Bars in Southside Glasgow

Glasgow's Southside is often overlooked but with up and coming areas like Shawlands and Pollockshaws carving their own niche in Glasgow nightlife, there are a few gems south of the Clyde not to be missed. The sprawling suburbs have a vibe all of their own, with pretty parks, distinctive architecture, a host of great characters and of course, a few cracking bars and pubs too. 


Sorry, the places listed below don't have online bookings available, but we hope you still find this list useful for your night out!


Buddy's BBQ & Burgers

5 user reviews 4

For a hearty smattering of Southern soul food and house-smoked favourites, Buddy's is your man. Combine their infamous menu with Glasgow's best selection of craft beers and a 1950s roadside diner theme - and you've got yourself a little slice of Americana culture, right in Glasgow's Southside.

The Glad Cafe

2 user reviews 5

Serving up freshly prepared, seasonal dishes by day, and transforming into a live music and arts space come nightfall, The Glad Cafe is something of a Southside institution. Choose from a hearty selection of tipples, and enjoy something from their heady roster of entertainment throughout the week. 

The McMillan

Expect a mighty menu of top quality seafood and meat dishes from this ever so charming spot on Pollockshaws Road. The McMillian Southside Bar & Chop House welcomes punters throughout the day to tuck into one of the lighter lunchtime bites or a heartier choice in the evening - all washed down with one of their artfully prepared cocktails, or something from their selection of Scottish and international bottled craft beers. 

The Bungo

A cracking Southside local on the Nithesdale Road, The Bungo looks as cool as a city bar, but boasts friendly neighbourhood vibes. One of the most popular venues for a Glasgow night out south of the Clyde, the bar and restaurant serves up tasty grub and great cocktails. With weekly quizzes and live music, along with regular comedy and improv nights, there's plenty to keep punters entertained.
