Virgin Hotel in Glasgow

Red FAB5 minibars featured in hotel rooms

Last week saw the grand opening of Scotland’s second Virgin Hotel, in Glasgow. Virgin Hotels Edinburgh opened in 2022, making the two Scottish hotels the only two Virgin Hotels outside of the US.

Like Smeg, at the heart of Virgin Hotels is design and detail. Smeg Foodservice UK delivered 242 of our red minibar fridges, creating a pop of colour and fitting beautifully within one section of the unique two-chamber bedrooms.

Minimal noise is guaranteed by the cooling process of these minibars, ensuring a good night’s sleep! The optimal insulation and temperature control mean that energy consumption is kept to a minimum, ensuring low running costs and maximum respect for the environment.

The FAB5 minibar perfectly blends into any environment. The minibar fridge featured in the Virgin Hotel in Glasgow comes with an adjustable thermostat, a bottle rack and snack compartment in the door, internal LED lighting and easy-to-clean surface.

Small but mighty, the compact size contains all the design features and performance characteristics needed for the hospitality sector.

Becoming a member of Virgin Hotels ‘The Know’ loyalty program, will see your Smeg minibar fridge stocked with all of your favourite beverages throughout your stay! Who wouldn’t want a personalized stay with a Nightly Hosted Cocktail Hour?

See the Virgin Website for more details.
