Being the only nightclub in town has allowed the Fiddler's to become extremely popular. It's 2am license is the only one locally, so most people leave pubs such as McCabe's before the final entry time of 12:30am.
Don't go expecting a nightclub to rival the Metro in Saltcoats or any of the major clubs in Glasgow. It is a small club, smaller than most of the clubs in the town. The entry prices now seem quite steep when you realise how small the club is, and five pounds or more entry on a Saturday night after 11:45pm is quite hard to swallow.
The bouncers are extremely strict about the "no drinking on the dance floor" rule, which although a sensible rule is taken to extreme proportions. They allow crazy folk to jump about like idiots bashing into people without blinking an eye, but as soon as you take a drink onto the dance floor they pounce on you and tell you to take your drink to the side.
The Fiddler's is most fun if there is a group of you, and well, if you're drunk. Going to Fiddler's sober is a strange experience, as you suddenly see everything in a whole new perspective. The place loses its appeal when you're sober, as you then realise how bad it actually is. If you're there with your mates, and have had a (fair) bit to drink though, you can have a great time.
The Fiddler's is okay for a laugh, but isn't even close to being in the same league as the major clubs.
