Owner description: Following an eight month £5.7m refurbishment, The Corinthian Club reopened its doors in late August 2010.Scotland’s leading artisan craftsmen spent hundreds of man-hours painstakingly creating aspects of the building, including a mosaic floor made of more than half a million tiles, over a thousand hand moulded acanthus leaves, fitting hand carved panels and restoring ornate wooden detailing.The iconic 26’ Corinthian dome remains a focal point in the new Tellers Bar and Brasserie where designers have also uncovered a stairway, once the route to the cells of the High Court, which now leads to the relaxed, organically-styled Mash and Press Rooms.A new addition to the venue, The Corinthian Club now boasts the most stunning gaming facilities in the country.Other highlights include the glittering Boutique, offering everything from afternoon tea to evening cocktails and housing the venue’s high-end retail space for ladies to enjoy a spot of retail therapy in the luxurious comfort of the plush velvet and sparkling crystal interior. 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.

Booked a table for 5 for afternoon tea as a birthday treat. From the minute we entered the restaurant the staff were attentive and helpful. Asked about any special dietary needs, explained what would be coming. Tea was lovely, nice selection of sandwiches and cakes and we were asked if everything was satisfactory whilst still eating. They were very busy... More

The Corinthian itself is a beautiful place, a crowd of around 14 of us went into the piano bar last night. We were the only people there, 3 members of staff behind the bar yet the service and customer care was very poor. There was a limited amount of alcohol available in the bar, we ordered food - which after... More

Booked for afternoon tea using itison offer. Very impressed with the building however the service was very poor. Tea/coffee served 20 minutes before any sandwiches/cakes arrived. These were nice however our coffee was nearly finished and we weren't offered a top up. Nobody came near to ask if everything was ok. We simply left our itison voucher on the table... More

We were recommended this place when heading to Glasgow & delighted we stopped by. Definitely one of the best piano bars we've even been in. The piano man was class!! Brilliant atmosphere & served very quickly each time at the bar even though it was a very busy Christmas party night. Great bar!!

Stopped in for a quick drink at the Corinthian after a long shopping day and was very impressed by the decor, very grand but with a modern twist. I enjoyed a lovely glass of pink champagne. It was very busy so we couldnt get food, it would be advisable to book. But overall a lovely ambiance and wow factor!
