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.

“Great venue Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We visited the corinthian as a group of girls 16 of us in total and used the private dining room. The room and surroundings were amazing, the food and wine didn't let us down and the great night out was topped off by the fabulous team who looked after us. All in all a really good start to the wedding celebrations. We would all reccomend it in the future.

“Don't see what all the fuss is about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

The Corinthian is ok, but i think personally it is over rated. Don't intend to go back. The service isn't great, the drinks are over priced and i have had better meals else where.

“Excellent meal in lovely surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We visited the Corinthian Club for a Friday evening meal. The food was excellent, the service was very good with the staff very pleasant and attentive and of course the surroundings quite grand. All in all a very pleasant evening and good value for money.

“You have to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

This place is brilliant. Loads of quirky little places in the building to get lost in. Different bars with different themes. I went after a business dinner with some colleagues and have been several times with friends. The atmosphere, place and service is just spot on. Some great nights out thank you
