Watering Hole

A Scottish style all of its own

Alongside The Printing Press restaurant, you have the welcoming Printing Press Bar, a late-night beacon of hospitality that exudes elegance. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, but the Bar was the winner of Cocktail Hotel Bar of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2019. Here we have a collection of local spirits from single malts to Edinburgh gin and even Scottish vodka. Cocktail masterclasses are available for the adventurous guest who loves to learn about the local tipples.

Monday to Sunday             12 noon till late

Intercontinental Edinburgh The George remains temporarily closed, but we look forward to welcoming guests back soon.

Our sister-hotel, Kimpton Charlotte Square, a 5 minute walk away, will be opening on 15 July and will be happy to welcome you.

The safety and wellbeing of our guests and colleagues is our top priority, and ready for when we reopen to the public,
we have implemented new hygiene procedures above and beyond our standard protocols,
as well as social distancing measures, in line with government and public health advice.

We've also introduced the IHG Clean Promise giving guests extra reassurance. Find out more at www.ihg.com/clean
