Now that the hospitality industry is slowly starting to open, bars and restaurants are keen to show that they are a safe and welcoming place to visit.
With some potential customers still a little hesitant to venture out, competition will be fierce to entice people to book tables.
That’s why Stac Polly, a restaurant in Edinburgh, has undergone a revamp, with a gin garden emerging as a result.
The garden consist of two seperate areas. Two ‘island’ outdoor tables which can seat 4 people each are situated upstairs and a larger area awaits downstairs.
At basement level is a beautiful space which has wooden decking, pretty hanging flower baskets adorning stone walls and gin bottle vases at each table.
Previously a smoking area, the basement gin garden can safely seat 20 people and the owner hopes the redecorated space will evoke a “casual and relaxed” atmosphere.
Restaurant owner Mark Galloway said: “People are already enjoying it as it gives more individual space and isn’t packed, and people want to get out and feel safe at the same time.”
