Tea with Charles Rennie MackintoshArchitects and designers, students of the pursuit or just anyone with an eye for great design: the name Charles Rennie Mackintosh probably is held in high esteem in your world.
The Glasgow architect and designer is celebrated around the world as one of the great creative minds. Glasgow has several Mackintosh designs, but The Willow Team Rooms is the spot where you can enjoy a meal, a cup of tea or the full-on Afternoon Tea experience.
Mackintosh designed The Willow Tea Rooms in 1904. If you go, make sure you make a reservation ahead of time and ask for the Room de Luxe, pictured here. Everything in the upstairs room -- from the cutlery, chairs and light fixtures to the servers outfits -- were designed by Mackintosh. There is another Willow Tea Room also designed by Mackintosh, but this is the spot to go.
Even if you don't do tea and cucumber sandwiches, if you appreciate good design and fancy a light meal at the same time, you can't go wrong with The Willow Tea Rooms.
