Encore Edinburgh – lavish new cocktail bar and lounge debuts. So what is it like?
Encore Edinburgh has opened on Hope Street in Edinburgh, beneath the bustling Parisian-style West End Brasserie restaurant. The new late-night speakeasy provides a sexy and exciting ambiance with refined performance nights where guests can escape the realm and experience a new level of merriment.
The cocktail menu honours the vibrant and magnificent Bohemian style of Paris. The colourful, theatrical cocktails evoke the sumptuous, lavish flair of one of the most iconic Parisian districts offering a place of extravagance and richness. Encore Edinburgh brings together everything sophisticated lifestyle entertainment in one amazing location, complete with small plates, cocktails, performance, and music for pure, unadulterated enjoyment.
The flamboyant interior creations take inspiration from Paris’s Moulin Rouge and La République district. As you enter, guests are immediately dazzled by a certain ‘Je Ne Sais Quoi’ lighting installation in the entrance hall and the bar lounge features chic red velvet sofas, rich textile upholstery. Each group table is a booth, and each booth is both romantic and sumptuous, with “Press for Cocktails” buttoned-booths and mini TV screens offering an exceptional vibe mixed in with retro decorations. If you’re looking for something extra special, these sexy booths are the place to be seen when you want to pull out the wow factor. The bouji venue also features a quirky photo booth for guests to capture their experience.
