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-seven 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.

Bridge Classes

The Buchanan offers tuition at five levels -

  • Beginners
  • Intermediate 1
  • Intermediate 2
  • Refreshers
  • Advanced




Bridge is enjoyable at all levels - for beginners and experts alike. It's mentally stimulating and for many an activity for life.

The classes run on Thursday evenings at 7.00pm and last about three hours. The new session started on 5th September 2019 but you can still join. For full information including costs see Classes in the menu.

You can download an application form here (either for Beginners/Intermediate 1/Intermediate 2 or Refreshers/Advanced).
