When hotel group Ovolo announced they'd be taking over and re-launching the New Inchcolm Hotel we expected some seriously cool revamping, but the result is next level.
The boutique hotel was unveiled earlier last week, giving us our first glance of the rich timbers and arched windows that hallmark the Inchcolm’s new look. Besides the obvious excitement surrounding the foxy interior, Ovolo have injected even more 1920s glamour and hospitality into the project with art deco bar and restaurant, Salon de Co.
Their brief was to create a space feasibly inhabited by the ghosts of Stein and Hemingway—and we reckon they’ve pretty much nailed it. Salon de Co is part lounge, part bistro, luxuriously furnished and boasting a ‘Cabinet of Curiosity’ beneath the harlequin bar displaying the Inchcolm’s historical oddities.
In it you’ll find all kinds of artefacts to gawk at, which sure beats fidgeting with a coaster while you wait for a bartender to fix you a Sidecar.
The restaurant, headed by chef Anthony Hales, promises diners a lavish repast of creative, contemporary plates to match the jazzy 20s vibes, and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. so get down there ASAP and see what all the jive is about.
