The Corinthian Club














A beautiful club, located in Glasgow, Scotland.

Originally constructed in 1842, this building once was The Glasgow Ship Bank, and was thought of as one of the city’s most elaborately ornate buildings at the time. This fabulous and respectful restoration of the building was led by Graven Images, bringing in a more contemporary look with an abundance of elegance, and nothing short of a glamorous feel. I believe that the glass balconies were such a wonderful idea, so one can truly appreciate the architecture and design while enjoying a relaxing moment. With opulence at every turn, and surprise spaces, this beautiful building is truly unforgettable. The Corinthian Club is certainly on my list of places to see—though I do not gamble, a lunch or dinner in their incredible restaurant and a tour would be so lovely!
