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

The Corinthian is an amazingly grand, opulent and beautifully and sympathetically restored former bank and court house. Grand is a word that barely begins to describe it. It is spectacular - an amazing place for special drinks or a dinner or whatever - this place is diverse with its club, bars and casino and dining options. However, the staff were... More

Have had afternoon tea twice in the last month with different friends and thoroughly enjoyed both occasions. On my first visit there was a problem with finding Earl Grey Tea so I opted for tea with a slice of lemon which was a perfect substitute. The sandwiches were delicious and the wee scones to die for but the lovely selection... More

Was here for a stag on Saturday 12th and we had a superb night. Private room was set up brilliantly, the food was excellent and the service provided by Ashling (is that correct?) was first class. Don't know how much it cost but it was well worth it. Well done Corinthian!!
