Jets, swimming pools and islands can all be improved by putting the word ‘private’ in front of them. The same could be said of dining.
Costing less than a Lear jet and requiring considerably less maintenance than a pool, today’s Big Deal is for a luxurious private dining experience in the recently launched Oakroom at the award-winning Urban Brasserie.
Once home to the Bank of England’s Scottish HQ, the Urban Bar and Brasserie on St Vincent Place retains its handsome good looks.
With its wood panels, stunning flower displays and ornate cornicing, it is an elegant city centre spot and this Big Deal is designed to let you see what they do best.
Private dining for ten
Ideal for celebrating with friends and family, or entertaining clients, today’s Big Deal is for ten people to enjoy a fine meal in The Oakroom, the new private dining area in Urban Brasserie.
Your party will enjoy a glass of Prosecco and canapés on arrival followed by the four course Chef’s Choice menu. As well as three bottles of house wine to share, coffee and tablet for each guest are also included.
