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 the best beer gardens in Glasgow.

The Sanctuary

With one of the biggest and best beer gardens in Glasgow, The Sanctuary 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. 

WEST On The Green

158 user reviews 4

West Brewery boasts one of Glasgow's best beer gardens, with a huge lawn space, ideal for picnic-style pizzas and alfresco pints. Housed in the iconic Templeton Carpet Factory building, this brewery, restaurant and pub is a heaving destination when the sun's out.

Inn Deep

3 user reviews 3

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 their terrace. Alfresco drinks go down a treat here, with craft beer fiends flocking for hops and a menu of hearty accompaniments.

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.

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.

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 Ashton Lane institution, this place offers a welcome refuge from the bustling streets outside.

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.
