Vastint Hospitality completed the development of a brand new 262-bedroom Moxy Hotel in Edinburgh, UK. On Wednesday 17 February the opening was celebrated together with its operator Hotel Co 51.
The hotel is centrally located on Freer Gait and has a fabulous rooftop bar with stunning views of Edinburgh Castle. Moxy Edinburgh Fountainbridge also boasts two high-tech meeting rooms and a 24-hour fitness centre.
The site used to be home to the renowned Fountainbridge Brewery. Moxy Edinburgh Fountainbridge will stay true to its historic site with a beer and hops concept. Oversized beer tanks will greet guests on arrival with beer lines strategically located throughout the stylish communal areas. The rooftop bar and terrace will serve tapas, speciality cocktails and Scottish and international craft beers, with a steer on more unusual pints not commonly found on the high street.
Whilst the hotel opened during the current nationwide lockdown, rooms will currently only be available to key workers and business travellers.
Moxy Edinburgh Fountainbridge is part of the first phase of the New Fountainbridge project. Besides the hotel, Vastint Hospitality will deliver a restaurant fronting a new civic space, together with a landmark 5.532 m² office building. The redevelopment of this centrally located site in Edinburgh, will create a lively and new mixed-use neighbourhood with 253 residential units.
