Waldorf Astoria Celebrates 70th Festival with Art & Champagne

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian will be installing a new art exhibition in Peacock Alley to mark the past seven decades of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. And to celebrate this milestone the hotel has partnered with champagne house, Perrier Jouet to host a pop-up bar until Sunday 27th August.
The art installation aims to celebrate the irreverent creativity, energy and surreal humour that infuses Edinburgh during the festival. The exhibition brings together emerging and established local and British artists through a collection of prints, collages, and photography that look at the history and future of the capital’s festival season.
Highlights include local photographer, Lee Howell’s, ‘Twins of Red Riding’ and modernist artists, Pat and Hans Schleger.
Guests can sit back and relax in Peacock Alley sipping a glass or two of Perrier Jouet while enjoying the new Festival Collection. The Perrier Jouet pop-up bar will showcase the range, which includes three types of champagne by the glass – brut, rose and blanc de blancs, as well as full bottles and magnums. Prices start from £12 for a glass and from £69 for a bottle.
And in case you are looking for the perfect accompaniment to the champagne, the hotel has developed its own interpretation of a classic - Peacock Prawn Cocktail, which can be served on its own for £9.50, or combined with a glass of bubbles for £20.
To reserve a table in Peacock Alley during the Festival period, please call 0131 222 8945.
