Glasgow Poker Club Up For Sale

Glasgow Poker Club Up For Sale

Tuesday, 18 November 2014

The first specialist poker club to open in Scotland is up for sale. The Cincinnati Club in the Tradeston area of the city closed its door earlier this year and now owner Soteris Ioannou has put the venue on the market for £280,000.

The club opened in 2005 with veteran pro Dave Colclough cutting the proverbial ribbon. It wasn't all plain sailing though, with police carrying out a raid on the venue in 2006 after it was claimed that poker tournaments ran foul of illegal gaming laws.

According to the Glasgow Times, the opening of a nearby casino had hit traffic at the club, prompting the the 120-seat venue's closure.

Michael Sim of property firm Christie and Co told the paper, "The property is currently closed but has previously operated as a successful poker club and late-night entertainment venue. Situated on a busy thoroughfare, this superb property can lend itself to a wide range of businesses, particularly restaurants due to its location and internal theme."
