For an establishment who relentlessly advertises their pornstar martini (literally all over my Facebook newsfeed) surprised to get here at 12 noon to find not enough ingredients to provide this. Disappointing. Really could try harder guys....

Ordered sex on the beach and mojito, the taste was awful! Either just juice with no alcohol at all or water mixed with alcohol. Understandable if she was busy but she wasn’t, just had no clue how to make a drink.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
