With roots tracing back to 1844, Citation's storied past infuses it with a vibrant rustic charm. Originally constructed as the Sheriff Court building by Clarke & Bell in the mid-19th century, its breathtaking architectural features were thoughtfully preserved during a redevelopment 160 years later. The exterior, graced by imposing sandstone columns, retains its distinctive B-listed character, accentuated by the gentle glow of fairy lights, creating an enchanting ambiance.

In the present day, Citation stands as a versatile venue for exclusive events of various styles. Whether it's a dreamlike wedding, a top-tier fundraiser, or an unforgettable celebration, our historic setting provides the perfect backdrop for your special moments. A true Scottish gem.

The Taverne Bar is your go-to destination for a delightful pre-dinner drink or a relaxed post-dining experience at the Merchant Suite. But it's not just about formalities - this space transforms into an exciting spot where you can dance into the late hours. With features like a DJ Box, ambient colour-shifting LED lights, a grand piano, and all the necessary in-house tech for speeches, it's designed to cater to your every need. The versatile space of The Merchant Suite exudes brightness and charm, boasting a dedicated bar, a private heated balcony, and wall-mounted screens for your presentation or award ceremony needs. Its classic ambiance is enhanced by exposed blonde sandstone and timeless wooden floors, making it suitable for a wide range of occasions, from formal events to engaging presentations. Whether you're planning a panel discussion with theatre-style seating or an upscale post-conference dinner, the Merchant Suite provides a spacious and inviting setting for your unique event.

Looking for some fun? Explore the diverse range of events at Citation. Dive into an evening filled with drama, fine dining, and a generous helping of mystery, enjoy a glass of prosecco, relish a three-course dinner, and sip on wine while you take on the challenge of unveiling the perpetrator behind a truly sinister murder!
