Sometimes simpler is just better. For instance, when an estate agent lists a flat as being near to Angel, Old Street and Farringdon tubes, you know for a fact that it’s actually in the middle of nowhere. The same with hotels, which are also bars, restaurants and clubs. You’re trying to do too much and you’re not doing any of them right! Well actually, Tigerlily, Edinburgh is here to prove you wrong. Tigerlily is all of these things. And they are all amazing. The bar is a decedent mix of printed fabrics, fresh flowers, large mirrors and cloud shaped lights. The restaurant features chainmail curtain booths and candle light, not to mention an afternoon tea to die for, and the hotel, which features chocolate covered gingersnaps and GHD straightners as standard (it is Edinburgh after all. I guarantee you it will rain…) is heaven on earth.
And just because it’s totally awesome in every way, it doesn’t mean it’s bank-breaking. With offers (and puns) such as “Wine Down” or “It’s Friday and everything’s rosé”, there’s no excuse to not stop for a quick one, or 10. Or a weekend. And yes this place may appeal to girls slightly more than boys, but surely he’d treat you if he loved you?
