Double the fun for Skye DJ


DJ Ali MacIssac has just opened two venues in Glasgow. Both situated on Sauchiehall St, the first is the former SYMBØL nightclub, which he has opened in partnership with Daniel Gilbertson. This will now be known as Dannsa, the Gaelic word for dance. This is a multifunctional events and arts space with a capacity of 200 which already has a healthy calendar of events lined up including bands and DJ’s.

The second unit is the Brunswick Cellars which has been gone through a refurbishment to bring it back to its former glory, complete with the original fish tank.

Operations Manager, Lee Stewart told DRAM, “It’s a late-night bar. We have a full club sound system and lighting but it’s still a place where you can chill out, have a drink, and just speak to your mates.

“Ali fell in love with this venue when he first moved to Glasgow from Skye in the 90s, so that’s why he picked it and felt he had to bring back the Brunswick Cellars name. It has the same basic layout, but everything has been ripped out and redone.

“It’s now just getting the name out there, that’s the key. The spaces look and sound fantastic and we are hoping they will both work hand in hand.”
