Ever wondered what lies behind the doors of 185 Bath Street? Steeped in culture and heritage, Glasgow Art Club has long been a private meeting place for generations of the city’s most innovative and creative inhabitants. Now, we are giving you the chance to see behind the scenes of one of Glasgow’s best kept secrets! Let our friendly and knowledgeable guides take you through the building to give you a fascinating insight into the history of Glasgow Art Club and its collections. In 1893 two adjacent town houses on Bath Street were transformed by architects Honeyman & Keppie, employing Charles Rennie Mackintosh, into the magnificent Clubhouse which stands today. The Grade A-Listed Clubhouse is resplendent with historically significant interior features – many of which were designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh when he was but 25 years old. Recent extensive refurbishment with substantial financial aid from The Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Scotland with generous contributions from private donors, has resulted in restoration of the Club’s large Gallery to its original Victorian splendour. Take a tour of The Glasgow Art Club and see the Charles Rennie Mackintosh frieze in the Main Gallery.
