Merchant Square

The covered courtyard is a great spot to enjoy a drink, but choosing your tipple might be tough. The Beer Café has over 90 beers to choose from, while the Metropolitan mixes up a damn fine cocktail – with resident DJs keeping it lively till late every Friday and Saturday.

It’s a 10-minute walk from Glasgow Queen Street Station: strike south west across George Square, and follow Ingram Street to the City Halls and Old Fruitmarket.
