'll enjoy the place.
Went to my first gig here recently, wow is all I can say. Great pub with their own beer, small but perfect venue thro the back. Bar inside venue as well as some seating (which is handy for us oldies). Love the size of the place as you get up close and personal with the band and the sound. Beer was a good price or a venue too.
Hi just got on to this site as i was looking up orginal name of this pub in 70s . Yes thats how long ago anyway in those days it was called saints and sinners and it was kind of bikers and chicks pub. It used to be decked out in chrome with red leather booth seats quite cool actually At the back where the bands play now there used to be a disco and sometimes, a band or two does any one else remember its days as saints and sinners.
Good wee chill out sesh. Good music, not bad prices. There’s always gigs on, but it’s a great hang out even if you’re not going upstairs for the live act. It’s always friendly, and dedicates itself to being down to earth. Love it!
Saw jace Everett tonight and I must say I feel sorry for such an amazing artist to have to endure the horrific scene that was King Tuts Wah Wah Hut. They call it "Wah Wah" because by the end of the night you will be crying like a baby for making such a stupid mistake by going there. The bar is full of junkies and tramps, and the upstairs is way too small and crouded. I'm suprised people actually choose to go to such a low buget basement shit-hole. I guess Glasgow needs somewhere to store the low lifes of Scotland so the rest of us can enjoy gigs without having sweaty middle-aged perverts staggering into everyone trying to get to the bar with their coppers. People of Glasgow, You have been warned.
King Tuts is the place to go to for an intimate gig. When I say intimate I mean that you can almost touch the band that you are there to see. The stage is low which adds to this. I went to see the 'tossers’ and 'the wakes’ here and it was awesome!! Dont let the look of the outside fool you. Also this is where 'oasis’ were discovered if your a fan!!
Probably Scotland’s best known small(er) gig venue - King Tuts is a genuine institution and whilst, in the eyes of many, it has lost its edge with mainstream acceptance, it still is a right of passage to local and touring bands alike.
I HUGE recommendation to any one visiting Tut’s for a gig for the first time is to get there super early, especially if its sold out (which they often are). There is a near nil stage view opportunity to anyone forced to hang to the right hand side of the stage.
Top class venue. It’s perfect for a few drinks and perfect as a venue. I have seen two bands here and both times, the atmosphere has been electric. I do feel the easy access to the downstairs pub makes it easy for people to shun support acts but choice is better.
Also, do not bother with the dukebox as people seem to pay for an entire day on there. You will pay to hear a song and will have no chance of hearing it.
hands down, the best live music venue in glasgow. the downstairs bar is a welcome haven when faced with mediocre support acts. top-notch sound, and an intimate setting - perfect for getting sweated on by your favourite band (before they get too famous).
Another concert venue in glasgow . Glasgow has many , this one is good for the sound and raido one have even commented on how good this place is for music. . this one is really small so it’s nice , for real fans ! great little venue and it has a bar for your drinks . Location can be a little hard to find but it is central glasgow so if you do not know the area well you may need a map or a taxi.
Nice Public Bar Downstairs. Was formerly known as “Saints & Sinners” in the 1970’s and regenerated to its present state and “High” Profile as a “Live” Music Venue in the 80’s. The last time I actually attended one of the Shows was about 10 years ago when “Mike Peters”, of The Alarm did a Solo Gig. The Sound was excellent and I managed to get a space facing the Stage Area so could see + hear everything clearly despite the packed Room.
I am now a Pensioner but popped in for a Pint recently, during the Day. The Bar Staff were very Friendly and I had a chat with some of the Youngsters who were in. I didn’t feel out of place being there but I don’t think I would try it at Night. Suspect it might still be Very Good.
Worth a Visit, if you’re in the right age group.
One of Glasgow’s best venues that matches anything London has to offer. King Tut’s is where you see bands before they blow up. At only about 300 capacity, it’s a nice intimate club, but when it’s sold out, it’s packed to the gills. Still, regardless of how many people are there, the sound is amazing whether you’re in front of the speakers or outside the main room.
The only drawback to this place is that if it is really crowded the only place you’ll have a good view from is either right in front of the stage or right next to the soundboard (and yeah, the soundboard takes up loads of space, but for a good reason). There’s limited seating in the main room, which is good for the times when you care more about sitting than seeing, or works as a nice means to see over taller people’s heads.
There’s also a decent though small bar downstairs from the live room, perfect for when you’re not ready to go home after a gig.
Been to see two or three band sin this venue and not been disappointed. Bar at the front is quite small and a pool table is squeezed into a corner at the back. The reason most people go to King Tuts is because of the music. The doors at the rear are opened and you go up a small flight of stairs to the stage area. To the left is there is another small bar area and to the right is the small stage where bands perform. It is really intimate and not what you would call nicely decorated it has that wee club feel that puts everyone in the room in the front room. You have to have the right band in the place but it also has a reputation of breaking new bands onto the music scene
Reminds me on one in London, when I was there, and then I was walking about in Glasgow with mates, and I just gazed and SAW that King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, I screamed, and said yes, oohh, lala, wah wah hut, and told them all to go in there, and I have tried it, and I lush it….
So we all went in for the first time, well second time for me…! and they all have enjoyed it and they said it is a brilliant place to eat. bit expensive but our stomaches have filled up and it was well worth the treat and the services are excellent.
It offers a great variety of choices on the menu…
King Tut’s is pretty famous in Glasgow for introducing new bands and singers.I’ve been to quite a few gigs here,one of which was Kate Nash.The place itself is pretty small and cramped so if that’s something you don’t like then King Tut’s probably isn’t for you.The decor isn’t something to rave about either…..it’s quite dark and dingey which I suppose could put some people off.Drinks however are very cheap as are tickets for gigs.The atmosphere is also really good and makes the night really enjoyable.
This is Glasgow’s number 1 small music venue. Out front is the bar and in the back the venue itself. It can’t be said to be the cleanest or best maintained venue in the world, but it pulls off the slightly run down rock look well. They get a huge variety of bands through their doors so you have to be careful that it is something that you will like and just because you liked it one night, you may hate it another. The sound production is however always impeccable and they do tend to think carefully about the support act so usually if you like the headliner it is worth catching the support acts.
