It’s the first time a Glasgow entertainment venue has incorporated a pop-up retail space into one of its bars and, true to style, The Corinthian Club’s range has already featured high-end clothing and accessories from Comme des Garçons, Agent Provocateur and Boudiche.Bootleg takes its inspiration from a 1920s American speakeasy and is proving a huge hit with gents. Serving the finest matured sprits from around the world, Bootleg is also home to a secret cocktail which, in homage to its speakeasy roots, is only available to those who know it exists. The bar itself is fashioned out of traditional bank safes and the floor is made from a 500,000 piece mosaic tiles which have been painstakingly hand-crafted to form the image of Queen Victoria as she appeared on old banknotes - in a nod to the building’s past life as the Union Bank of Scotland.The new Corinthian Club has revolutionised Glasgow’s meeting, eating, socialising and gaming scene, boasting 14 rooms spaced across 5 floors. Creating more than 200 jobs for the city, the unique venue is open 24 hours and is the only one of its kind in the UK to offer a range of bars, clubs, restaurant, meetings rooms as well as a stunning gaming room all under one roof.Preserving much of the 260 year old Grade A listed building, internationally renowned Glasgow design firm Graven Images was commissioned to work alongside Scotland’s leading artisans - creating a stunning fusion of traditional craftsmanship and cool modern design. « less

Visited here on Saturday the 9th Aug. Heard loads of good reviews about this place. Upon entering I was shocked by it's appearance, a vast space with horrendous chairs/thrones! Ideal if your 7ft tall! The place was busy (Saturday night). We decided to ask for a menu thinking we would be moved to the restaurant, little did we know this... More

Fantastic evening, Wonderful food match by top class service. My wife and I had a couple of drinks before going into dinner. From arrival to leaving we felt as if they really wanted to ensure we had a good time. Highly recommended.

We had a drink at the Bootleg bar on the ground floor of the Corinthian yesterday. My wife spilt her cocktail after drinking about half. First, there were two staff there to clear up the spillage within 5 seconds, and the drink was replaced free of charge (we didn't even ask). A little later, I asked where I could buy... More

Just spent a night in the Lairds Room at the Corinthian in the company of colleagues and Ethan! Good food, great atmosphere and the best of service - cheeky chappy! Food can be great, atmosphere can be great but if service is rubbish then it's a rubbish night.....Ethan - thanks for a brilliant night! The Diageo Gang!!

The Corinthian never fails to exceed expectations and last night was no different. We booked a place at The Wine Club for a friend's birthday and I have to admit to feeling some trepidation before attending. I am certainly no wine connoisseur having only begun to enjoy wine of late however, I need not have been afraid! We were sat... More
