G&V’s G&Ts will be served on the secret terrace, hidden down a cobbled passage just off Edinburgh’s Royal Mile and is bidding to become the ‘social hub of the summer’.

The opening of G&V’s Tanqueray TEN Terrace comes amid a number of changes for the hotel.

Following the redesign of the hotel’s suites in 2015 by a number of leading Scottish artists and interior designers, the Cucina restaurant is currently undergoing a refurbishment by design duo Timorous Beasties, which is set to be completed by July 12.

November 2016 meanwhile will see the launch of a hot new bar for G&V, as well as a full refurbishment and redesign of the hotel’s ground-floor lobby.
