Went to bramble for a 21st last January/February. The drinks were great and priced adequately for the service. The 2 guys on the bar had good chat, and made us all feel very welcome. The design of the bar surprised me with no beer on draught, but i just chose other drinks and there was a wide range of bottled... More

Wonderful hidden gem of the city. Very chilled out atmosphere, small but not overly crowded and excellent cocktails. All beverages are very reasonably priced and the staff were so helpful and very attentive.

In need of libation to stave off death by Christmas shopping, I asked ‘Siri’ and she recommended this place. Boy, am I glad she did. The daft mare could have told me how to find it, but that’s part of its charm I suppose (the bar, not Siri, she’s anything but charming). The only hint I’ll give you is to... More

Me and my girlfriend heard about this bar from a local we'd chatted to during the day. We walked past the bar twice as we were looking for it as the sign i so subtle. Once in we were submerged into a dimly lit bar with funky music and great atmosphere. Very classy and comfortable place to relax and have... More

The drinks here are great, you have to be careful how many you have! My only slight complaint is the music was a by too loud.

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
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 clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
