Beer Gardens In Glasgow
Summertime, and the livin' is easy. Okay, so we don't exactly get much sunshine in Glasgow, but when we do, there's no city better at taking full advantage. Luckily enough for us, there's some cracking beer gardens in Glasgow that are ideal for setting up camp and getting the drinks in on those hot summer days. Soak up those rays while you drink and dine alfresco, with our recommendations for the best beer gardens in Glasgow.
A midnight revelers hot spot, The Social is the place for those looking for not only a night on the dance floor, but sunny 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.
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 indulge on cocktails al fresco.
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, you'll find BBQs in the summer and performances on the outdoor stage.
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 with al fresco drinkers very quickly.
