The Savings Bank for Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival!

Construction of the current premises began in 1888 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 Savings Bank of Glasgow was in operation from 1888 untill 1976 when the TSB act was writ into law forcing a centralisation of savings banks across the UK.

The building then went on to become Cafe Serghi, a raucous Greek restaurant famed for plate smashing and no holds barred hen parties.

And then from saving to splashing cash in style the venue became one of Scotland's first poker clubs, the notorious Cincinati Club operated games for high rollers and flutter hounds, the venue was even host to a police raid in 2006.

Now back with its original namesake The Savings Bank operates as a unique private function space offering a taste of the past for all manner of events under the stewardship of Inhouse
