Curry King Launches Slumdog Into Event Space

Curry King Charan Gill MBE has launched Slumdog, the popular restaurant that opened in Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street last winter, into event space.

Slumdog’s opening marked Mr Gill’s return to Glasgow’s culinary scene following the sale of his Harlequin Restaurant empire. Having opened its doors to the public as a bar and kitchen, the venue has since become renowned as a popular venue for corporate and social events.

Mr Gill has since identified a market need in Glasgow for an events space with a difference and has created a new private dining room, separate from the main restaurant, at Slumdog. This room has already become extremely popular for corporate board meetings, round table dinners, small networking events and sales presentations. It is also available for small private dinners, whether corporate or family events.

One of Scotland’s most prolific entrepreneurs and business role models Mr Gill said, “Slumdog has found a niche in the market playing host to small and medium sized corporate events and private parties. Therefore, to better reflect the focus for much of our activities, we have now rebranded the venue as a restaurant and event space.

“Many businesses are using Slumdog due to the versatility of the space, the city centre location, an excellent sound system, free Wi-Fi and PowerPoint presentation facility. The menu is varied and unique and so much better than the boring menus in most hotels. Slumdog can now provide the ideal event space for anyone planning a small private dinner or a medium sized conference or business presentation.”

Slumdog Event Space has already been used by many organisations for a variety of functions including: a post budget analysis for Baker Tilly Accountants; a PSYBT dinner; The Power Lunch Club and a Prince and Princess of Wales charity lunch.

Slumdog is located at 410 Sauchiehall Street. Telephone 0141 333 9933 for more details.
