Artist in Residence

Saturday & Sunday in The Unicorn Room

12 pm - 3pm

We're thrilled to introduce our Artist in Residence programme aimed at supporting Edinburgh's vibrant art scene & creative community. We've selected a young graduate from The Glasgow School of Art as our inaugural resident artist, setting up Studio in our Unicorn Room tucked away in one of The Historic Old Town turrets on the 10th floor of the hotel.

Our first artist is known for his captivating oil paintings inspired by his Scottish heritage and vintage memorabilia; the artwork invites viewers to explore the essence of each moment. Swing by the hotel to see his art on display, learn more about his creative process, and catch him in the Oculus Lounge on weekends through Spring. Plus, while you're there on Saturdays & Sundays, why not indulge in our new Afternoon Tea? It's a perfect blend of culture and comfort.
