Danse Macabre is a long-running club and community in Glasgow, Scotland.

We play goth, italo, post-punk, disco, synthpop, new wave, a bit of 80s pop, and have a little too much love for the smoke machine button.

Since 2010, we have run our monthly flagship club night (currently moving to a new venue TBC in January 2022!) as well as a synth/italo night called Heartbreak Beat (in Bloc on Bath Street, Glasgow), put on goth bands from across the world, printed a local community goth zine, run aftershow clubs, and organised social events alternative folk in Glasgow. And we love it.

Danse Macabre is proudly independent and inclusive of all people*, with a strong LGBTQ+ contingent amongst our black-clad ranks, and support Shelter Scotland as our adopted charity – all requests must be accompanied by a donation into our charity tins.
