The Corinthian Club Casino History
The Corinthian Club stands on the site The Virginia Mansion. The mansion was constructed in 1752 for the prominent City Merchant George Buchanan, and was famed as being one of the finest private residences in Glasgow.
In 1842 the original building was demolished to make way for the Glasgow and Ship Bank. In this David Hamilton created one of the city’s most elaborate and richly decorated buildings, both internally and externally. It was extended and embellished over many decades with superb sculptures and decorative features by highly acclaimed architects, artists and artisans, including James Salmon (Snr), John Thomas and James Ballantine and went on to become the Union Bank of Scotland.
In the 1920s the building was converted into justiciary courts and one of the UK’s finest Victorian interiors had many of its finest features hidden from public view behind false walls and ceilings.
In 1999 it was painstakingly restored as The Corinthian Club and the ‘Grade A Listed’ Roman Doric pilastrade, elaborate cornicing, 26 foot glass dome, superb sculptural plasterwork and free-standing classical figures were revealed once again.
The Corinthian Club Casino Food
As the Corinthian is set in such a vast and impressive building there is plenty of options to eat drink and be merry. The menu range is Brasserie A La Carte, Breakfast Menu, Sample Market Menu, Sample Whisky Experience Menu.I may have mentioned before that food is a passion of mine (Yes I have mentioned it over and over) and I think that the menus deserve a post all by themselves to do them justice so please pop back to see a full review, but take the opportunity to have a look at the menus your self
