The location of the original tearoom that Mackintosh designed and furnished in the early 20th century for restaurateur Kate Cranston was undergoing extensive work at the time of research and will reopen as an authentic reconstruction in 2018 or 2019. You'll be able to relive the original splendour while admiring the architect's distinctive touch in just about every element; he had a free rein and even the teaspoons were given his attention. Other reconstructions operate as tearooms further down Sauchiehall St and on Buchanan St.

There's a Mackintosh gift shop here too.
