The Signet Library, just off the Royal Mile in Edinburgh is the location of a new pop-up Pommery champagne bar which is open for the duration of the Festival.
It will now be open to the public as well as the legal eagles. The venue is usually used exclusively for the legal fraternity although it is hired out for private events, and during the three weeks the bar is open guests will be able to view its lovely interior. But some are not too pleased. Donald Findlay QC told Scotland on Sunday, “I’m utterly appalled and scandalised at the suggestion. This is the slippery slope we’re on now. The next thing they will be doing is carry-out pizzas and selling hamburgers.”
The Pommery Champagne Bar will be at the Signet Library until the 29th August and is also serving seafood.
