Fantastic bar, great atmosphere! Drinks selection is fantastic with a wide range of spirits, cocktails, beers, lagers etc. Friendly staff too. The place is a bit difficult to find so make sure you have a quick look on a map beforehand!

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest

helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
