Boutique 1920s Casino Anticipates Full House On Opening Night
Friday, July 17th, 2015
on behalf of The Corinthian Club
The award-winning Corinthian Club is playing its cards right this summer, having just announced the introduction of a brand new, state of the art casino experience.
Harking back to jazz era Harlem, The Cotton Club will be a 1920s-style boutique casino and cocktail lounge, bringing an exciting new addition to Glasgow’s late-night scene.
The atmospheric venue, representing a significant investment by the venue, is set to change the Glasgow casino experience – offering vintage-style gaming, drinking and dining in a two-tier, subterranean speakeasy setting.
Linda Darby, General Manager of The Cotton Club, spoke of her delight at being able to bring something new and refreshing to the Glasgow casino scene.
Linda said: “We will be bringing Glasgow something entirely different to the city’s current casino offering.
“In fact, The Cotton Club will bring a brand new casino concept to rival anything offered in the UK, outside of London.
“The Cotton Club will be a high quality venue, open to both those who want to enjoy Glasgow’s finest gaming offering, and those who are just looking to have a bit of a chat over some classic cocktails and snacks.
“The 1920s speakeasy vibe will be felt throughout the casino and will be a key part of the overall experience – in everything from the dusky atmosphere and music to the staff’s vintage, bespoke uniforms.
“We are excited to bring something distinct and entertaining to the table but, overall, we want to provide a friendly and safe environment for late-night Glasgow revellers.
“We are working up big plans for the launch night at the end of August and hope everyone will come along and witness the unique experience of The Cotton Club.”
Acclaimed designer Jim Hamilton – whose previous projects include Blytheswood Square in Glasgow, Tigerlily in Edinburgh and Forgan’s in St Andrews – has looked to create a highly atmospheric, underground venue that hints at the jazz era of the original Cotton Club.
The Cotton Club is located in the basement of The Corinthian Club, occupying the site of the former Mash & Press cellar bar area – and is aimed at revitalising the showcase Glasgow institution on Ingram Street to new and existing audiences.
Those with Lady Luck on their side are welcome to try their hand on any one of the American Roulette, Blackjack, Three Card Poker and Punto Banco live tables, with welcoming ‘learn to play’ facilities available for beginners willing to put their cards on the table.
Electronic gaming can also be accessed on the ground floor, whereas luxurious chill-out areas are open to guests who have yet to perfect their poker face.
The Cotton Club will open its door on Friday 28th August 2015. More details on the launch night will be provided in due course.
