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.
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.
Ubiquitous Chip, 12 Ashton Lane, Glasgow, United Kingdom, +44 141 334 5007
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.
This cozy West End watering hole is housed in a 600-year-old building and offers a warm and inviting atmosphere. With a lengthy and well-curated list of wines, there is a drink for everyone, and the food is delicious as well.
The Curler’s Rest, 256-260 Byres Road, Glasgow, United Kingdom, +44 141 341 0737
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.
