At the top is the Forth Floor Bar and Restaurant where you can relax, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy their acclaimed food and drink, as well as panoramic views of Edinburgh.
Venture through the side door of Harvey Nichols and find yourself in another designer paradise, with everything from Mulberry, Louis Vuitton and Emporio Armani to G-Star, Replay and Reiss………. After all that shopping, a drink might be in order at Valvona & Crollas Vin Caffé. A lovely Italian wine bar with an outdoor seating area for those lucky enough to visit when the sun is shining.
This department store has proudly stood on this corner site on Princes Street for over 100 years.
