SCOTLAND’S first restaurant and events space dedicated to Californian dining culture has opened its doors to diners.

The award-winning team behind, The Butchershop Bar & Grill, Hutchesons City Grill, and The Spanish Butcher, today unveiled their latest addition to Glasgow’s restaurant scene - So LA.

According to owners, James and Louise Rusk, the venue at 43 Michell Street, which boasts a subterranean events space, is inspired by the ‘vibrancy and diversity’ of the West coast drinking and dining scene.
