Ideas for air conditioning a garage with no windows

I'm thinking of turning my garage into a man cave but I'm trying to figure out how to cool the garage with some type of ac unit. I know they make those portable ac units but I don't know much about them. Don't they require some type of exhaust to the outside? I'm not sure how I would pull that off if they do because both walls, aside from the garage door, are brick. Any ideas?

Add another duct from your current AC unit?

Hire a professional to install the AC unit.

That's all I got.

Duct work is about the only way you can go.

Exhaust it through the ceiling/attic/roof or overhang. Most only require a small hole for exhaust much like a dryer vent. It can be patched later if needed

You could just cut a hole in the garage wall, frame around it w/ 2x's and put a window unit in. Portable units don't work well and the wall a/c's are pricey.

Before you go adding ductwork you have to make sure your house ac can cool that extra room. That or you can install electronic baffles that open with a switch to add air when you want it. Best thing in my opinion would be cut the brick and frame out for a window unit. Get a 220 unit. When wall is open pull another run of wire to your panel and add a circuit. Prob best to get a an electrician to do that. You don't want to undersize you r mancave. A friend added two 12" ducts to his garage and still ended up having to install a window unit.
