Yotel to open Glasgow hotel with rooftop bar and bowling alley

Yotel is set to open a hotel in Glasgow with a rooftop bar and bowling alley as part of its European expansion.

The new 256-bedroom city centre property will open in November 2019, the brand's fifth UK property, as part of its target to open 60 hotels by 2023 and its strategic partnership with Starwood Capital.

The affordable hotel group's latest property will transform the Westergate building on Argyle Street, and will be designed by Glasgow-based architects Mosaic Architecture + Design.

Yotel chief executive Hubert Viriot said: "Glasgow is a forward-looking city that has real vibrancy and energy, bolstered by careful planning and investment initiatives. The city is building on its excellent infrastructure and is shaping up to be a world-class business destination.

"These were all important characteristics that helped us choose Glasgow as our next UK location and we're excited to be part of the positive momentum that is driving growth in the city."

Tim Abram, vice president at Starwood Capital Group, added: "Following the announcement of Yotel Edinburgh in 2017, this is a very exciting next step in our strategic partnership with Yotel… We are also incredibly excited to be creating Glasgow's first rooftop F&B destination which will include a bowling alley."
