Jamie’s Italian is located in the former Supper Room and Edinburgh Suite, with a new second entrance on Rose Street. In keeping with the rest of the building, and being careful to remain faithful to the Assembly Rooms’ 18th century architecture, the restaurant's designers have retained original features, but have also added some culinary magic, with an "antipasti island" and open kitchen.
Jamie’s Italian has become synonymous with offering high quality, authentic Italian food at affordable prices. The ethos behind the menu is driven by what you'd find ordinary people eating in Italy: rustic, simple dishes, using the best seasonal ingredients.
Kiehl’s since 1851 is located on the left hand side of the Assembly Rooms’ entrance on George Street. The venerable New York purveyor of fine quality skin and hair care formulations has moved into the building with its largest freestanding store in Europe.
The store is a modern take on the classic Kiehl’s environment, featuring a coffee bar, men’s barber area and treatment area. It has an atmosphere rich in textures and finishes, whilst maintaining the warm, old-world pharmacy feel of days past with the inclusion of apothecary drawers and cabinets – a testament to Kiehl’s dedication to attentive, personalised service.
ROX is located on the right hand side of the Assembly Rooms’ entrance on George Street. The luxury Scottish jewellery brand is due to take residence in this, its fifth store in Scotland, later this year and open towards the end of October.
The ROX Edinburgh store will offer a luxurious retail experience with stylish display cabinets showcasing the latest collections from cutting edge brands such as Ebel, Frederique Constant, Rado, Raymond Weil, Gucci, Links of London and Shaun Leane. A key feature of ROX Edinburgh will be its exclusive 1,500sq ft Thrill Room private shopping lounge complete with its own champagne bar.
