Opal Louge reopens
Edinburgh’s original VIP venue Opal Lounge underwent a lavish refurbishment in 2005. Opal Lounge is part of the string of style bars run by the influential Montpelier (Edinburgh) Ltd chain. As well as being one of Scotland’s best known night clubs, it also has a host of celebrity fans, including Prince William and Kate Moss. It was transformed into an oriental-themed drinking, dining and dancing venue as part of the refurbishment. A lavish party was held to celebrate its relaunch in November 2005.
