Sloans is a Central Glasgow bar with a penchant for celebration, so of course, any sign of a heatwave, and these guys throw a party - a BBQ party. With their quaint location on a lane, just off Buchanan Street, the BBQs here feel more like a family affair, despite being in the middle of the city. One of the loveliest bars with BBQs in Glasgow.
The sun doesn't need to shine for it to be BBQ weather at Meat. The City Centre cocktail bar and restaurant have their very own smoker pit ovens where they slow cook tender cuts for twelve hours, so make them melt-in-your-mouth good. Pulled-pork shoulder, ginger-rubbed smokey pork, Kansas style ribs; it's enough to make us want one of their rib-infused rums. Almost.
Lebowskis is bar on Argyle Street, famous for three things. Incredible cocktails, super-sized burgers, and mighty banter. Combine those with a hot day and you have yourself one fun BBQ bar in Glasgow. These guys don't light the barbie every week, but when they do, it's pretty dang awesome, and one heck of an excuse to party.
Glasgow club, bar and terrace, The Sanctuary is famous for its epic beer garden in the West End. But better than the sun, the cocktails and the outdoor tvs, is the incredible barbecue courtesy of Texan foodies, Smoak. Smoak dish up all manner of pulled pork, braised beef and chargrilled chicken to hungry punters in the West End beer garden. If you're looking for some Southern Soul from your next BBQ, Sanctuary is the place to go.
Smoak also flaunts their tasty Texan wares at Variety Bar on Sauchiehall Street. This time you don't have to wait for the sun to come out, as Variety's BBQ can we eaten indoors. With the same incredible pulled pork and briskets on bread, this is one tasty BBQ in Glasgow, and the perfect precursor for your night out in the City Centre.
Perhaps one of the most glorious spots to sit in Glasgow on a sunny day, Inn Deep is a bar with a bbq in a rather picturesque location. Nestled into the bank of the Kelvin river, the beer garden at Inn Deep is simply gorgeous, add in some ice-cold craft and piping hot meat and you have yourself something of stellar combination at this West End pub.
Record Faktory is a very fun bar with a BBQ in Glasgow's. With a big, open yard for a beer garden, this West End bar is the perfect place for a day to night summer party. The BBQ keeps blazing all weekend, with a tasty selection of fare on sunny days 'til 8pm. Be sure to get down early if it's a scorcher, this place gets packed.
Oran Mor is a super-sized West End bar that's partial to a summer time BBQ. With the barbie lighting on sunny days, you can enjoy a feast and watch the world go by in the Byre's Road beer garden. On special occasions, this Glasgow BBQ bar even pulls out a spit roast. Form an orderly queue folks.
The Ark has one of the sunniest beer gardens in Glasgow, so these guys sure know how to make the most of it when the sun comes out. The BBQs at this fun Merchant City pub are sporadic, but well worth catching on dry day. Fuss-free but delicious, expect BBQ staples like burgers and sausages. With tonnes of picnic benches, there's plenty of space for al fresco eating at this cool Glasgow BBQ bar.
The Finnieston does great food all year round, but when the sun comes out, they go one better and take it outside. The BBQ in the beer garden of this Argyle Street bar is incredible. Not just your usual charred bangers and burgers, these guys dish up such delights as octopus, straight off the barbie. Fishy Fridays are the night to head down and with live music every week - and some of the best cocktails in town - this is one of the tastiest bars with BBQs in Glasgow.
