A comfortable and stylish bar linked to Brasserie Prince, with its own menu of classically French bar bites and elegant cocktails.
It looks dark and imposing as you enter this prime spot within the Balmoral hotel, but Bar Prince has a surprisingly light and airy feel. The bar gleams with polished glassware, over fifty gins and a good selection of whiskies. Alain Roux designed the classically French menu and it’s prepared with carefully chosen local produce. Expect bouillabaisse, moules marinière or garlic snails and breaded frog’s legs – a fully Frenchy experience. A smoked salmon and halibut sharing platter is very generous for two and is complemented by a crisp glass of Venetian pinot grigio. Poached eggs meurette in a red wine sauce is deeply savoury with a caramelised onion and lardon base and service is attentive, without ever feeling overbearing. For a business lunch or champagne and oysters before you catch your train, Bar Prince is a relaxed, elegant choice.
Let the bustle of Princes St fade as you step into the glamorous environs of Bar Prince. Take a seat in one of the cornflower-blue leather chairs or perch at the bar, festooned with gleaming copper barware and fresh ingredients for the bespoke cocktail list.
