Shares designer with Tigerlily
Glasgow’s Cotton Club ready for opening
Rumours about the club have been the worst kept secret in the city’s entertainment sector.
However, what few people have revealed until now is that acclaimed designer Jim Hamilton – whose previous projects include Blythswood Square in Glasgow, Tigerlily in Edinburgh and Forgan’s in St Andrews – has helped recreate an interior that hints at the jazz era of the original Cotton Club in Harlem, New York in the 1920s and 30s.
The Cotton Club is located in the lower level of The Corinthian, occupying the site of the former Mash & Press cellar bar area – and is part of a revitalisation of the showcase Glasgow institution on Ingram Street.
It is owned by Stefan King’s G1 which, according to one estimate, already holds half the licences in Glasgow.
