The Savings Bank is one of Glasgow's lost treasures, entering through the granite pillars and wrought iron gates will transport you back to an era of Victorian architectural opulence. Celebrate our city’s heritage by having your special event here and join us in a toast to the century old statement:
"No institution in the country has done more to encourage the spirit of independence than the Savings Bank of Glasgow."
From virtue and caution to gambling and risk, the Savings Bank has a fascinating history. Built in the late 19th Century, its original purpose was to put pennies and pounds back into the pockets of Glasgow's working class. Although the mahogany teller’s desk has long since disappeared, a number of original Victorian features enrich the space. Plaster pomegranates, money bags and cornucopias rest atop the pillars, fitting symbols of plenty for the bank’s most recent incarnation as a casino. Under the low light of the dome high rollers wagered where spendthrifts once saved.
Now, two of Glasgow’s foremost independent event companies, Inhouse and the Liquid Academy, invite you to come and book the bank for your own unique celebration.
