Great bar with a great atmosphere. Cocktails were excellent too. I definitely recommend using the claw machine to pick some flavours for your cocktail! A quirky idea that makes the visit that little bit more fun!

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
