- Built in 1842, the Virginia Mansion has played host to countless banks and even the High Court over the years. Now, restored to its magnificent former glory, it houses Corinthian - complete with exclusive members-only bar (Ewan McGregor drinks here), restaurant, public bars and even a nightclub on Friday and Saturday. Superb pianists create a wonderful atmosphere on a Saturday night and Sundays are woken up with live jazz music. One of Glasgow's more upmarket venues, the toilets are even staffed by a personal assistant offering help, chocolates and mints.The main bar is spacious and ornate with high ceilings, comfy chairs partitioned in wood and surrounding mirrors. The smaller saloon is in the style of a 1920s piano bar with plush red leather bound sofas and huge mirrors. An excellent selection of bar and main meals is available, pricey but worth it. Food is served all week from noon-9p. An wide range of wines and cocktails is on offer with prices reflecting the upmarket atmosphere.
