Lady Libertine opens her doors within The Edinburgh Grand

By January 24, 2019


Hotel residence, The Edinburgh Grand, has added a further art deco inspired bar and dining experience with the launch of Lady Libertine, giving guests more opportunity to submerse themselves in the building’s 1930s grandeur.

Serving late night cocktails and wine, live music and food in beautifully designed surroundings, Lady Libertine, open from 8am until 3am, also provides a convenient place for breakfast for guests staying in the 50-apartment five-star hotel located in one of Edinburgh’s most majestic Georgian-built city centre squares.

With contemporary black and white decor, flashes of chrome combined with traditional wood finishes, two bars, a coffee and wine lounge and brasserie, Lady Libertine is split across two floors with capacity to seat 150. 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 flavoursome 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, which is operated by Lateral City Apartments, 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.”

Gavin added:

“The Edinburgh Grand has been open for just over six months and in that time we have exceeded our guests’ expectations. Many are frequent visitors, choosing to stay with us when they’re in the city.

“The fact that Lady Libertine is now open and caters for our visitors’ needs by providing breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night drinks and entertainment on their doorstep, is very much a welcome addition and sets us apart from any other establishment in Edinburgh.”
