Best bars for late night drinking in Glasgow

Best bars for late night drinking in Glasgow


Where to grab a nightcap after most other bars close for the evening


For those evenings when kicking-out time comes too soon, here we round up our favourite late-opening bars in Glasgow so you can carry on the fun into the wee small hours.

Blue Dog
New York-style piano bar in the city centre, opening until the wee small hours all week, with skilled mixologists serving extensive cocktails, with an extra bar downstairs called Down Dog.

By day this popular bar serves dogs, burgers, and street eats; by night there's live music, DJs, lots of craft beer and drink promos – all until 3am, every night of the week.


A slightly more sedate affair than other late-night drinking dens, with a good craft beer range, where the live music doesn't spill upstairs should you just want a drink.

Max's Bar & Grill
Long-time favourite of bars workers in the city centre, with a solid drinks selection and plenty of space for late-night conversation into the wee hours all week.

This city centre basement bar with music on its mind serves until 3am every night, and manages to be both popular and eclectic, with late-night bites for the hungry.
