We met friends here last night and loved it. Not a huge cocktail list but each one is obviously carefully thought out and wow were they good. Staff were great too. Go, enjoy and drink lots!

Bar staff where very knowledgeable, capable of creating cocktails that were not on the menu; making up cocktails with flavours like chocolate orange and such, would recommend to anyone interested in cocktails. They're good.

Cute & quirky little place with great staff & a comfy unpretentious atmos. A great selection of drinks including both classic cocktails you expect & some of their own to separate them from the pack.

So let’s get the obvious out of the way; the bar is great. The cocktails are inventive, the atmosphere is relaxed and alternative, the music is great and the bartenders are friendly. I came with friends on a night out after work and was maladroitly...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
