Encore is the latest venture from hospitality group Caledonian Heritable, whose property portfolio includes Edinburgh landmark The Dome, luxury golf and spa resort Archerfield House, and multi-award winning nightclub Why Not Club and Rose Street Gardens in Edinburgh City Centre.

Encore will offer a signature menu of Scottish and French classics from Beef Carpaccio to French onion soup dumplings and Charcuterie to share.

The flamboyant interior will take inspiration from Paris’s Moulin Rouge and La République district with chic red velvet sofas, rich textile upholstery and uniquely, every group table is a booth.

Caledonian Heritable Area Manager, Jay Glass said:

“We are thrilled to bring this exciting new concept to Edinburgh’s West End. Encore complements our beautiful Brasserie upstairs, and I believe it will be a welcome addition to the city. We recognise how important the experience is to our visitors, from the warm welcome to our show-stopping cocktails, rotating guest DJs and live performances, we want to WOW! our guests and make it a night to remember no matter what the occasion. Our talented team has come up with an incredible food and drinks menu that we think people will love and we are really excited to share this with everyone from the 1st of December”.
