Myself and three friends visited Tiles after dining out on abuse Friday night. The selection of drinks was excellent and matched by the service of all staff despite the bar being busy. Been a few years since I visited but I will return soon.

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
