The New Bar Everyone’s Talking About

Cold Town House Roof Terrace

Scottish Hospitality Group, Signature Pubs, has announced the launch of a new bar and brewery opening this month in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket.

The former Robertson Memorial Church has been given a make-over worth £4m converting it into a showstopping rooftop terrace and bar, The Cold Town House, with spectacular views of Scotland’s iconic capital.

Drinks are served from a funky, vintage Citroen van and guests can enjoy the capital’s breathtaking views from a cosy ski gondola. Even though the original design of the building has been kept, the interior has been remodelled to create the most stylish space to sip and socialise.

The Cold Town House is set to offer live entertainment from musicians and comedians as well as live sport, a delicious cocktail menu and even a fire pit to cosy beside when Scottish summer fails to live up to expectations…

This exciting new venue also marks the return of brewing to the Grassmarket, a tradition dating back to the 16th Century. The first floor of the building is dedicated to brewing itself and with the the brewing process is displayed for everyone to see. They have also incorporated booth seating and rotating windows to give guests the ultimate brewery experience.

Signature Pubs seem to have incorporated their signature beer into just about everything including the menu. The bar’s pizza dough is fermented using Cold Town Beer for 24 hours before it’s baked in a custom made pizza oven from Naples. Vegetarian and vegan options will also be on offer ensuring that there is something for everyone.
