The much-anticipated SUPERICO BAR & LOUNGE has now opened on Hanover Street serving a drinks list from the award-winning bar team within a stunning, fully-renovated interior.
Superico offers a full-spectrum food and drink experience across two venues in central Edinburgh.
Just a few doors apart, SUPERICO BAR & LOUNGE at 99 Hanover Street and SUPERICO RESTAURANT at 83 Hanover Street, complement each other with their shared ethos of attentive service and a relaxed yet upbeat atmosphere.
The drinks list has been developed by general manager Michael Lynch and his team Johanna Cole and Claudio Poggi. A highlight is the Padron Martini, served straight from the freezer giving it a rich, velvety texture that can only be achieved by serving it ice-cold.
The Green Apple Collins is an approachable twist on a classic Collins with added depth from a house green apple cordial and a kummel caraway liqueur from Mothership Scotland.
Another signature cocktail, the clarified Five Star Milk Punch, is made in one batch by filtering coconut yoghurt through a coffee filter with Star of Bombay gin, Martini Rubino, Amaro Montenegro, raspberry, milk and lime leaving the drink a clear pinky-red colour with a rich, creamy texture.
A food menu is under construction and will be available soon. Expect a selection of sharing-style plates of big, bold flavours – similar to those from SUPERICO RESTAURANT – with a focus on the best Scottish produce enhanced using South American flavours.
The reimagining of Edinburgh institution 99 Hanover Street, run by Juan José Castillo Castro for the last 4 years, is part of a long-term plan to expand the Superico brand to more sites.
The interior is the work of Jaco Justice of Edinburgh-based Studio Ja!Coco! and nakes reference to South American symbolism and geography with a palette of earthy yet contemporary pinks and ochres. Whilst a breath-taking 2-metre-diametre Japanese paper supermoon by Italian product-design veteran Davide Groppi glows from the centre of the room.
