Ginger Snap is part of the exclusive catering panel at the magnificent Merchants’ Hall, a perfect venue for city centre events, weddings and conferences. Situated on Hanover Street in the centre of Edinburgh, just minutes from Waverley Station, Princes Street and Queen Street Gardens, this venue is a hidden gem in an amazing location.
Behind the traditional stone fronting lies a private hallway away from the hustle and bustle of the street outside; guests then walk through the large doors into the Hall itself – a beautifully renovated dome (too big to fit all in one photo!), ornate panels and pillars, and portraits and sculptures from the Merchants’ collection. The Hall can hold up to 200 guests for a drinks reception, or up to 150 guests for a seated dinner.
Brides and Grooms, keynote speakers, photographers, bands or guests can make the most of the Minstrel’s Gallery – a sweet little balcony which overlooks the main hall. In the past it has made for amazing photos of all the wedding guests from above, as well as hosting a 6 piece jazz band!
Upstairs you will find the Court Room and the Crush Hall – an impressive setting for meetings and private dining. With a more intimate feel, these spaces would be ideal for a standing reception of up to 120 guests, or a sit down meal for 20-40 people. The carved chimney-piece in the Court Room is a definite focal point, and the portraits by Allan Ramsay and Raeburn accent this crimson room.
Erin and Louise, The Event Coordinators at Merchants’ Hall are on hand to talk you through the venue and your event, and here at Ginger Snap we can be on site from start to finish, ensuring that every element of your day is as perfect as you imagined, from the way the delicious canapés are presented to the style of the flowers and linens on the table.
