Construction of the current premises began in 1889 with the vision of transforming a simple hatters
shop into a radical new savings bank that would work to put pennies back into the pockets of
Glasgow’s working class. The victorian building features a host of architectural curiosities from
a lost Glasgow. After a change in ownership The Savings Bank went on to become a raucous Greek
restaurant and notorious poker den, each iteration leaving its unique mark on the venue.
The Savings Bank is situated Just south of the Clyde in the Laurieston area, just a stone's
throw from the city centre. The Savings Bank’s unique location offers fantastic transport links
from the city center and offers a level of privacy for events.
