A Fabulous Site in Glasgow's West End

A church conversion containing a theatre, bar, restaurant and wedding venue, surrounded by a garden with stone terraces for eating outside in the summer.


Welcome to Cottiers  A Genius of a Place in the West End of Glasgow

Once a church, now a concert venue established 25 years ago in architect William Leiper’s acoustically refined 1865 hammer beam interior.

Cottiers is a friendly place, community loved and community owned with internationally important stained glass and decoration by Daniel Cottier.

Cottiers contains a theatre and bar with outside stone flagged beer garden and exclusive Leiper’s Attic restaurant upstairs. It makes an enchanting and romantic wedding venue, a famous landmark in Glasgow’s West End.


Cottiers offers a wide variety of single malts and beers. We offer a large selection of international craft beer, and more specifically, the best beers.

Our restaurant, Leiper’s Attic, showcases Scotland’s larder, specialising in Wild Fish, Game and Dry Aged Beef, honed for seasonality.

Cottiers is a great acoustic space for different musical genres where artists and audience make an intimate connection. Renowned as a theatre setting for a serious play but adaptable for charity events or graduation balls.

With an imposing exterior and magical interior, our restored church is one of the most enchanting venues in Glasgow.  If you want your wedding to have a flair of individuality, why not tie the knot under our spectacular rose window?
