Billed as the "most awesome beer garden in Glasgow", this Ashton Lane legend was voted as the Best Outdoor Space in town by DMN voters. The garden becomes a hive of activity at the first sight of sunshine, with picnic tables and outdoor BBQs making this an alfresco haven and a beautiful space to make the most of all year round. Come in the evening for relaxed drinks under twinkling fairy lights.

Inn Deep

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 in Glasgow go down a treat here with craft beer fiends flocking to get some of the hops on offer and then enjoying said drink right by the river. 

Record Factory

3 user reviews 3

Record Factory has a very cool beer garden in Glasgow's West End. Something of a higgledy-piggledy design, the spacious outdoor area has a bit of a rustic character to it and becomes a heaving destination when the sun is out. With picnic benches and couches scattered about, the Record Factory beer garden hosts BBQs in the summer, and even boasts its very own outdoor stage.

In this den of cosy interiors and classic style, the biggest surprise in this secret bar, is not the bar itself, it's the garden out back (but hush, we didn't tell you). Chinaski's roomy decking gets the sun all evening, making it the perfect hideaway and a gorgeous place to drink or dine al fresco in Glasgow.

This Bath Street beauty might be somewhat unsupposing on the outside space front, but little did you know that Moskito on Bath Street has a pretty lil beer garden in Glasgow. Head out back to its courtyard space and mingle here on a balmy summers night or a tepid winter one as it draws in revelers all year round. And those lanters. Naww.

Clockwork Beer Company

Not only does the Clockwork Beer Company have their own microbrewery onsite, they also have a wonderful beer garden. It has even been awarded a prize from Glasgow's Gardening Association for recognition of their floral displays - now that's a beer garden in Glasgow that sounds bloomin' lovely. 

The Social

A midnight revelers hot spot, The Social is the place for those looking for not only a night on the dance floor, but alfresco drinks in Glasgow too. Less of a beer garden and more of a courtyard space, this Merchant City bar sits pretty in Royal Exchange Square so you can pull up a seat outdoors and get the drinks in. 

WEST On The Green

5 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 is out. And is it any wonder, just look at that spread of picnic benches over looking Glasgow Green in the East End.
