With a proud and diverse history of brewery excellent alcoholic drinks, Glasgow welcomes its first brewpub in the form of the Shilling Brewing Company. Based on West George Street, the bar itself is beautifully decorated, with exposed brick and large metal pipes giving the venue a distinctive industrial vibe. Inviting guests to try some of their carefully crafted beers, the team of brewers hope to highlight a number of previously ignored flavour combinations, as well as stressing the taste value of drinking beers that have been freshly brewed only a few feet away from where they are consumed. 

Republic Bier Halle

A cracking bar in Glasgow City Centre, Republic Bier Hall doesn't look a whole lot from the street. But descend the staircase to this basement hideaway and you'll find yourself in the middle of a buzzing beerhall that's jammers every night of the week. Great eats and an extensive list of beers, you'll be swigging on steins 'til they kick you out.

After it took the place of the beloved Captain's Rest, Munro's was always going to be a tough sell. But with gastro goodies from the kitchen and great craft brews from the bar, Glaswegians have been warming to Munro's since the day it opened. A cosy hang out with stylish, yet rustic decor, a chilled out feel and a great pint, Munro's is a one Glasgow bar that's fast becoming local favourite. 

Boteco Do Brasil

Its Mardi Gras every day at Boteco Do Brasil. If you're looking to make some new friends and bust some new moves, then head down to one of Glasgow's best bars and join the party. Packed with Latin flavours, from the food to the music, feel some South American sun on your skin as you down some fabulous exotic drinks and enjoy a Glasgow night out with a difference.

This sprawling venue just exudes Scottish charm, there's good reason The Ubiquitious Chip has pride of place on many a Glasgow bar crawl. From the epic banter and great music, to the extensive selection of eats and drinks, this Ashton Lane bar has a whole lot of heart and its earned itself a special place in ours. 

Hillhead Bookclub

Cocktails? They've got it. Ping Pong? They've got it. Sensational surroundings? Check. Good eats, and great tunes? Done and most definitely done. There are so many reasons why we love this bar, but it comes down to one thing; the vibe. Whether it's the food or the drinks, the surroundings or the service, Hillhead Bookclub have nailed it, and we simply can't get enough. A fun, laid back bar against one helluva stunning backdrop, with cool games and cracking parties, can you tell we have a soft spot?

With mighty cocktails, cool surroundings and chilled out vibes, Chinaski's is a bar for grown ups, without any stuffiness or pretension. A must-visit for anyone looking for a true hidden gem in Glasgow.
