IT WOULDN'T be a freezing Sunday night in Glasgow without a queue stretching halfway up West Regent Street.

Primped and preened glamour girls and rugby society lads clamber out of taxis by the dozen seemingly oblivious to – or simply ignoring – the rest of the world's cries that it's Scotland and this is January and you should not really be wearing that.

This is the scene outside the evergreen Disco Badger, Bamboo's Sunday free-for-all which shows no sign of slowing down even as the club celebrates its 10th birthday.

As temperatures dipped below freezing on one of the quietest weekends of the year, as pretty much every other watering hole in the city centre brought the shutters down, Bamboo was heaving, stowed, full to the rafters.

Drinks at £1 help of course, but a fiercely popular chart and R&B orientated soundtrack combined with a kinetic, packed dancefloor and the uniquely teenage kick of being able to stay out until 3am with few consequences on Monday other than a bit of a sore head make this one of the most successful Sunday nights ever witnessed around these parts.

Wednesdays are also legendary, with perennial favourite DJ Toast cranking out the indie and pop tunes, whilst on Popcorn Tuesdays Ross McMillan spins the latest in house and uptempo electronica.

With Bamboo's decade anniversary celebrations well underway, expect a frantic few months of guest DJs, 4am finishes and more than a few hangovers.
