Patron Saint to open in Bruntsfield

Francesco Castro

A new bar and restaurant, Patron Saint is set to open in Bruntsfield this May.

An all-day dining menu overseen by head chef Francesco Castro, previously of the Glentress Hotel will feature casual dishes and brunch items that showcase hyperlocal suppliers like Modern Standard and La Barantine; both a stone's throw away from the venue.

The drinks menu includes classic cocktails, rotational beers, wines and spirits from Royal Mile Whiskies, Inverarity Morton and New Wave Beer. There are also Bloody Mary and 'non-alc' menus.

Patron Saint is owned by Lucky Number Seven Holdings, the brains behind The Cocktail Mafia and The Raging Bull.

The 58-cover site has an interior of clashing patterns, colours and textures that are reminiscent of stepping into an Alice in Wonderland tea party. The family and dog-friendly space has little nooks and alcoves and there is also an outdoor courtyard to enjoy the warmer weather.

Nick Madigan, Managing Director of Lucky Number Seven Holdings said:

“I love Bruntsfield, it is one of my favourite places in the city, so it made sense to open our third venue in the area. Our aim for Patron Saint is for it to be a home away from home, a place to bring your family, friends and pets for a casual, relaxed dining or drinking experience. We look forward to meeting the locals and becoming part of the community”.
“I wanted the bar to be warm and comfortable but also stylish and exciting. When we decided on the name Patron Saint which takes its namesake from the church next door, we sourced antique pieces that we thought would fit well with the vibrant modern style.”
