Events that make history

Get exclusive access to a Glasgow icon

An unforgettable atmosphere

An unforgettable atmosphere away from the crowd, for your crowd

Exclusive access to Glasgow’s most iconic Neoclassical landmark, playing host to events of all varieties.

The one thing our gala dinners, award ceremonies and celebrations have in common is that the building always breaks the ice. Dating back to 1844 and nestled within the grandeur of the Merchant City, the rich history of Citation contributes to its boastful vibrance and rusticity.

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.
