Pavilion Theatre Glasgow

The Pavilion Theatre is now the only privately run theatre in Scotland and one of a few unsubsidised independent theatres left in Britain outside London.

The theatre is at the top of Renfield St, towards the northern end of the city centre. It is a short walk from Cowcaddens and Buchanan Street Subway stations, and is served directly be numerous bus routes.

Many of the leading music hall artistes of the early 20th century appeared at the Pavilion, including Marie Lloyd, Little Tich, Harry Lauder, Sarah Bernhardt and a then unknown Charlie Chaplin.

The theatre was designed by Bertie Crewe for Thomas Barrasford, and was regarded as luxurious for its time.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Argyll Hotel for a theatre break or if you are local please join us for a Pre-Theatre Menu.
