About Festival Village: Merchant City

Festival Village: Merchant City is back and better than ever for summer 2022! After the outdoor drinking spot was transformed into a cosy Winter Garden over the colder months, this hidden gem in Glasgow’s Candleriggs Square is reopening for the summer with a new menu, fresh look and all-new boozy slushies!

The huge beer garden in Glasgow city centre is a secret suntrap, decorated with quirky street art. Nestled between Brunswick Street and Candleriggs, Festival Village is only a short stroll from Glasgow hotspots such as George Square, Princes Square Shopping Centre and the St. Enoch Shopping Centre, as well as Glasgow Queen Street and Argyle Street stations, making it the perfect spot to relax and refresh close to the action. The venue also serves as the perfect resting point along Glasgow’s famous mural trail, as it is set under one of Glasgow’s newest murals inspired by the landmark climate conference COP26, which the city hosted in November 2021. As the summer evenings stretch ever longer, Festival Village is also an ideal place for unwinding with after-work drinks. The venue is dog-friendly and four-legged friends will be welcomed with a cold bowl of water and a treat!

The summer drinks menu includes refreshing pints of Tennent’s, as well as premium local spirits such as Scottish handcrafted Smugglers Spirits. Not to be missed are the delicious new boozy slushies, there’ll be a special new flavour every week! Enjoy while basking in the sun’s rays and listening to music from the beer garden’s playlist, and there’s no need to worry about the weather taking a turn as all the seating is covered by clear Perspex roofs and surrounded by heaters. Festival Village also offers cosy wee nooks to explore, such as quirky tipi tents, which are enigmatically adorned with fairy lights and flowers. The tipis can be booked for special events.

The team at Festival Village: Merchant City have big plans for fun, family-friendly weekend events throughout the summer, hosted in the huge beer garden. Expect food, drinks, music and plenty of entertaining and amusing activities! To keep up with events planned, follow Festival Village: Merchant City on Facebook or Instagram.

Festival Village: Merchant City is open 11am-10pm every day, and accepts walk-ins. Bookings can be taken for groups of over 10, to book or enquire about hiring a tipi email hello@popuppros.co.uk.
