Recommended by a friend and would totally have missed it otherwise! Fab little hidden bar with quirky decor and great choice of drinks. The cocktail game is fun and the staff are lovely too. Will be back when we return to Edinburgh.

After an initial confusion at the entrance (are we supposed to give the fortune teller a password??) we entered a great place, with amazing ice cream and drinks. The popcorn was really weird but in a good way. Intriguing atmosphere.

Icecream, popcorn and slushies, what more would you want! Well worth the hunt to find the bar because the atmosphere and drinks were amazing.

Great service and friendly staff, great atmosphere and fun retro games to get involved in! If we wouldn’t have been recommended to go we probably would have missed it - glad we were told as such a fun hidden bar!!

Hidden away behind a mystics palm reading door is a cute and fun themed bar. Lots of quirky bits of furniture and games - great cocktails!

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
