A new 1920s-style casino in Glasgow is anticipating a full house for its launch this Friday (November 20).
If it plays its cards right, the Corinthian Club could see hoards of revellers descend on its new state-of-the-art boutique casino and cocktail, which hark back to the Harlem jazz era.
Its new atmospheric club – dubbed The Cotton Club – is set to offer vintage-style gaming, drinking and dining in a two-tier, subterranean speakeasy – developed by acclaimed designer Jim Hamilton.
Hamilton’s recent projects have included a revamp of Edinburgh’s Tigerlily, which also hints at the jazz era of the original Cotton Club; Forgan’s in St Andrews, and Blythswood Square in Glasgow.
Cotton Club operations manager Scott Kinkaid said: “As of Friday, 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 hope everyone will come along and witness the unique experience of The Cotton Club when we officially launch this weekend.”
The Cotton Club can be found in the basement of The Corinthian Club, occupying the former site of the Mash & Press cellar bar area.
Its highlights include American Roulette, Blackjack, Three-Card Poker and Punto Banco live tables, as well as electronic gaming.
