Literally one of the best bars to go in Edinburgh if you're after a cocktail and some awesome tunes. The staff are always so accommodating and the drinks are brilliant. A must if you live in Edinburgh or are just visiting.

Went to Bramble to round off a great evening with friends. One of the barmen, I wish I could remember his name, was a complete idiot and left a very bad impression. Lots of other great bars in Edinburgh. Avoid.

We happened to stay upstairs of this little bar. The bar serves great coctails and the dj was good. Only bad thing was that it closes already at 1.00! 🍸

This place is amazing. You would walk right past it if you didn't pay attention. It's down in a basement and usually has a bouncer stood on the lower steps which is the only reason you would notice there's a bar around. The vibe is...More

This place is a hidden gem for quality cocktails. It's not the easiest place to find its located in the basement of the clothes alterations shop. The cocktail menu is extensive and different from the norm. Well worth a visit

It a very small place and can be hard to get anywhere to perch. Once you're there you get a server who comes and caters for your every need, they give great advice on what you might like and know their menu well. The cocktails...More

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
