Scotland may be better known for its whisky, but Glasgow has no shortage of excellent wine bars. From cozy bars to stylish hot-spots, the city has it all. Here is a list of the top wine bars in Glasgow that promise a memorable night out.

Glasgow by night

1. Vroni’s

Wine Bar, Wine

Vroni’s calls itself the only ‘genuine’ wine bar in Glasgow, and seeks to source top-quality wines to suit the ever-evolving global wine market. From the cheapest house wine to the most expensive Dom Perignon, there isn’t a bad choice on offer in this highly curated bar.

2. Boudoir

Settle into a leather booth, nibble on antipasti, and enjoy wine by the glass or by the bottle at this romantic Merchant city boîte. With elegant tea lights, wallpaper, and velvet drapes, Boudoir keeps itself from taking itself too seriously with a smattering of rustic elements thrown in, as well as a friendly staff and frequent live music.

3. Member’s Club

Bar, European, British

Sophisticated yet unpretentious, this bar is part of a sprawling network of spaces all sharing space in a gorgeous 19th-century building. With a roof terrace sponsored by Lanson Champagne, it’s clear that this place knows its bubbly, and the staff know a thing or two about non-carbonated wines as well.

4. Ubiquitous Chip

Ubiquitous Chip

This legendary restaurant in Ashton Lane is something of a Glasgow institution. Its monthly wine club (on the last Thursday night of each month) does not disappoint, with education and tastings specialising on everything from bio-dynamics to specific wine regions. Can’t make that day? Fear not, as you can stop by anytime to try a wine flight chosen by the sommelier.

5. Tellers at The Corinthian Club

Bar, Brasserie, Restaurant, Nightclub, Contemporary, European, British

The Corinthian Club’s glamour and elegance are on display at its in-house bar, Tellers: gilded ceilings, chandeliers, parquet flooring and more. Yet the drinks themselves live up to the opulent expectations, and the monthly wine club on the final Thursday of the month is not to be missed. Hosted by the Club’s own sommelier, it features a selection of wines accompanied by canapés.

6. The Curler’s Rest

At this storied restaurant and bar, the wine club (first Monday of each month) is responsible for selecting the restaurant’s wine list. Participants get to taste eight different wines, paired with food, and then vote on their picks for the wines of the month. Now that’s democracy.

8. Torres Tapas

Restaurant, Spanish

This bustling Spanish restaurant on Sauchiehall Street is the perfect place for delectable tapas and Iberian wine. From cava to rioja, there’s an exemplary Spanish vino for every palate. Snack on some chorizo, sip a glass of wine, and feel like you’ve been transported to the shores of the Mediterranean.
