The Cathouse is long-established alternative music nightclub on Union Street in Glasgow. As well as regular weekly club nights, including the under 18 'Voodoo', it also hosts live gigs, with globally successful, mainstream bands such as Oasis, Pearl Jam and Fall Out Boy having played there in their fledgling years. The club has also been host to such acts as Dragonforce, Lordi, Zebrahead, SOiL and Mr Bungle.

The club began in 1990 in the Hollywood Studios building (now demolished) in Brown St and moved to Union St in 1995, and forms part of Cathouse Promotions Limited (CPL) who also own or lease a number of other Glasgow clubs and bars:

The Union St property was leased until 2005, but has now been purchased by CPL, and was thoroughly refurbished with a relaunch party at the end of October 2005, and the Cathouse celebrated its 18th birthday in November 2008, with a weekend of drink promotions and other features such as bands and pole-dancers.
