A second Chop House bar & butchery will open on Thursday 11th August at ‘The Arches’ on Edinburgh’s East Market Street. Set within a stunning C-listed brickwork arch in the heart of the Old Town close to Waverley Railway Station, the new Chop House will replicate the unique casual dining experience that has proven popular in the brand’s original Leith location, with a focus on ‘best of British’ steak and innovative cocktails.
The Chop House is one of several existing tenants at the New Waverley project, which is restoring 19 historic arches, creating a new retail and leisure destination for Edinburgh. Positioned in one of the largest arches, Chop House will offer a 60-cover restaurant plus a large bar area over 2 floors. Award-winning design agency Four-by-Two have been commissioned to create a cutting-edge interior that will highlight the architectural details of the original brickwork.
Chop House was successfully launched by The Compass Group in Leith last September. The group also operates Edinburgh venues Montieths, Sygn and The WestRoom.
Managing Director Mark Fraser commented: “Being part of such a prestigious development is hugely exciting, the location is second to none and we are confident that The Arches will establish themselves as a key destination within the city centre. We are really excited about the interior of the building, we are creating a very special space for dining.”
