George Nicolson Decorators

Thistle Street Bar - External

Case Study

Thistle Street Bar, Edinburgh

George Nicolson, together with members of our subcontracting team, were pleased to be instructed by Greene King to undertake the refurbishment of the Thistle Street Bar, Edinburgh.

Works to the property consisted of a new hardwood floor, redecoration internally & externally, lighting and bar counter upgrade. The refurbishment enhanced many of the original fixtures and fittings thus breathing new life into this traditional Scottish public house.

The end result has been received very well by the client, tenant and customers alike.

The Thistle Street Bar, is a popular public house located in the oldest street at the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town. Here you will find the best that Scotland has to offer, from their draught beers and lagers as well as an extensive whisky and gin selection.

Whether it’s to grab a drink, enjoy a bit of banter with the regulars and their friendly bar team or just to relax and soak up the atmosphere of a real Scottish pub, everyone is made to feel at home. For more information, please visit their website:
