I have a huge crush on A449 so welcome any work they do. And this looks very good.
You spoke too soon...I wonder how long Club Tropicana (former Subway West End) will be around for, given that Stereo on King Stables round is gone as well as other establishments nearby.
Then again, The Cavendish and the Citrus Club have survived thus far.
They did mention earlier last year they were planning to close, then dropped the plans.You spoke too soon...
The Citrus Club to close in May | Edinburgh Evening News - 09/04/17
http://pear-tree-house.co.uk/bar/business-as-usual/So what’s going on? Well, it’s something we’ve talked about doing for years. We’re opening up a lot of space in the bar area, including opening up a few original 18th Century features. It’s all going to look pretty spectacular, but very much in keeping with the building’s 268 year history of hosting the good folk of the Southside. Watch this space!
I notice it's your first post, so welcome. :wave:It was announced at the Brewdog AGM last weekend that Brewdog are to open a new venue in Edinburgh in the unit vacated by Clydesdale bank on Festival square.
Lothian Road is fast becoming craft beer central.
Answering my own question - they finally put up something on the front of the building. Interestingly, it's going to be a seafood and oyster bar:While we are on the topic - anyone noticed that the White Horse Bar on Canongate appears as if it hasn't opened in months? Not a great pub by any stretch of the imagination but not knowing its fate has me in suspense.
Posters now gone up for: https://www.facebook.com/CommercialQuay/, it's being done by the folks behind 43 Main Street in Glenrothes. Hopefully these guys can make a success out of it, the last few places don't seem to have had much luck which is a shame.Don't think it's been noted already but there is activity down at the old 'Leith Gallery' on the shore and apparently it will be opening as a cafe.
There is also activity ongoing at the units along Commercial Quay, in particular the unit between The Kitchen and the old Wolf and Water.
Yes I was at the AGM. There was no specific mention of closing the Cowgate location. As they currently have multiple sites in Aberdeen and London I suspect that they will operate two bars in Edinburgh.I notice it's your first post, so welcome. :wave:
Very interesting news indeed! Given that the Newington Fix plans crashed and burned this is a much better location for BrewDog.
Club Tropicana sticks out like a sore thumb on Lothian Road now, compared to 10-15 years ago, when something like BrewDog would have stuck out like sore thumb had it opened back then. :lol:
As a matter of interest, were you at the AGM/or do you happen to know if they plan on retaining or closing their current bar in the Cowgate, also any time frame for when Lothian Road bar will open?
