Le Monde celebrates new era


Glendola knows the value of continued re-investment. It has just re-opened Le Monde’s ground floor bar and restaurant after a
£1M refurbishment – the biggest in the hotel’s 13-year history. Billy Lowe sold the 18-room hotel to Glendola in 2015.

The George Street hotel’s refurbishment includes the introduction of a new semi-circular champagne bar complete with marble bar top, crimson leather bar stools, and velvet booths.

A newly tiled marble herringbone walkway leads guests through to the light-filled main bar and restaurant space. The re-design likewise showcases the building’s Georgian architecture.

Darren Scott joined the venue in early 2019 as General Manager to oversee the refurbishment and manage operations, while Mike Caldwell has joined as Bar Manager.

Said Darren Scott, “Le Monde has been a favourite venue in the heart of Edinburgh for many years now, and we’ve taken that wonderful idea of a trip to exciting places around the globe and reinvented it for modern customers. The newly refurbished bar and restaurant areas are simply stunning.”
