About this venue

Host your next meeting or event here at Tontine, in the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City.

The Tontine building is one of the most historic buildings in Glasgow. Built in the eighteenth century, the Victorian building in the Trongate stands on the site of a workshop used by James Watt while he was employed as an instrument maker at the University of Glasgow in the 1750s.

It was there he first made tentative improvements to a basic steam engine, which would lead to his invention of the steam condenser and usher in the Industrial Revolution.

Today, if you are planning a meeting, conference, employee team building day or even a training event our large multi-functional space, Zone E would be perfect. The space can accommodate up to 60 delegates; it features a presentation auditorium, boardroom table for up to 20 people, four break-out areas, video and telephone conference facilities, super-fast broadband and two plasma screens.
