EDINBURGH’S ULTIMATE WHISKY BAR SET TO OPEN AT THE SCOTCH MALT WHISKY SOCIETY
The Society’s 28 Queen Street venue will be closed in July for a major makeover with the new whisky bar set to open in August
Whisky fans in Edinburgh and visiting the city are in for a treat in August with the news that The Scotch Malt Whisky Society (SMWS) is to launch a new whisky bar, as part of a major refurbishment of its 28 Queen Street venue.
The 28 Queen Street venue has closed its doors for July as the £300,000 building project progresses on the new bar, which will open on 1st August.
The new bar will be unique because of its constantly changing menu of whisky flavours; the Society releases a new selection of its rare single cask single malt whiskies every month, providing guests with a kaleidoscope of whisky flavours to explore. A limited range of extremely rare proprietary whiskies carefully selected for the SMWS by a special guest curator will also be available at the bar.
As part of the refurbishment project, the new bar will take pride of place on the ground floor of the Georgian townhouse venue at 28 Queen Street, visible and accessible from street level.
The Dining Room restaurant, previously on the ground floor, will move upstairs to the first floor and be expanded to include features such as a Charles Heidsieck champagne table.
A new shop area is also being established, while two new private lounges are also being created for the Society’s members.
The venue will host a free open house event on 5th August – more details can be found here: https://www.smws.com/qs-open-house
