History

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.

Testimonials

"We had an absolutely amazing time, as did all of our guests. The venue was perfect and all of the staff were amazing - everyone commented on how much they loved it and how fantastic The Savings Bank is. I am just gutted it went past so quickly and it's all over, I wish we could do the whole thing again! We literally have the best time, and so much of that was down to the venue and your fantastic team!"

"I knew at first sight that the Savings Bank was the perfect venue for my exhibition on Glasgow Architecture. When you walk in for the first time it's hard not to feel breathless at the beauty of the rotunda ceiling. The staff were extremely accommodating in the prep for my show and everything went smoothly [...] I can't say enough good things about the place."
