Best Beer Gardens In Glasgow

Summertime, and the livin' is easy. Okay, so we don't exactly get much sunshine in our city, but when we do, it's safe to say that we slap on that SPF and make the most of it. Luckily for us, there are some cracking places to drink outdoors, ideal for setting up camp with a round of cocktails until day turns to night. So, get ready to soak up those rays while you sip and dine alfresco-style with our guide to Glasgow's beer gardens.

One of the top Glasgow bars with a beer garden, The Sanctuary's terrace has room for 200 people to chill out in the summer months. Join them for late-night sessions complete with roaring fire pits, live sports screenings and mouthwatering BBQ grub.

Republic Bier Halle

5 user reviews 4

Not so much a beer garden but an outdoor drinking space in Glasgow, Republic Bier Halle is the perfect place for a thirst-quenching stein in the sunshine. Affectionately named the bier garden, this vibrant hub is made even better when the frozen cocktails come out to play.

Jinty McGuinty's

3 user reviews 4

Your typical Irish watering hole, Jinty McGuinty's is a fail-safe bet for good chat, great music and (even better) Guinness. Something of an Ashton Lane institution, this place offers a bustling space for your outdoor sipping.

Van Winkle

1 user review 5

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.

Inn Deep

Perched on the beautiful banks of the River Kelvin, Inn Deep gives you a wealth of waterside views to take in as you sun yourself on the terrace. As one of the best places for outside drinking in Glasgow, craft beer fiends flocking for hops and a menu of hearty accompaniments.
