Cosy bars for chilly days

Cosy fireplace

 

What’s better than finding somewhere you can snuggle down in with a beer and preferably a roaring fire. We hope you like these places that we like to escape into…

 

Merchant City

Babbity Bowster

One of Glasgow’s oldest bars hidden down a street that many people still don’t know about. Real ales on tap, great pub food and a fantastic restaurant upstairs. It has a smashing roaring fire in the bar.

16-18 Blackfriars St, Glasgow G1 1PE
0141 552 5055

Boudoir Wine Bar

Tea lights, wine, and secluded seating (and cake!). Somewhere for a date or to rekindle your love for wine, preferably with your favourite person with you 😉

Boudoir Wine Bar, Unit E/Merchant Square/Candleriggs, Glasgow
0141 552 4774

 

Rab Ha’s

Well known for its food, beer and fire. You’ll need to get in quick to nab a fireside seat though!

West-end

The Belle

Small bar with good beer selection. A hidden gem in the west end. Real fire to cosy up to as well.

Cottiers

Smashing fire in here as well as the (former church) architecture to keep your eye happy.

The Finnieston

Large selection of beer and an even larger selection of gin, very popular bar with fire and excellent food.

Munro’s

A favourite of ours. Good selection of beer, cosy chairs and beer flights – a choice of 3 different third pints of craft or cask beers presented on a taster bat.

More cafe than bar but this eclectic joint just east of the centre will make you want to stay and chat forever.

Outside Glasgow

Montgomerie Arms

Located in Eaglesham, this cosy bar is just outside the city but is within easy reach thanks to the number 4 bus route.
