House for an Art Lover

Situated in Bellahouston Park, only 10 minutes from Glasgow City Centre, House for an Art Lover, is a four star rated Tourist Board visitor attraction and a truly unique venue.

Designed by the famous Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, House for an Art Lover provides an excellent resource for visitors as a cultural attraction and tourist destination, whilst also being one of the city's finest wedding and event venues.

The Mackintosh Suite of rooms have been realised by contemporary artists and crafts people from the designs in the original portfolio, turning Mackintosh's vision into reality. Visitors can compare these original drawings against each completed room and also take a personal audio guide tour.

You can enjoy light refreshments or a meal from the a la carte or daily specials menu and during the summer months, al fresco dining is on the Cafe Terrace.

The Cafe Gallery is a contemporary programme of art exhibitions hosted by the Art Lovers Cafe throughout the year; these exhibitions can be viewed whilst you are dining, or you can pop in anytime within the Cafe opening hours for a look.


The Art Lovers' Shop offers a wide selection of Mackintosh-inspired products, alongside a variety of hand-crafted jewellery, home accessories and funky must have gifts. As the perfect destination to purchase that unique present, The Art Lovers Shop is open daily from 10am - 5pm.
