Hotel apartments, The Edinburgh Grand, has opened the doors to the Lady Libertine, a new bar and dining experience run in partnership with the Bon Vivant Group.
The 50-apartment, 1930’s inspired property in the Scottish capital launched to market six months ago and is operated by Lateral City Apartments.
Now the hotel residence has opened Lady Libertine, which will serve late night cocktails and wine, live music and food, split across two floors with capacity to seat 150 guests.
The new space has been designed with contemporary black and white decor, flashes of chrome combined with traditional wood finishes, two bars, a coffee and wine lounge and brasserie.
Occupying part of the basement of the building, which was once a bank headquarters, Lady Libertine also offers private dining in one of the original walk-in safes.
Its menu has a strong Persian, North African and Mediterranean influence with slow cooked meats, pulses, citrus and exotic spices packing a punch.
Lady Libertine is the second venue operated by The Bon Vivant Group in The Edinburgh Grand, and shares the building with its sibling The Register Club cocktail bar and the London-originated Hawksmoor steak restaurant.
Gavin MacLennan, general manager of The Edinburgh Grand, said: “We are redefining the hotel model with our offer of apartments alongside best in class food and drink operators, all within an amazing building. Working with The Bon Vivant Group is part of that vision and we’re delighted the company opened a second venue within The Edinburgh Grand, catering for guests and visitors who are looking for somewhere that’s different and beautiful.”
The Edinburgh Grand is Lateral City Apartments’ newest property and is part of Chris Stewart Group’s Registers development, a regeneration and redevelopment project which is set to transform a corner of St Andrew Square.
The hotel has been transformed from the former global headquarters of RBS, and is also home to The Register Club on the fourth floor.
London-based Hawksmoor is a 170-cover restaurant in the former banking hall.
