The Lite Bar

“The former Banking Hall was fully restored & opened to celebrate Glasgow’s status as UK City of Architecture & Design 1999. Renowned for its stunning features including a 26 foot glass dome, stunning brass chandeliers some of the finest mouldings and free standing figurines in the UK.

Re-vamped in August 2003 the stunning “Lite Bar” marries the traditional with the contemporary and the result is spectacular. Specially commissioned leather booths, luxurious sofa’s & comfy chaise longue’s line the walls around the impressive central bar”.
