King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut is situated in town on St Vincent Street, Glasgow, and it is a popular performance venue for upcoming musicians. It is particularly well known as the venue where Oasis launched their career, and other music legends such as Florence and The Machine, The Killers, My Chemical Romance, Radiohead, to name a few. King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut will always have a special place in my heart, as it’s where I first saw Isaac Gracie, one of my all-time favorite musicians, live for the first time since I discovered his music.
The venue is very grungy and down-to-earth, and it’s evident as soon as one enters the building that this is a venue that genuinely cares about supporting musicians in their attempts to pave out a music career. The interior design is rustic, featuring leather upholstery and large wooden tables, and brightly lit glass bottles filled with colorful drinks sit nestled above the bar top, the yellow light reflecting off the glasses. They also sell tasty meals until 8PM at night. This said, their opening times are sometimes flexible and determined by the gigs they host on that particular evening.
This venue is definitely a must for music lovers and for upcoming artists to enjoy the atmosphere that hosted to-be legends once upon a time. It is still one of the most popular music venues in Glasgow, to this very day.
