Burnet, Boston and Carruthers, dated 1905 (1904-07). Baroque.
7 storeys, 7 bays commercial building through 2nd to 5th
floors (4th at centre). Ashlar, channelled at 1st floor.
Canted and centre bays centre light, the top floor with Doric
aedicule pilasters, tripartite window with arched head and
sculpted tympanum above in outer bays, raised with
balustraded parapet. 2 entrances with blocked pilasters,
keystones and consoled, segmental pedimented doorpieces. 2

4th; Roman Doric pilastered and swagged windows in central 5
bays 5th and 6th floors.
INTERIOR: carved detail in entrance lobby. Wrought-iron
panels over door and to lift. Delicate wrought-iron stair
balustrade with floral motif. Additional decorative
wrought-iron panels at entrances to the Gordon Public House
and the Imperial Billiards Hall.
Cost £32,000. A good example of the work of Burnet, Boston & Carruthers, who are perhaps best known for their prolific tenemental output which shaped large parts of the city around the turn of the 20th century. This distinctive Baroque building is well-detailed and adds significantly to the character of the streetscape.
10 Mitchell Lane contains Bar 10, with an interior designed in 1991 by the renowned design practice, Ben Kelly Design. Kelly achieved recognition for his innovative work in 1982 at the Hacienda Nightclub in Manchester. One of Glasgow's first 'style bars', the interior of Bar 10 mixes a variety of materials with primary colours, making reference to the city's industrial heritage.
