Lock 27 right on the Forth & Clyde canal.
Cottiers Smashing big space beside this converted church.
The Record Factory at the less trendy end of Byres Rd with easy access from Kelvinhall underground station.
Ubiquitous Chip on Ashton Lane. A Glasgow rarity in that the beer garden is on the roof. Just behind Hillhead underground station.

Inn Deep right beside the river Kelvin and handy for Kelvinbridge underground station.
The Finnieston Great seafood and great gin can be enjoyed here.
Chinaskis just along from the Mitchell library. Easy access from Charing Cross train station.
Brutti Ma Buoni not really a beer garden per se but Brunswick Street is a pleasant place to sit when the sun is out.
Drygate Brewery a sun trap decking area is located on the 1st floor.
West brewery overlooking Glasgow Green and the People’s Palace.
The Rum Shack handy for buses along Pollokshaws Rd and Queens Park train station.
