Scotland’s newest luxury hotel has officially opened its doors today (March 1) as The Address Glasgow hopes to impress guests from around the world with four star elegance, indulgent luxury and a state of the art wellness centre. 

Located in the heart of the city on Glasgow’s Renfield Street, the 95 bed hotel celebrated its opening night by showing off its stunning interiors with a launch party that included live performances from tribal band Clan Ann Drumma, a spectacular fire dancer, and a DJ set from Capital Radio’s Robyn Richford.

The first Scottish property and venture outside of Ireland for family-owned Irish hospitality group, The Address Collective, the boutique venue has seen a meticulous renovation of one of Glasgow’s classically listed buildings.

Originally built in the 1890s, The Address Collective invested over £9 million to renovate the six storey building, with an end goal of achieving an 'elevated luxury', celebrating the rich heritage of the city with Scottish touch points throughout. A welcome boost for the city’s hospitality scene, The Address Glasgow and elegant restaurant North have created 80 jobs across the sector here in Glasgow.

Ciara McGettigan, one of the visionaries behind the Address Collective, has curated the look and feel of the new hotel, merging Irish design with Scottish motifs throughout the building from Irish wool soft furnishings to exclusively designed fabrics from Edinburgh Weavers.
