The Ark


Located in the heart of the city, and in close range to Strathclyde University, The Ark is a popular destination for students, sports lovers and weekend pre-drinkers - where the drinks are happily affordable and the food prices are as tasty as the menu. The Ark also proudly serves all sporting enthusiasts, with an enormous Sky Sports screen and an atmosphere as close as it gets to being at the stadium. 

With the blessing of its student-friendly drinks and delicious menu offering 2-4-1 and beer and burger promotions, The Ark's real deal-breaker lies in its newly refurbished, massively spacious modern beer garden. With a top deck full of picnic tables in an ideal sun-soaking location, The Ark provides its outdoor drinkers with a sky sports screen, outdoor pool tables, and several swinging chairs and twinkly fairy lights to top it all off. So, when you're looking to treasure those rare sunny days in Glasgow, the Ark beer garden is the place to be for an ice cold beverage in the Scottish sun.
