Welcome to Buchanan Bridge Club

The Buchanan has been the home of bridge in Glasgow since 1932.
The club is in a 19th century listed building and yet has all the benefits of technology with computer-dealt boards, Bridgemates on all tables, etc.  Up to thirty-two tables in play can be accommodated over the three floors of the building.
The Buchanan Bridge Club is a fully licensed club with a bar.

Visitors to the Buchanan

Visitors to the club are very welcome, and our stand-by system means that they are guaranteed a game even if they do not come with a partner (not Saturdays). Visitors must be signed in by a member, but this does not have to be arranged in advance - just turn up on the night and a member will sign you in. Visitors may be signed in a total of six times in any club year before they are expected to join.

You may also apply for a ten week temporary membership that allows access to the cardrooms on the club nights. Use the Contact Us page to request information.
