BABA Bar is a destination cocktail bar within The Principal Edinburgh Charlotte Square hotel, adjacent to the BABA restaurant. A specially-commissioned mural of the ‘host’, Mr Baba, provides the backdrop to the bar counter, whilst the interiors concept includes a mix of new and refurbished items to suggest a previous life, from the re-finished, dark-stained, timber bar front and re-used zinc bar top to the new mesh and scaffolding gantry above the bar counter, plus a new, poured concrete floor, decorated with a stencilled repeat motif.
