Clubbing and sartorial self-respect used to go hand in hand in Glasgow. The big clubs used to be synonymous with fashion awareness, or at least with people who tried their best and outlald a bit of cash on their outfits. For one reason or another today’s club queues Just don’t have the same sparkle, which Is why Mansion House seems like a return to normality for the city’s well dressed clubbing diaspora. Clothing emporium Cruise is teaming up with the Corinthian and a host of swanky DJs (including l-larrl, Huggy and the Moneypenny's crew from down south) for a

night of well-cut, well heeled revelry.

From top to bottom, you can tell that people have spent a lot of time and money designing this night. Promoter Darren Laurie thinks that Glasgow has been missing this kind of club: ‘We haven't had a club with an attitude like this since the days when the Tunnel was at the top. It’s going to be a beautiful crowd In the most beautiful venue in Glasgow. The attitude is that we want the whole of the city’s funky crowd to congregate here.’

The many rooms of the Corinthian are being decked out. stately home-style, for a night that can be considered old-school in a real Glasgow sense. (Johnny Regan)
