Underneath Edinburgh’s South Bridge the new 369 Gallery is beginning to take root. The rambling structure at an old Cowgate store is being transiormed into a centre tor the arts. An exhibition space opened during the Festival and the next stage olthe project, a bar and restaurant called the ‘Gilded Balloon’ will be opening shortly.
The unloading bay of a disused department store might seem an unlikely site tor a trendy caté but the space has been cleverly converted into an attractive covered courtyard. Described as a ‘quality brasserie/restaurant’, the Gilded Balloon is being managed by an experienced team which includes Sam Piacentini and Bobby Halliday together with Walter Morris of CuI-de-Sac lame. The Gilded Balloon will open all day until late and, with a separate programme at activites in the pipeline, it should become an attraction in its own right.

OPENING UP THE GILDED
' Durward's work provides little respite
irom the surrounding activity. The expressionist style is very much the staple diet at both Edinburgh College oi Art and the 369 but these paintings have a raw, unrefined quality which sets the artist apart irom many oi his contemporaries.
Durward can certainly hold his own in the new 369 space. With this larger gallery the organisers say we can loolt lorward to a varied programme at group shows, including artists from both Edinburgh and Glasgow. In the next phase oi the 369 venture the upper lloors at this warren-like building will be renovated. There are plans to create up to ten artists' studios and ‘educational rooms‘ with activities such as drawing classes open to the general public. The whole scheme is ambitious and innovative, but, while they clearly have along way to go, the 369 team deserves whole-hearted support. (The bar should be open by 20 October and the restaurant will open at the beginning at November).
