I've had some lovely burgers and steak sandwiches here but our meal in early December was the worst ever. I chose 56 North for four of us to have an evening out after our meal. Wrong choice! It started with a practically undrinkable Virgin Mary,...More

After sampling many whiskies in another bar, my wife was after a gin. The bar lady in that bar pointed us in the direction of 56 North. Truth be told, we wouldn't have found it without that advice, as it's a little out of the...More

They have a huge selection of spirits and good cocktails. A nice relaxed atmosphere and although we didn't try the food, it looked very nice. They always have deals going on too! Would go back for sure.

Hey, we were celebrating a relative's PhD and dropped in for cocktails after the ceremony. The manager made sure that we were given a large table for the group and that we were offered frequent food and drinks. The location is close to the university,...More

Stopped here on a sunny Saturday evening . Sat at an outside table and enjoyed the summer sun. Really busy and good atmosphere. Had the tanquery gin slushies, just what was needed. Large gin selection available, will need to return to try a few!

A cool, student filled place with a bit of class. Great cocktails and food is pretty good too. A very lively place during the warm nights of the festival, especially with the outside seating.

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around

neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for

arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
