Media Release: Glamorous Edinburgh Festivals escape is back and better than ever!


NOW featuring at Number One on TripAdvisor, the Colonnades at Edinburgh’s Signet Library has extended opening hours for the Edinburgh Festivals season from today, Monday 3 August.

Following a £250,000 refurbishment to create one of Edinburgh’s most glamorous afternoon tea destinations, the newly-opened Colonnades will be serving many of the ‘Pommery Bar’ favourites during the month of August.

The menu will be expanded to include the popular whole lobster, Aberdeen Angus burger, sharing platters and Pommery Champagne seasonal tasting trays, as well as the five-star Colonnades signature afternoon tea.

Also back for 2015 are the sell-out Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo Dinner and Ticket packages which include a welcome drink, three-course dinner and a Tattoo ticket, from only £90 per person.

Colonnades is fast becoming the talk of the town, and its slot on TripAdvisor is testament to the superb levels of service, food and drink on offer.

Open seven days a week from Monday 3 August to Friday 4 September, the Signet Library is always the place to see and be seen in August, and now re-opened as Colonnades, it is even more stylish.
