I'm sorry but who doesn't like entering a bar through a bookcase! The cocktail are delightful, the staff are fantastic, the popcorn is slightly odd and the menu is whimsical - every time I visit Edinburgh, I visit Panda & Sons, just because I can!

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
