CasinosAustria has set its sights on developing UK casino opportunities, the first of which sees the opening of Glasgow’s new entertainment and gaming venue,The Corinthian Club


The Corinthian Club in Glasgow is taking the city by storm with its unrivalled choice of 14 different dining, bar, socialising, gaming, meeting and event rooms set across five floors. Following an eight month £8m refurbishment, more than 1,500 guests celebrated the reopening on August 28, 2010. Set in one of the city’s most important architectural gems, the unique entertainment venue extends across all five floors of the landmark mansion house on Ingram Street in the heart of Glasgow’s stylish Merchant City.


Casinos Austria International and Scottish bar and club magnate, Stefan King, have been the driving forces behind the new gaming venue. Mr. King’s G1 Group closed The Corinthian Club for eight months while restoration of the 270 year old building got underway. G1 Group’s long-term collaborators, Graven Images, was responsible for the redesign of the building and the blending of traditional craftsmanship with modern design. On opening night, Mr. King, a tee-total, non- smoker who is notoriously media shy, was on hand to reopen the venue to the Glasgow public.


The new Corinthian Club offers an unrivalled choice of entertainment


options and the highest possible standards of service under one literally breathtaking roof. The Lower Ground floor is home to the Mash & Press Rooms, two vaulted spaces serving fine wines and speciality craft beers from around the world, and the Club – a late night destination featuring the city’s leading DJs on Friday and Saturday nights


The ground floor is the architectural heart of the venue and features superb dining in the Tellers Bar & Brasserie, a mouth- watering choice of finest spirits in Bootleg, the best gaming entertainment in town in the Gaming Rooms and timeless, elegant shopping opportunities in the Boutique.


The first floor is home to Charlie Parkers – a unique piano bar with a difference – as well as a choice of superb private dining, meeting and function rooms. Further meeting, event and reception rooms can be found on the upper floors.


To ensure its Gaming Rooms were really something special, Glasgow-based G1 Group, owners of The Corinthian Club and Scotland’s leading licensed trade group, teamed up with Vienna-based Casinos Austria International. The Corinthian Club is the renowned
