This place is super cool and has a great selection of fun drinks. It's located underneath a barber shop which makes the entrance very fun and secretive. Great spot for a drink with some friends.

Trendy bar, with an extensive cocktail menu. I had an Old Fashioned which was well made and a Long Island iced tea which was also very quite nice.

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
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
