We're all missing socialising with friends in our favourite watering holes but thanks to some of Glasgow’s best bars, we can at least still enjoy our tipples of choice in the comfort of our own homes. So whether you are craving classic cocktails or dreaming of draught beers, here’s a list of those venues that have adapted their offer to deliver drinks to your door.
Brewdog Merchant City
Craft beer experts Brewdog are offering food and drink deliveries and collection from their Merchant City venue. They have an amazing collection of craft beer, spirits, ciders and wine all available to order with some Christmas themed gins too. Head to the Brewdog Now website to select from their extensive menu that also includes vegan and alcohol-free options. Receive 25% off your first order with the code WELCOMETONOW.
Neighbourhood bar, The Gate, is a modern Scottish pub with a big focus on Scottish brands, with hand-selected whiskies and an expanding gin selection. While their doors remain closed, they are serving up cocktails for delivery or collection, and with ‘Create My Cocktail’ you can let their experienced team make you up drinks based on the flavours you love! They also have a Kindness Cocktail on the menu with 100% of proceeds going towards the Kindness Homeless Street Team. Go to their website to get your orders in early for delivery Thursday-Saturday (collection also available).
Glasgow Cocktail Collective
The Glasgow Cocktail Collective is a group of bartenders famed for their innovative cocktails, which they serve from popular city bars including, Vodka Wodka, Kelvingrove Café, Phillies of Shawlands and Blue Dog. They have joined forces to offer a fabulous selection of pre-prepared cocktails, spirits, wine and beer to enjoy at home. Visit their website, choose your tipple and delivery slot and they will do the rest. The drinks come chilled and ready to pour. You can take advantage of same-day delivery if you order before 8pm.
To enjoy advent with a Glasgow twist, visit Tennent's Lager's online store and pick up a Tennent's advent calendar for you or a friend. The 24 cans are presented in a specially designed Christmas box - be sure to order soon as this is a limited edition run.
Buck's Bar is offering takeaway cocktails, such as a Pear, Ginger and Raspberry Mule or Spiced Lemon Iced Tea, for just £5 each. Why not grab some of their classic buffalo wings to go too! You can pre-order and collect from their Trongate and West Regent Street branches, with deliveries also available to selected Glasgow postcodes. Check out their website for the full menu.
Bavaria Brauhaus is a traditional Munich-style Bavarian beer hall in the heart of Glasgow city centre that is now helping you enjoy the best German beers from home with their new delivery (within 10 miles) and click and collect services. Choose from 24 draught beers, including two Oktoberfest seasonal picks, as well as a selection of rare bottles, gluten-free and alcohol-free beers. Both services are running from Thursday-Sunday from 12pm. Head to the Bavaria Brauhaus website for details on how to order.
Redmond's is located in one of Glasgow’s coolest neighbourhoods, Dennistoun and is another bar that has adapted to the times by offering customers takeaway beer boxes and growlers to go. Get your order in via Direct Message or email. There are different beers on offer each week so head to their Instagram for information on what's available.
Drygate Brewery was the UK’s first experiential brewery but while you can’t visit this popular Duke Street venue in person, you can still enjoy their range of tried and tested brews, small-batch or keg-only beers from home. Head to their online shop to check out the products on offer including beers, gifts and merchandise.
WEST on the Green
WEST on the Green is housed in the iconic Templeton building on Glasgow Green. And while we reminisce about summer evenings spent in their beer garden sampling their artisan beers and enjoying their German-inspired menu, we need to content ourselves with enjoying their draught beer and Currywurst at home. Visit the WEST website to pre-order your beer for collection or delivery (Thursday-Saturday from 12pm-6pm) and why not add in some food too?
Social and Cocktails 2GO
Social and Cocktail Events have teamed up with Glasgow’s McLeans Gin on a brand new venture, delivering top-notch gin cocktails direct to you at home. You can select from either pre-mixed cocktails or a box of ingredients to allow you to make them at home. They also have a seasonal selection of ever-changing, specially-created concoctions, kicking off with Halloween of course! Visit their website to view the full menu and place an order.
