LOKS Bar and Kitchen

LOKS Bar and Kitchen is a family-founded bar and restaurant in Glasgow’s trendy Shawlands. The owners, Matthew Reilly and his son Philip, are long-standing clients of BSL, having worked with us on their many projects for over 20 years. They approached BSL with a shell of a building that was previously used as a sports social club. After engaging their own interior designer to directly address their brief, Matthew and Philip engaged BSL to carry out the construction and installation works. We managed the services team and engaged the architect knowing that our efforts and craftsmanship would be vital in establishing LOKS as one of the best venues in the south side of Glasgow.


Work began to extend, restructure and reshape the property, installing a glass-fronted extension as well as recladding the exterior. We installed all-new services and power, alongside a state-of-the-art service management system ensuring the owners had a system that was value for money and future-proof.


The installation work for the restaurant, bar and all interior fittings was carried out to the highest standard using only the best quality materials. All of the bespoke hardwood installations and finishes were produced by BSL in our own workshop facilities and installed on site by our expert craftsmen.


“I have known BSL for 20 years now. All their workmen have been there a long time and have worked on many of my premises. It’s always good to see them and they always do a fine job.” – Matthew Reilly
