Edinburgh bars: First look photos of Tigerlily’s new Japanese Garden and its incredible cocktails

Guests will be greeted by a burst of pink blooms welcoming them into the George Street venue

Finally, spring has sprung! And you can make the most of it by hanging out at one of Edinburgh most Instagrammable spots.

Back by popular demand, Roku returns to Tigerlilly on George Street alongside Haku Vodka and Toki Whisky for the House of Suntory Japanese Garden.

The cherry-blossom filled wonderland will run until mid-June, offering guests a fresh, flower-filled and decadent space to sip on limited edition cocktails from an exclusive menu featuring three of House of Suntory’s most popular spirits.

Upon arrival at Tigerlily, guests will be greeted by a burst of pink blooms welcoming them into the George Street venue, before discovering a unique photo-worthy Instagram wall complete with a gold shimmering sun, blossom tree and hanging Japanese paper lanterns; a hint at what can be found in the garden.

Guests will be met by a member of the Tigerlily team and led through the newly renovated bar and restaurant to the House of Suntory Japanese Garden. Entering the garden a canopy of cherry blossoms draped from the centre of the room is revealed with soft lantern lighting that creates an intimate space where guests feel cocooned in a dreamlike world.

The large-scale installation, created by Edinburgh-based Wild Flowers, includes no less that 3,500 cherry blossom stems.

Creative Director Jenny Watson said: “It’s not easy installing this many stems but the results are worth it and definitely mark the beginning of spring!”

The limited edition cocktail menu has evolved since last year’s Roku Gin focused selection of tipples, now including Haku Vodka and Toki Whisky based drinks to suit a variety of preferences.

Take a look through our photo gallery to see some of the new cocktails on offer, plus some stunning pictures of Tigerlilly’s House of Suntory Japanese Garden.
