Scottish style, with a splash of speakeasy

The Barologist Edinburgh - restaurant entrance planting

The Barologist, Edinburgh | Rough Designs

Taking a look at some of our favourite bar projects recently , we noticed design elements that transported us back to the speakeasies of the 20’s.

Speakeasies have been the epitome of cool since the prohibition era in the roaring 1920’s. There’s just something about hidden, luxury drinking spots and sophisticated styling that is simply irresistable.

At all of these cosy hideaways guests can expect to be treated to a range of exquisite cocktails crafted by the genius bartenders. Where the crowd is intimate and the colour palettes are dark and rich - just like the woodwork. The atmosphere has a sprinkle of magic and lashings of creative mood lighting.

Lush, green foliage and floral walls look amazing in these settings, adding to the warmth and atmosphere. We love getting creative with designers on projects like these with our Hotel and Restaurant planting.

To enjoy these gems you won’t have to find a secret doorway, enter through a sliding bookcase, or have a password to hand….just grab a table, sit back, relax and enjoy!
