The building was designed as a school for drama students, a purpose which it served until 2008 when the RSAMD moved to their new premises in nearby Renfrew Street. The building contained a theatre, billiard room, dining room and gymnasium.

After 2008, it operated for a few years as "Razzle Dazzle", a discount fashion and home store. In 2013 the building was converted to the Glasgow Hard Rock Cafe LinkExternal link .
