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

Had been here before and had loved it, so arranged to meet friends there. There were 6 of us in total, we had round table that suited us great. We ordered from both menus & it wasn't an issue, menu was varied with something to suit all of us. I had ordered a cocktail but 3 times I asked about... More

Went here for my bday night out! Set up was great, the manager was awesome but my only complaint was the bar staff was a bit rude and seemed really young. I'm used to something a little bit more sophisticated. Also the dance rooms downstairs need some Air conditioning. The casino there was pretty good.

I had dinner with friends at The Corinthian in August 2014 The friendly staff and great food make this a very good place to eat. The atmosphere on the Saturday night was also very good. The food was well prepared and presented well and in good time and my ribeye steak was cooked to perfection as were the langoustines. All... More

Great food, beautiful surroundings, but the stand out feature was the amazing service we got from Craig in the main bar/restaurant. Friendly and helpful. Many similar venues could learn a thing or two from this top rate service. Well done, great dining experience.

I visited The Corinthian for lunch on 23rd August and the food was excellent. I dined on the market menu which had plenty of choice and free glass of wine. We were told they needed the table back in 2 hours but 3 years later asked for the bill, we were not rushed. Our waiter Craig Mathie was an absolute... More

My husband and I met some family here for lunch and thought the restaurant was beautiful. The Oysters were delicious and cocktails were amazing. I would recommend though i do hear it gets busy at night.

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
