The Lockhouse Bar and Restaurant in Glasgow opened its doors on 11th July. The new bar, at 1397 Maryhill Road, was formerly the Elephant & Bugle and is now being leased out by Iona to Antonine Ltd.
Owner and General Manager, Steven Beattie, says, “We wanted to bring the ‘west end’ to Maryhill Road. There is a massive gap in the market and the demographic of the area is different from what it used to be.”
The £200k development now has an upstairs restaurant area which can accommodate 70 seaters and a downstairs bar which can host 50. The addition of modern silver bar tops, Chesterfield inspired leather curved booths and the bursts of grey on the walls are reminiscent of a typical New York style grill. The stairway to the dining area is accompanied with black and white photographs on the walls of famous Glasgow landmarks and locals, including a portrait of Maryhill-born Trainspotting star Robert Carlisle.
Steven continues, “The Lockhouse will be offering live music and cabaret shows as well as other different nights as we want to aim at a huge range of clientele.”
