Formerly a church, this hidden beauty stands tall and proud as one of Glasgow’s most unique and magical venues. With a collection of incredible spaces including a traditional public bar, expansive beer garden, 40-seat dining room and a large function and events space, there is something for everyone.
One of many converted churches around Glasgow (see also Oran Mor), Cottiers inhabits the imposing, neo-gothic former Dowanhill Parish Church at the top of Hyndland Street, and has done since 1992. The theatre seats 206 people, and presents a regular and diverse programme of independent and community theatre productions, as well as the odd gig and comedy show, against an impressive backdrop of stained glass windows and ornate timberwork. Since 2013 Cottiers has also been presenting shows in the nearby Webster’s Theatre, a pop-up performance space based in the old Lansdowne Parish Church by Kelvin Bridge.
