Edinburgh Slug and Lettuce reopens after £800k refurbishment

The George Street venue of the popular pub chain has reopened with a stylish new look.

Published: July 14, 2021

Following an investment of over £800,000, Slug and Lettuce George Street has reopened – with a complete refurbishment throughout.

The venue now has a glamorous second bar, an interior of bright and bold botanical prints, neon hues, plush velvet fabrics and flashes of gold throughout.

There's striking birdcage booths decorated with cherry blossom - a seating spot that's sure to be popular on Instagram.

A dedicated cocktail masterclass station will offer customers the chance to immerse themselves in interactive cocktail-making classes.

On the cocktail menu, there's favourites such as Pornstar and Espresso Martinis to Brambles and the classic Mojito.

For those looking for a weekend of food and drink, the bar will also play host to a boozy brunch.

Diners can expect a vibrant disco theme, with a soundtrack of either Lady Gaga, Beyonce or the Spice Girls.

Customers can choose from delicious dishes that include pornstar pancakes, eggs Florentine and American-style pancakes, paired with Prosecco, Mimosas, Aperol Spritz, Amstel, Bloody Marys or Virgin Marys.

"We have completely changed the structural layout and have even installed a second bar.

"Customers will love the results of the refurbishment; it’s got such a luxurious feel to it.
