6 Hedkandi, it doesn’t get better than this. The legendary Red Sky Bar at the Radisson are pulling the summer of dreams together and this is an absolute highlight. Mark Doyle is joined by Soraya Vivian and Marc Rowell and Emma F on the sax and a full on Hedkandi production. Sensational sounds at Glasgow’s phenomenal and utterly unique rooftop bar. If I were you, I’d be booking a room: £160 gets you TWO tickets, bed and breakfast in a lush room, special march and a cocktail. Solo tickets are £25. Follow Radisson Red Sky Bar on the insta – @redskybar – to be sure you don’t miss out on stonking nights. For more info go to www.radissonhotels.com/en-us/hotels/radisson-red-glasgow
