It’s a merry go round at Picardy Place. A new company, the Edinburgh New Town Company, is now operating the boutique hotel, which goes under the name Twelve Picardy Place Hotel. The building also houses a new bar, Twelve Bar & Lounge, Steak Restaurant, a wine vault and outside terrace.
The new hotel is located in the former home of Mark Greenaway’s who left the business in November, a year after buying Barrie Brown out, and after spending £250K on developing seven luxury bedrooms at the premises. He has not yet re-appeared on the dining scene, but is said to be opening a new larger restaurant soon.
Michele Civiera a Director of the the Edinburgh New Town Company and Steak, said “Following the opening of our highly successful restaurant Steak Edinburgh on Picardy Place, we are delighted to announce the takeover of No.12 Picardy Place which heralds a new and exciting chapter for our new brand. This is a very exciting time for us indeed.”
Barrie Brown (pictured) is also involved in the new venture.
