SWG3 / Via

Every year, Club Noir put on an alternative event for Valentine's Day and this year, it is no different. On the 11th of February at SWG3 in the West End, Club Noir are putting on a night that includes a variety of acts from aerial acts to fire perfomers. The night will be hosted by the infamous Glasgow comedian 'The Wee Man' along with music from multiple DJs. There is even a dress code which is listed on the event page making that clear that trainers and jeans are not acceptable!

Note: This event is for ages 18+ only

£50 - Escape Room Glasgow

Escape Glasgow / Via

This will test your trust in each other and maybe will let you get to know your other half a bit better as you are challenged with various puzzles to escape a puzzle room. Escape Glasgow is located on Wellington Street in the centre of town. If you use the student discount code "STU49" when booking it will reduce the cost by £17 making the total £49 for both of you.

Money is No Worry - Loch Lomond Seaplanes Flight

Cameron House / Via

If you don't have to worry about a budget, it's unlikely you are having to worry about getting a cheeky student discount then. In that case, if you travel a little bit north of the city to the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, you'll come across a floating plane. The 40 minute flight will cost you £174 for two but is said to be well worth it.
