The Sanctuary

11 user reviews 2

With one of the biggest and best beer gardens in Glasgow, The Sanctuary Terrace has room for 200 people to chill out throughout the day and night. Join them for late night sessions complete with a log fire, TVs screening live sport, plenty of seating, rain cover and BBQ grub. 

Republic Bier Halle

5 user reviews 4

Not so much a beer garden but outdoor drinking space in Glasgow, Republic Bier Halle is the perfect place for an icy pint in the sunshine when you're in the centre of town. Affectionately named the bier garden, the vibrant hub is made even better when the frozen cocktails come out.

Inn Deep

3 user reviews 3

Perched on the beautiful banks of the River Kelvin, Inn Deep gives you a wealth of water-side views to take in as you sun yourself on their terrace. Alfresco drinks go down a treat here, with craft beer fiends flocking for hops and a menu of hearty accompaniments.

The Ark

Much loved by the student community and sporting fans looking for some live screened action, The Ark is a summer favourite thanks to its generous outdoor space. Just remember to head down early as this Glasgow beer garden is a popular hotspot that fills up quickly.

WEST On The Green

149 user reviews 4

West Brewery boasts one whopping beer garden from its Victorian masterpiece of a building and grounds. Housed in Glasgow's iconic Templeton Carpet factory building, this brewery, restaurant and pub all-in-one is a heaving destination when the sun's out.

St. Luke's

1 user review 5

With a stellar line up of music and art events, St Luke's is the place for live entertainment. You can also catch the football on a big screen inside or sip on a special craft beer in the garden at the Winged Ox bar and kitchen, which always promises good times.

Jinty McGuinty's

3 user reviews 4

Your typical Irish watering hole, Jinty McGuinty's is a fail-safe bet for good chat, good music and (even better) Guinness. Something of an Aston Lane institution, you can find some refuge or join in the action of the bustling streets outside.

Van Winkle

This East End boozer brings a slice of Americana to Glasgow, serving up comfort food like delicious pizza and naughty wings alongside dirty burgers. Nab a spot in the beer garden and let the sun-soaking, cocktail slurping and sharing board grazing commence.
