What you'll do
On this unique cocktail safari, we'll venture through Edinburgh's hidden streets and visit 4 sensational secret bars. The exploration will be an adventure on its own as these places are well hidden, often guarded with passwords. The decor will change from fortune teller cinema seats to 1950s New Orleans funfair and way more... We will enjoy high-quality drinks, experiment with taste, textures, and flavours. Soft drinks, local craft beers and wine by the glass are also part of the repertoire if you feel like skipping a cocktail. Please note, that on the menus you won't find anything you recognize, these drinks are carefully crafted liquor creations by some of the world's best cocktail curators. Dreams do come true ;) Prepare to be entertained by the creative themes and atmosphere of these gems. I am talking about boozy ice cream machines for example and playlists selected by local DJs that suit perfectly for the occasion. You'll walk away with my independently curated guide map, with 100+ recommendations. This will be your good companion on further adventures in town! All are welcome! Solo travelers, couples and groups. Capacity is maximum 6, so be quick as this one seems to be popular.
