Rusk & Rusk closes doors of So LA

GLASGOW restaurant group Rusk & Rusk has announced that its So LA venue on the city’s Mitchell Street is to remain closed “until further notice”.

So LA opened on Glasgow’s Mitchell Street late last year and is now closed.

James and Louise Rusk – the husband and wife team behind the business, who also operate Glasgow’s Butchershop Bar & Grill, The Spanish Butcher and Hutchesons venues – opened So LA, a 150-cover restaurant, bar and events space, late last year.

However, after having to close the venue for essential maintenance this week, the couple said: “We’ve been reflecting on So LA’s future and it’s with sadness that we’ve made the hard decision to remain closed until further notice.

“When we opened So LA, we took the opportunity to bring something new and unique to Glasgow, and while we’ve grown a loyal following, the reality is that our concept is not working.

“We will be making a decision on the future of the venue this week.”
