Refurbishment of Harry’s Bar Near Completion

Posted on July 6, 2015 by admin

Work is progressing well on our refurbishment of Harry’s Bar in Edinburgh’s West End for Shilling Group, with a planned re-opening later this month. The dated ‘whole in the wall’ basement bar is being completely stripped back internally to increase ceiling heights, and reveal original brick and stone walls. The layout has been reorganised to make better use of the space, whilst visual connections with the outside are enhanced by the removal of a porch at the front and by forming new glass doors out to the re-landscaped beer garden to the rear. We look forward to having drinks in the sun!
