Centuries in the making

Make history with a Neoclassical landmark

A Glasgow icon

Nestled within the grandeur of the Merchant City

Dating all the way back to 1844, the rich history of Citation contributes to its vibrance and rusticity. Originally the Sheriff Court building designed by Clarke & Bell in the mid-19th century, the breathtaking features were retained during redevelopment 160 years later.‍

Sandstone columns dominate the particularly prominent B-listed exterior, dressed in fairy lights to delicately illuminate a picture-perfect atmosphere.

Today, Citation plays host to exclusive hire events of all styles. Whether it’s your fairytale wedding, a first-class fundraiser, or the celebration of a lifetime — you’ll be sure to make history with us here.

Merchant Suite

The grandeur of the Merchant Suite is the ideal setting guests dining or presentations

The bright versatile space benefits from a dedicated bar, a private heated balcony as well as mounted screens for presentations or awards. The exposed blonde sandstone and wooden floors provide a timeless and classic setting for more formal entertaining or presentations. Whether you need theatre style seating for panel discussions or those post conference dinners, the Merchant Suite is an airy atmospheric space for your event.

The Taverne Bar

Effortless luxury of the Taverne Bar provides the perfect backdrop for the start or the end of your evening

The Taverne Bar is the ideal space for drinks before and after dining in the Merchant Suite. For more casual get togethers it has everything you need to dance the night away into the wee small hours. The features of the space include DJ Box, colour changing LED lighting and Grand piano, as well as all in house technology for any speeches.


A exclusive space for guests to unwind among the cityscape

Our private balcony overlooking the Merchant City is the perfect finishing touch to this stunning venue. Dressed in greenery, with heated lamps nestled between the pillars of Citation, our balcony is an intimate private space we’re proud to offer to our guests.
