Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel, perched on the edge of a private garden in the New Town, combines traditional glamour with modern Scotland. It's an Instagram-ready hotel for a new generation of travellers with stunning interiors, a luxurious spa and gym and multiple dining spots. BABA, its most well known of these spots, serves modern cocktails and inventive cuisine with Middle Eastern and Scottish influences. Mezze takes centre stage here but a charcoal grill contributes as well, cooking Scottish lamb, beef, and seafood.
