#197: Revolution, Chambers Street, Edinburgh

Revolution, Chambers Street, Edinburgh (exterior)

Revolution is a UK-wide chain of around 70 bars, 3 of which are in Scotland. There are two bars, both fairly large, though the basement verges on club territory. Downstairs was closed on this visit, so we didn’t get to have a look around. Upstairs is quite trendy, assorted leather armchairs and sofas, various mirrors and grilles, low lighting, garden shed wooden cladding on the walls (so hot right now), flowers and candles on the tables, neutral colours, low pendand lighting. Lorna summed it all up by saying it was a bit too much like a posh student union or Nandos (which, incidentally, is next door).

It wasn’t exactly busy, but astute readers of the blog will know by now that on a Tuesday night, that’s quite normal. Most of the punters were under 30, and yet they were playing I Love Your Smile by Shanice and Connected by the Stereo MCs, as if these young punks would know such classics.
