The Hutchesons’ Hall in Glasgow has been extensively and tastefully refurbished by Glasgow Restauranteur James Rusk owner of the Butchershop.
This iconic Grade A-listed building on Ingram Street has been transformed into an exciting three floor dining destination, providing the best of Scottish food and drink with outstanding service, and character.
Positioned prominently between the city centre and Merchant city, Hutchesons has a bustling brasserie serving premium Scotch steaks and seafood set within the vibrant ambiance of our grand hall, while a classic café bar can be discovered at street level to enjoy breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea by day and specialist cocktails and champagnes by night.
The Hutchesons’ Hall in Ingram street in Glasgow was constructed in the early 1800’s by Scottish Architect David Hamilton, built with the monies left by brothers George and Thomas Hutcheson with the purpose of building a hosiptal for the elderly and a school for poor boys. The Schools continues to this day in the form of Hutchesons’ Grammer School.
In 1876, the building underwent extensive refurbishment under the supervision of architect John Baird the building was heightened and the feature staircase added at the west end of the building.
Having lain empty since 2008, the newly refurbished Hutchesons opens its doors to the public this summer providing traditional European catering to Glasgow from dawn ’til dusk.
The recent refurbishment as you can see from the images has created a exclusive unique dining experience by maintaining and featuring the historical interiors. The restaurant lighting controls maintain a lighting installation which is extensively dimmable LED installed by Daziel Services, with controls by Mode Lighting and commissioning by Lighting Control. The system is zoned into a number of isolated control zones allowing timed scenes to be subtly recalled to follow the mode of the room throughout the evening.
