About BAaD

The perfect space to enjoy a wide variety of events... or simply grab a drink!

Barras Art and Design is a truly unique space in the heart of the East End of Glasgow just a stones throw from the City Centre. 

The space is a large atrium under which lives a large internal courtyard area, perfect for hosting a wide variety of events, an award winning restaurant & bar, a number of shops and studios, as well as Glasgow’s first shipping container street food yard The BackYard.

The Barras area is of hugely significant historical importance to the city of Glasgow and the idea of BAaD is to help celebrate this and encourage the people of Glasgow and Visitors to the city to spend time in the area. 

BAaD has quickly become one of the best places in the city to enjoy a wide variety of events, a space which truly has something for everyone markets every Sunday to gigs, weddings to exhibitions, family days and cinema events… truly something for everyone to enjoy in the East End of Glasgow.
