About this venue

Built by David Hamilton in 1842 on the site of the 18th century Virginia Mansion, The Corinthian is one of Glasgow's most elaborate and richly decorated buildings both internally and externally. It originally housed the Glasgow Ship Bank which was extended and embellished with superb sculptures and decorative features, added by highly acclaimed architects, artists and artisans including James Salmon (Snr), John Thomas and James Ballantine.

In 1929, the building was converted into judiciary 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.

Following a multi-million pound refurbishment the Corinthian reopened its doors revolutionising Glasgow’s meeting, eating and socialising scene. The private rooms available provide outstanding corporate meeting, event and reception spaces. Facilities include dedicated events staff, high speed WiFi access throughout the venue and audio visual equipment.

The venue has over 14 rooms over 5 floors providing the perfect entertainment or conference location.  Each of our very uniquely designed rooms is fully equipped with up to date conferencing equipment.

Private dining is a speciality, whether you are looking for a small intimate dinner in a relaxed informal atmosphere, or a grand, decadent affair with elegance and sophistication, we take pride in aiming to not only meet your expectations, but to exceed them.

The Flying Scotsman – elegant, sleek with a modern touch. A function room that inspires and takes your breath away. It features architectural elegance you can expect from one of Scotland’s most astounding venues.
