Used an wowcher for 4 cocktails and nachos and absolutely loved it! The cocktails were superb and also the nachos! Service was excellent, far better than the other bar offering the wowcher in comparison. Great atmosphere and great food and drinks!

Sadly now just a bland imitation of its former self after a recent change of ownership. The unique decor has gone, the inventive menu and more so the atmosphere and friendly, individual styles and personalities of the bar staff have all disappeared. It is now...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
