Following an extensive three-year renovation, The House of Gods, which opens in the Merchant city in the New Year, has given a sneak peak ahead of rooms becoming available for sale next week (19 October).
Much like its Edinburgh counterpart, luxury is at the heart of the House of Gods experience, from hand-painted 24 karat-gold embellished de Gournay wallpaper in the lobby bar, to the marble fountain crowning the rooftop bar, and custom cashmere blankets in the rooms.
Occupying the corner of Glassford and Wilson Streets, guests can look forward to experiencing the brand’s signature extravagance and a new room category which comes complete with four poster bed and iconic golden bathtub, as well as two Presidential Suites on the hotel’s top floor. It’s here that guests will be able to ‘party like they’re famous’, with private cinemas, expansive ensuites kitted out with twin baths and sprawling his and hers shower room, as well as the option to enjoy the whole floor if desired.
The new rooftop ‘Garden of Eden’ inspired restaurant and bar, will serve an all-day menu of light bites, sharing plates, and cocktails. Downstairs it will serve a casual dining menu throughout the day, transforming into a ‘glamorous cocktail party’ each evening.
Speaking about the opening, CEO Mike Baxter has said, ‘we couldn’t be more excited about opening our Glasgow location. It’s a place where everyone knows how to have a great time – and we’re here to treat each and every guest like the rockstar they are.
“Creating the ultimate escape here has been our main priority. In addition to offering services like early check-in and late check-out as standard, we have worked alongside incredible artists and craftspeople to create a destination which celebrates true extravagance.
“From working alongside Siobhan Mackenzie who has designed our team’s uniforms to creating a custom toile de jouy wallpaper designed by Gregory Lewis, who has previously worked with a multitude of key fashion brands including Chanel, Fendi, and Christian Louboutin to name just a few, I can’t wait to welcome our first guests in just a few weeks.’
