Drake & Morgan – the group behind some of London’s favourite bars & restaurants including The Folly, The Fable, The Parlour and The Anthologist – will open its first bar & restaurant in Edinburgh this November.
The Refinery St Andrew Square, will bring a touch of glamour to the city´s drinking and dining scene with a stunning setting that is sure to delight locals and visitors alike. From replenishing breakfasts through to power business lunches, late-night dinners, cocktails, masterclasses and pop-ups, the new bar & restaurant will be an all-day escape for Edinburgh’s most discerning drinkers and diners.
Spread across two beautifully designed floors – visible through ground to ceiling glass windows – and separated by a show-stopping spiral staircase, guests will be greeted by a beautiful bar and casual dining area, with a statement back bar illuminating the various bottles of wine and spirits available. Towards the rear will be an intimate restaurant and open-plan kitchen with sit-at counter dining, bringing all of the action of the grill to diners who want a front row seat. Curiosity will almost certainly lead guests up the staircase to the restaurant’s library lounge where they’ll be able to sink into comfortable armchairs draped in fur. There will also be an al fresco terrace, complete with blankets and hot water bottles for year-round revelry.
The Refinery St Andrew Square will be keeping cocktails above the standards of even the most demanding connoisseurs, serving up seasonally inspired concoctions influenced by the latest global trends. The varied menu will have plenty to please. Small plates and mezze boards, ideal to share, will be available whilst larger mains – served from lunch to late – will come in the form of beautiful burgers such as the buttermilk chicken burger or wagyu beef burger. Superfood salads and classics such as hot smoked salmon with spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts; parmesan crusted chicken with soft polenta, blistered cherry tomatoes; and lamb chops with crushed new potatoes and mint jus are just a few examples of the dishes diners can expect to find. Those with a sweet tooth can indulge in a selection of moreish puddings.
Open seven days a week, The Refinery St Andrew Square’s opening will channel everything people have come to love of a Drake & Morgan bar & restaurant, while adding bold new touches across all aspects from the fantastic drink and food to the inspiring interiors, ready for the new Edinburgh scene.

About Drake & Morgan
Drake & Morgan is a stylish and contemporary collection of individual all-day bar and restaurants. Founded in September 2008, it has a portfolio of 10 bars and restaurants in landmark sites across London. Sites include The Refinery at Bankside, The Parlour at Canary Wharf, The Refinery Regent’s Place and four City sites: The Happenstance, The Folly, The Anthologist and The Fable. The group has most recently opened Drake & Morgan at King’s Cross in 2015 and and The Commission at Heathrow T4 this summer. Whilst all venues are open for breakfast through to supper and cocktails and offer a variety of flexible eating/drinking spaces and private areas, each is unique, operating independently with clearly defined offers and customised site-specific experiences.
