Top 50 Cocktail Bars


Glasgow, Lanarkshire

Experiment with flavour at this quirky new addition to Glasgow’s streets

Lunar bar in Glasgow, which specialises in natural wines and seasonal cocktails, has powered from strength to strength since it opened last September.

Located in the Strathbungo areas of the city, the cocktail spot is the brainchild of the owner behind Grunting Growler beer shop Jehad Hatu.

There’s a funky selection of drinks on offer that won’t break the bank, starting at £7 for a sweet tea serve that can be ordered with or without alcohol. Cocktails range from rich and chocolatey to smoky, bitter and complex to tart and tropical, so whatever your taste, there’s something on offer.

If you’re looking to spice up your visit opt for the Rattlesnake – a concoction made with house infused chilli vodka, watermelon syrup and vanilla then topped with soda.

There’s also an array of international wines on offer, from a salty sea spritzy from the Basque Country to Indian red wine with grapes importuned from Italy.

Four-legged-friends are also welcome at the Southside venue which is dog friendly. The business operates on a walk-in only basis so it’s not possible to book.

The bar promises “good vibes and good tunes”, with its cosy but modern interior creating a warm, welcoming reception.

Following its launch, the owners said on Instagram: “We want to thank y’all from the bottom of our hearts for such a warm welcome to the neighbourhood.”

It’s open from 4pm to midnight Wednesdays to Fridays then midday to midnight on Saturdays and Sundays.
