What an interesting and fun couple of days I have had. I have been in Glasgow working with my colleagues and last night we had dinner and drinks together. We ended up in an amazing place – The Corinthian Club. If you are ever in Glasgow, I highly recommend this incredible building. The architecture was jaw-droppingly beautiful. Look at this ceiling and lighting on one of the staircases.
How about this for a bar? I want to come here in daylight to appreciate the stunning domed ceiling.
These chairs are gorgeous.
Modelled here by the lovely Zoe. Not me 🙂
It is hard to accurately capture the scale of this amazing place, especially with my little camera at the end of a rather long day 🙂
2 of my colleagues I work with the most, Zoe and Mitchell.
We did have a little peak about the place. Each room was very individual. One room, Laird’s Room, had a polished concrete table and wood panelled walls but not in a traditional sense. They looked like wood from wine crates and were covered in chicken wire with some barrel ends mixed in.
This was my favourite bit of the wall 🙂
One reason we went to the Corinthian Club was for the casino. At my advanced old age, I have never in my life set foot in a casino before so I was very intrigued. The casino was in another huge room next to the lovely bar but I wasn’t allowed to take photos in there. Off the main casino were private rooms you could hire.
Around the top of the main casino was a gallery bar so you could watch people in the casino and admire another bit of this stunning building.
I had a little go on the roulette wheel so I can now say I have gambled in a casino. It is not really my thing though so I am pleased I have been but the house is still safe – no gambling debts to worry about!
In the morning I met Zoe and Yvonne at 7:30am for breakfast in Carluccio’s. A coffee was definitely required. Plus pear juice and water.
Eggs Benedict set me up well for the day.
Lunch was eaten in EAT at Glasgow airport with Mitchell. Chicken Harira soup, wholemeal roll, butter and prawn cocktail salad.
The soup was lovely; chicken, tomato, light spicing and topped with almonds and apricots. Really good.
Happy to land at Gatwick.
Exhausted after a 6 hour door to door trip back so I had chocolate pudding for dinner.
With pecans and coconut.
Panic not though dear reader. It was not as bad as it may have looked. It was made with some fruits that are slightly beyond their best, plus natural yogurt and cocoa powder. So quite healthy really 🙂
Well, this high roller is off to bed. Sweet dreams.
