Billy Lowe launches Black Ivy

28th of November, 2017 | Posted in Edinburgh, Hotel News Email Article | Print Article

Billy Lowe, one of Edinburgh’s most successful licensed trade entrepreneurs has opened Black Ivy, a new 22-bedroomed boutique hotel with two bars and a restaurant in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh. The multi-million pound investment of the former Links Hotel is the latest venture for Lowe, who over the past 25 years built up and sold two notable multi-million-pound businesses – Thistle Inns and Saltire Taverns. The latter included hotels Le Monde and Angels Share.

Billy Lowe comments, “I am genuinely excited to open my latest boutique hotel and my first neighbourhood bar. I have always had properties in the city centre, in both The Old Town and The New Town, but I feel we have the opportunity here to create something iconic and special. Our aim is to provide ‘local luxury for all’ and a
destination venue worth visiting. Black Ivy, I believe,
is a great addition to many of the fabulous businesses already established in the area.”
