Cowcaddens (Scots: Coocaddens, Scottish Gaelic: Coille Challtainn) is an area of the city of Glasgow, Scotland. It is virtually in the city centre and is bordered by the areas of Garnethill to the south and Townhead to the east.
The southern fringes of Cowcaddens have historically housed one of Glasgow's premier entertainment districts, with the Theatre Royal at the upper end of Hope Street, the massive Cineworld multi-storey cinema complex and the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall taking place at the top of West Nile Street. From 1957 to 2003, the headquarters of STV were located there - having since relocated to Pacific Quay. Two former theatres, the Royalty Theatre and the Glasgow Apollo (now occupied by the Cineworld complex) used to stand in the area.
