Two worlds have become one at Glasgow’s newest country bar with bull pit Maggie’s Rock ‘n’ Rodeo, where Glaswegians will be able to witness (and participate in, of course) a Cowboy Ceilidh every Friday. Scotland’s first-ever Cowboy ceilidh will take over The Hoedown saloon in the basement from October 20, promising the wildest night out, both Nashville AND Scotland style.
Maggie May’s is located on Trongate, and has just been freshly spruced up due to a £500,000 refurbishment and rebranding as Maggie’s Rock ‘n’ Rodeo. The venue boasts its own bull pit and “Hoedown” late-night venue, where the Cowboy Ceilidh will be taking place. The owners took inspiration from Nashville’s finest dive bars, with honky tonks and shows like ‘Yellowstone’. So, Maggie’s is going all things country as it has named itself “The Home of Good Times”.
During the Cowboy Ceilidh, dancers can expect to be led by the Glasgow line dancing queen herself, Maggie Stevenson, while accompanied by a live band, The Jaybees at the saloon basement bar. Tickets for The Cowboy Ceilidh cost £8 for entry and go on sale on Tuesday, October 3. For those who cannot hold their excitement, guests can book their spot on the Maggie’s Rock ‘n’ Rodeo website.
Owner Oli Norman said: “The response to Maggie’s Rock ‘n’ Rodeo has been wild and we’re buzzing now to launch the first in our event series – the COWBOY CEILIDH. It’s led by an amazing line dancer called none other than Maggie and is going to be a lot of fun.”
“5,000 folk came down to party with us during our soft launch and on TikTok, our videos are clocking up hundreds of thousands of views – we can see Glasgow’s definitely ready to rodeo.”
