Bars to Visit Around Christmas Time in Glasgow

Christmas time, mistletoe and wine. Oh we do love love Christmas here at DesignMyNight, the raucous parties, the frantic shopping, the never-ending face stuffing. But we also love the magic and the glow of the festive season too, especially when it means having a romantic night out, or a catch up with friends in one of the city's cosy watering holes. So if you're looking for somewhere toasty to toast to the season, check out our guide to the Glasgow bars that take Christmas seriously.

Waxy O'Connor's Glasgow

2 user reviews 4

Adorned in wood and always buzzy, Waxy's is a cosy bar, all year around, but even more so once the mistletoe and holly come out for Christmas. And with a prime location just off Georges' Square, it's the ultimate hot port retreat after a nice of scraping and skating on the ice. 

The Oyster Bar @ Rogano

2 user reviews 5

There's something rather nostalgic about Christmas, and something rather nostalgic about Rogano too. So it's the perfect place to meet old friends over Christmas. Enjoy some mulled wine or Champagne, or go all out with an oyster supper. If you're looking for a refined place for drinks this Christmas, it doesn't get more sophisticated than Rogano. 

Curler's Rest

Curler's Rest is a charming bar in the West End and the perfect hideaway after a chilly day trawling the boutiques on Byres Road. Curl up by the fire, get a glass of wine into you,, dig into some comfort food, and soak up the atmosphere. Warm, Christmas, and pretty dang perfect for a winter's evening.

Hummingbird is a likely spot to drink at Christmas time in Glasgow, so if you're looking for a few bevvies someplace stylish to get you feeling festive, this is the place to come. Quiet in the early evening, it's a relaxed sojourn for post shopping drinks, before heating up in the evening, with the perfect level of Christmas craziness.
