I like to pop in here for an early evening cocktail or a pre-dinner aperitif. The chaps do lovely drinks and seem to do them properly, even knocking together one of the best old fashioned that I have had in a long time, more notable...More

We had some amazing cocktails here. It’s very different to get a decent cosmopolitan and the mixologist even burnt the orange rind - perfect. The retro music playing was a bonus. We loved it here.

My friend and I enjoyed cocktails in this friendly bar, Bloody Mary and Margaretta, both expertly made by very knowledgable and professional barmen. Will definitely return. Thank you for helping to make our visit to Edinburgh an enjoyable experience.

Although Madogs presents itself as a restaurant I'd rather say it is a pub --based on its food. I've dine there once, and although I really enjoyed the atmosphere I didn't find the food memorable.

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
