Neighborhood: New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

Absolutely awful place!
Firstly this review shouldn't be taken as a reflection of the hotel or restaurant and is solely from our experience of the bar/cocktail lounge.

My wife and I visited on valentines day whilst in Edinburgh for our anniversary. The wife likes a cocktail and we wanted to try somewhere special to celebrate, so after asking for recommendations opted for tigerlily.

Everything about the place is total cringe, the service was awful and the cocktails mediocre and over priced.

From the greeting and service from the miserable bar women, to the young chavs and wannabe socialites lounging round like their in Monaco, this place screams protencious.

If you think your/want to be Paris Hilton, then this is the place for you. If you are, like us, normal everyday people and fancy a cocktail, then opt for one of the many other bars Edinburgh has to offer!
