Whenever anyone mentions words like 'stylish', 'elegant' and 'opulent', our minds immediately think of Tigerlily. Based on George Street in New Town, the famous hotel-cum-restaurant-cum-bar is popular with the Edinburgh's a-listers and young crowds.
The venue holds two beautifully decorated bars, both of which are swamped with guests in their finest outfits on a Saturday night. Bursting with colour and offering a fresh feeling courtesy of the many flower pots and vases, every corner features an eye-catching piece of furniture or an intriguing permanent feature; one entire wall is covered in a mosaic of small mirrors, while another features a black and white mural.
The chefs in the kitchen maintain the venue's opulent feel with their menu of seasonal British dishes, including traditional Scotish recipes, fresh seafood and an incredible steak selection featuring cuts from the award winning butcher, John Davidson. Opening early at 8:30 AM, guests can enjoy breakfast, dinner and everything in between here.
But stealing the limelight is the bars drinks list. The mixologists use an arsenal of fine spirits, fresh fruits, exotic spices and eye-watering liqueurs to create a range of hand-crafted cocktails. Featuring both classic recipes and more contemporary creations, each drink twists and twirls a wonderful array of flavours together, creating well-balanced drinks that appeal to everyone, regardless of their tastes and preferences.
