Polo Lounge is one of the most racist gay clubs known to the gay community. I am Black American living in Glasgow with my Spaniard husband and I have never felt such racism since my existence. My husband and I have travelled extensively all over world and Polo Lounges racism towards minorities is horrendous. If you are visiting Glasgow area for business or pleasure or have recently resided in Glasgow area - PLEASE BOYCOTT and AVOID THIS PLACE. On 3rd of March, 2012, a small group of us from Spain and Miami attempted to enter Polo Lounge and were refused entry by the guards stating that the club was overcrowded. Nonetheless, while standing shocked outside we witnessed presumed NATIVES entering without queries or hesitations. Despite the viewing of this, we ignored and decided to celebrate our friends birthday at another club. Exactly a week later, my spouse and I arrived at Polo Lounge again by cab and were refused entry once more. The security asked my Spaniard spouse, Is this the first time here? Nevertheless, before responding to his query, we were immediately refused entry once again. I asked the guard whats the reason for refusal and his response was, We dont know you so move away cause you are blocking the entry. My spouse and I stood there astonished while watching other NATIVES entering freely. It was so apparent that it was owing to our races why our entry was refused once more. In these times where LGBT communities have struggled tremendously for our rights I would never believe that racism existed so prominent in our own community. I strongly URGE gay foreigners who are visiting and living in Glasgow area to avoid this place. Presently, I am the process of making a report with the LGBT community in UK and USA.

Always have a great laugh in The Lounge-music downstairs is cheesy pop, upstairs more chart and dance. Think the staff are brilliant for how busy it always is.

Busy bar/ club. Downstairs is a bit of a buzy maze. Gets really busy, beer is over priced and not that great a drink, staff can be rude at times. Now with the smoking ban it's a bit of a struggle getting back in after a ciggie break!

Music downstairs is very cheesy, but typical for gay club of it's sort.

Saying that, I've had a couple of great nights there when visiting the city.
