George Street venue sees its’ biggest change in 16 years

Tigerlily Edinburgh has re-opened after a full bar and restaurant refit and makeover. Designer Jim Hamilton, who oversaw work here in 2015 and 2006, once again worked his design magic on Tigerlily. The internal layout has remained the same, the rear area has been opened up and raised to create a new staged vantage point for customers overlooking the central bar and beyond.

Jim Hamilton comments, “we have created a strong social wrap around series of booths that interact very closely with the performance aspect of the bar and introduce new brighter, optimistic and colourful elements into the mix. Within this, there will be a perfect blend of iconic furniture and lighting, contemporary Scottish artwork, interesting materials and bespoke locally crafted products that will shape the style and essence of Tigerlily.”

As well as the visual experience of Tigerlily, all elements are being revived from tech updates in the 33 hotel rooms to an entirely new menu of contemporary food and drink which Group Exec Chef Tony Sarton says, “will be even more visually stunning and served with elements of theatre and flair.”

The renovation of Tigerlily is part of a wider plan for the Montpeliers Group which is seeking to refurbish another 4 of their 7 venues by April 2023; Lulu, Indigo Yard, Candy Bar & Kitchen and Montpeliers of Bruntsfield with Eastside and Rabble Taphouse & Grill being the most recent additions to the brand’s portfolio of popular Edinburgh destinations.
