“As one of Glasgow’s favourite bars, The Ubiquitous Chip is a botanical paradise that should certainly be one for your feed,” said the report.

“For those that love the night-time air and a bit of al fresco dining, the fairy light display outside the bar does not disappoint.

“The bar has proven its popularity on Instagram with more than 3000 hashtags and a fresh interior since the lockdown, making it an aesthetic pit stop that will have your followers reaching for that like button.”

The study rated the most Instagrammable bars in Glasgow using a number of factors (including Instagram hashtags and followers and ‘excellent’ TripAdvisor reviews) to score each spot out of 60.

The Chip, owned by the Clydesdale family since 1971, pipped October in Princes Square to the top spot.

The stylish venue came second for its ‘funky and relaxed atmosphere’ and ‘endless pretty décor’ while Buchanan Street’s celebrated The Ivy with its ‘bright décor and patterned walls’ was third.

The study said of The Ivy: “The funky décor is just the start when it comes to this bar.

“Indulge in an afternoon tea with handcrafted cakes, order some impressive cocktails or book a private dining experience.

“With so much to offer The Ivy is the perfect place to get that picture for the ‘gram!”

Glamorous cocktail hub Champagne Central at Glasgow Central Station was fourth thanks to its ‘lavish Victorian styling, marble floors and fizzing bubbly’ and fifth was Porter and Rye in trendy Finnieston.

The report noted: “Porter and Rye opened its doors to guests back in 2014 and has since made a name for itself in the heart of Glasgow.

“Though the chain started out selling dry-aged beef and molecular plate dining, they have since gone on to include wild ingredients in every dish they make.

“But it’s not just the food that makes this venue so Instagrammable.

“With beer bottles covering the wall and an old-fashioned feel, you will feel right at home when snapping some memories of your visit.”
