Called in here whilst on a flying visit to Edinburgh. Spent ages trying to find it but when I did I wasn't disappointed. The cocktails were great and they were playing some seriously old skool R n B.

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!

One of Edinburgh's top cocktail bars which is very difficult to find on Queen Street. No big signs but be patient and you will find it. The bar is in the basement and dark. They have a dj at night. The drinks are excellent and...More

This place always gets a visit every time I'm in Edinburgh. An amazing array of cocktails all served in a brilliant cellar venue. A must visit when in the city.

This speakeasy type of bar is little confusing to locate but if you are inside , I bet you will love the cocktails they make. Seeing three bar men working like machines makes you more tempted to try out something different Claudio is another genius...More

Brilliant small bar/lounge (once you find the stairs down to it). Fantastic service by the staff, chilled atmosphere, lovely interior and for the quality of cocktails are fantastic! Be warned though, Edinburgh prices apply.

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
