EDINBURGH’S Basement Bar has been relaunched following a three-week refurbishment.

The interior of the Mexican-themed bar and restaurant, which is owned by Signature Pub Group, was overhauled by designer Adam Tibbatts, who also worked on Signature’s Rutland Hotel.
The new look includes bright timber panels and shutters, and ‘Day of the Dead’ images.
“We tried to be true to its original form but working with local artists, developing bespoke furniture and lighting,” said Tibbatts.
“We feel that we enhanced and brought the ‘original’ venue back to life.”
