Eastside - George Street - But Not As You Know It


New Edinburgh launch, Eastside is shaking up the usual George Street offering with an alternative late night music and street food venue. Introducing a casual vibe with fun festival atmosphere, the indoor street food is in collaboration with the likes of celebrity chef Tony Singh along with pool tables, guest DJ
sets and live music until 3am.

An easy-going; dance-where-you-stand, collaborative space suitable for chilled after work drinks as much as late night dancing fuelled by dumplings courtesy of ‘Yumpling Dumpings’ and other delicious street food vendors, Eastside is a fresh and contemporary addition to the usual George Street scene. Located within the basement of refurbished former auction house, Lyon and Turnbull, the concrete, raw brick and stone combined with Marmolium tiles and exposed air con gives a rustic but effortlessly stylish edge completely devoid of it’s former existence. Cool and contemporary with a nod to the industrial, Eastside has individual bespoke areas which cater for different needs and give it the much sought after house party vibe.

With General Manager, Ben Greig and Bar Manager, Andrew Mackie at the helm, collectively with over 20 years unparalleled industry experience and local market knowledge; they ensure drinks are always premium, the food is top quality and the experience unrivalled. The concept venue is a different kind of bar
for George Street and they aim to smoothly integrate whilst maintaining their unique identity within the market.

Ben comments, "We pride ourselves on truly understanding the wants of our customers and trends within the market both locally and globally. People have fallen out of love with the traditional bar scene and the rise in popularity for hybrid, social spaces that allow dancing, drinking, eating and conversation to
happen under the one roof is what our target demographic are looking for. Eastside is somewhere to meet after work, listen to good music and as the night progresses, a place to party and stay refuelled on fantastic food until 3am.”

Inspired by festivals and informed by the new wave of fusion social spaces, Eastside offers delicious premium food and drinks, intimate and stylishly paired-back interiors along with the opportunity to enjoy great music late into the night.

Eastside, 51A George St, Edinburgh EH2 2HT. 0131 226 2275
