Glasgow is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the birth of internationally-acclaimed architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh and here at Gordon Street Coffee, we are joining in the best way we know – with a new coffee blend!
We’re sure that Mackintosh would appreciate our unique way of commemorating his birthday. The Charles Rennie Mackintosh blend is a well-balanced coffee that has a smooth chocolatey taste with delicious notes of red cherries and walnuts.
And once you have enjoyed a cup of the new blend, you should get out and discover some of Mackintosh’s magnificent work and check out his CRM society website for a full list of events.
Within walking distance of Gordon Street Coffee is The Lighthouse in Michell lane. The Lighthouse is an ideal place to start your Charles Rennie Mackintosh knowledge with their interpretation centre. It’s also worth a visit for the stunning view over the city rooftops.
The Daily Record building can also be found tucked away down Renfield a mere street away from Gordon Street Coffee.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum are holding an exhibition titled “Charles Rennie Mackintosh: Making the Glasgow Style” until 14th August 2018. There are around 250 objects on view in this fascinating display. The exhibition is ticketed however you can buy tickets on the day at Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum.
Another place to see the work of Mackintosh is The Hunterian at the University of Glasgow. Here you can visit the re-assembled Mackintosh house. The house has, not only original pieces of furniture from the Mackintosh’s own home, but also is a faithful re-assembly of the entire building featuring staircase, front door and all!
