Edinburgh's House of Gods shares an exclusive first look of its new restaurant, Casablanca Cocktail Club, opening September 16

It doesn’t get much more glam than this venue

Published: August 19, 2021

“We wanted to create a truly hedonistic dining experience, “ says Mike Baxter, owner of Edinburgh’s House of Gods, when describing this hotel’s new Casablanca Cocktail Club restaurant. Opening on September 16, this space is inspired by the LA club scene and will feature mirrored ceilings, neon lighting, plush fabrics, and dishes including a 24-carat gold wagyu burger and scallop chicken wings marinated in Dom Perignon. There will also be a DJ spinning house and funk tracks until the wee hours. “Think the coolest wedding you’ve ever been to,” says Baxter. Definitely not for those who prefer a quiet night in to watch Changing Rooms.
