General Policy

Inclusivity

Danse Macabre is and always will be a clubnight for the broad goth and alternative community, but we wholeheartedly welcome anyone who just wants to come and have a good time with us.

We are fiercely inclusive of all sexes, genders, sexualities, races, ages, disabilities, and cultures. We will not now or ever permit abusive behaviour or individuals at our events. All our events are explicitly LGBTQ+ safe spaces, if this is a problem then you are in the wrong scene.

Our crowd are beautiful. We have some who are 18 and some in their 60s. Some queer and some not. Some who dance all night and some who just want to sit with their friends and enjoy the ambience.

Anyone who feels uncomfortable, harassed, or in danger, should immediately come to the DJ booth, and a member of venue staff or security will be called if required.

Accessibility

Danse Macabre is currently moving to a new venue TBC in January 2022. The venue will be accessible from street level, with seating, and gender-neutral toilets. There is a step inside but a ramp is available.

We try to keep the music at a reasonable level, but we or the bar can provide earplugs on request. Lighting is low, usually in magenta/blue.

Heartbreak Beat is currently based in BLOC+ in Glasgow. The entire bar is a basement venue, accessible only by stairs – those who need assistance in accessing are advised to contact the venue directly and speak to door staff on the night.

There are two gender neutral toilets and plenty of seating around the venue.

We try to keep the music at a reasonable level, but we or the bar can provide earplugs on request. There is some limited use of a smoke machine. Lighting is lower than average but not dim, throughout the whole venue.

Anyone who wishes to get in touch with any questions can do so via the Contact Us page, or by messaging us on Facebook.
