About this space

This striking gold, multifunctional room offers an elegant historical backdrop suitable for a board meeting, a sophisticated dinner, or a canape reception.

As your guests enter through the impressive main staircase surrounded by portraits of Enlightenment greats, they’ll be greeted by antique furniture and large windows opening onto Edinburgh’s iconic George Street. This space also includes two additional adjoining rooms – perfect for a coffee station, a space for a private call, or acting as a separate entryway, as needed.
