Owner Juan José Castillo Castro has debuted his refurbished Superico Bar & Lounge at 99 Hanover Street, Edinburgh. It was due to debut in March but was delayed until last month because of COVID-19.
The new interior has nods to South American symbolism and geography with a pink and ochre colour scheme. A 2-metre-diametre Japanese paper supermoon glows from the centre of the room.
Said Juan, “We were due to open in late March, but obviously plans changed due to Covid-19. As a result we’ve had more time to develop our offering and capture the positive energy of our South American heritage.
“Despite having to operate slightly differently upon opening, with socially-distanced tables and table service only, we see it as a wonderful opportunity to get to know our guests better, and be able to give them a true Superico welcome and service.”
Juan José Castillo Castro also operates Superico Restaurant at 83 Hanover Street.
