Cosy Pubs in Glasgow

Glasgow gets more than its fair share of cold nights, rainy days and snowy weeks. And where better to spend them than down the pub?

There's nothing quite like a warm pub on a cold day, so here's our pick of the cosiest bars in Glasgow.

Curler's Rest

5 user reviews 4

A toasty pub in the West End, the Curler's Rest is a perfect combination of comfy couches a warm fire, great comfort food and friendly vibes. The only problem is that, eventually, you'll have to go outside again. 

The Pot Still

It's all too easy to while away the hours at this friendly Hope Street pub. With a massive collection of whiskies (over 560) and a set of staff who know their stuff, it might be the weather forcing you in, but it's the selection that'll keep you there until kicking out time.

Stravaigin is one of the most quaint hideaways in Glasgow, and the perfect place to sit over great food, great wine and great conversation on a cold winter's night in Glasgow. From the higgledy piggledy layout, creating toasty corners and caverns, to the fairy lights adorning the bar, the rustic wood and original stonework, this whole bar oozes cosy, add in some hearty grub, and it'll take a whole heap of strength to leave again.

With a menu of delicious and filling dishes, great beers on tap and over 70 different malts to sip on, Dram is a cosy and welcoming hub for drinking, eating and warming up during the colder months.

The Ben Nevis

The Ben Nevis is a cosy pub on Argyle Street with warm Scottish banter and a roaring turf fire. Three nights a week, live folk sessions create an even toastier glow, making this a lovely place to shelter on a winter's night in Glasgow.

Slouch has some of the comfiest, cosiest couches in Glasgow, making it a rather special hideaway on a cold day in the city. Stay on 'til the evening and you're in for a treat, Slouch do some mega eats, as well as churn out live blues and jazz sessions almost every night. If a little soul food and soul music can't warm your cockles, nowt can. 

The Finnieston

2 user reviews 5

The Finnieston on Argyle Street is a cracking cosy venue. Rustic decor, a stone fireplace, old fashioned bookshelves and bench style seating make this one toasty hangout. With great food and incredible cocktails it's the sort of place where the world outside just sort of stops while you're in there. A great spot for a catch up with friends or laid back date night in Glasgow.
