It takes a mad genius to take a derelict arch and transform it into something special. Thankfully longtime friends and colleagues Carmen Allison and Donna Howden fit that brief just right.
Having achieved success managing the likes of Bar Brig, the duo have now channelled their creative energy into giving the space beneath Leith’s disused railway a new lease of life. The impressive renovation has now created space for a street food and drink extravaganza, with pop-ups already pencilled in from the likes of Norelli, Mana Poke, BrewDog and Paolozzi, and lots of exciting gigs in the pipeline too.
If the opening night was anything to go by, the only challenge might be getting through the door.
