The  Balmoral Hotel, 1 Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2EQ

Whether you drink your whisky for enjoyment or for appreciation, be sure to pay Scotch a visit soon. Even if you don’t know your Scotch from your Bourbon, this could be your educational alcohol lesson for the year. Situated in the shiny emporium of the…


108 Raeburn Place, Edinburgh, EH4 1HH

Equal parts wine bar and neighbourhood restaurant, newcomer Rollo is pitched firmly at the more affluent patrons of Stockbridge. Space is used effectively in the small converted storefront premises, a family project which has been brought to fruition by…


49–50 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EJ

One of those versatile bars that often seems like a good idea for its perky cocktail list (a modernised one will be introduced very soon, retaining six old favourites and the same proactive attitude to decent ingredients), comfy sofas, and very…

20 Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2AN

In this companion bar to the restaurant at 20 Princes Street, within the refurbished Royal British hotel, new owners Cairn have taken the lead from the top destination venues in the city and thrown their doors (and vista) open to all. Although the…


3 Robertsons Close, Cowgate, Edinburgh, EH1 1LY

Hats off to owner Robert Orr for creating one of the city’s quirkiest bar interiors. The room is awash with reclaimed cinema seats, raw timber wall cladding from disused pallets and the funkiest of bars fashioned from charity shop suitcases. Denim-clad…


Edinburgh Quay, 129 Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, EH3 9QA


110–114 Rose Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3JF

Element is a Rose Street pub with an ambition to go gastro. A popular spot for drinks in town, the bustling bar to the front has all the usual beers and well-priced house wines. The cocktail menu contains well-constructed classics and the occasional…


52 West Port, Edinburgh, EH1 2LD

West Port’s Dragonfly continues to make good on its promise to make well priced and equally well composed cocktails available to the masses. From an entry level grapefruit vodka and pomegranate mix to the more creative Burntisland Iced Tea with its…

15 Charlotte Lane, Edinburgh, EH2 4QZ

Tucked away down Charlotte Lane you’ll find Sygn, famous for its £5 cocktail menu and handy location for West Enders. Even if you don’t usually frequent this zone, Sygn is worth the trip. Adam Storey takes credit for the well-designed interior, with…


34a North Castle Street, Edinburgh, EH2 3BN

Tonic is a mecca for the cocktail drinker in Edinburgh. This low-lit, funk-infused basement bar has no food to distract from the main event: a drinks menu that provides for the seriously classic and the deliriously frivolous cocktail lover. A wide…


2b Jamaica Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6HH

Possibly Edinburgh’s best-intentioned restaurant, Iglu won the title of Scottish Sustainable Restaurant of the Year 2014 and has operated as a social enterprise since 2013. Currently 90 per cent of fresh ingredients are Scottish and organic, with the…

Stockbridge Tap

2 Raeburn Place, Edinburgh, EH4 1HN

An oasis of old-time familiarity in the heart of long-since gentrified Stockbridge, the Tap is the boozer of choice for regular locals who don’t expect their drinking haunts to come with an award-winning menu or an extensive wine list. That said, it…

The Southsider

3–7 West Richmond Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9EF

Recently reopened after a comprehensive makeover, the Southsider has quickly re-established itself as a reliable and keenly priced neighbourhood boozer. The new look is a game of two halves with traditional warm tones in the main bar alongside a comfy…

65–67 South Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1LS

Taking over from The Aspen, South Bridge's new cheeky scamp follows a well-worn path of beer and burgers. Familiar brews are boosted by St Mungo and Innis & Gunn lager on draught, with a mixed daytime crowd and evening punters enjoying cocktail…

Divino Enoteca

5 Merchant Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2QD

Having begun life as a wine bar with tapas, Divino Enoteca has evolved into a classy restaurant and ‘wine library’. Shelves and racks of wine line the exposed stonework of its chic basement setting in the shadows under George IV Bridge. As you’d expect…

The Ventoux

2 Brougham Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9JH

The younger sister bar of Leith’s Tourmalet, this relaxed Tollcross hangout features a similarly eccentric modus operandi of plentiful bottled German beers, overt cycling theme (both are named after stages on the Tour de France, which is about the only…

The Tourmalet

25 Buchanan Street, Edinburgh, EH6 8SQ

Owned by Murray McKean, former owner of the Pond down in deepest Leith, the Tourmalet conjures a similar backstreet oasis atmosphere for regulars from near and far. Only open in the evening, it’s cosy and lively all at once, with low lighting, high…
