Newington is one of Edinburgh’s best places to go out with friends for the occasional drink or a nice meal after a stressful day. Fairly new to the area is the great South Pour.
South Pour, with its stylish and cosy interior, quickly became one of the hottest insider tips for the Newington area. Personally, I recommend South Pour on Friday and Saturday nights, because of their amazing live acts, such as the boys from Monticule or other talented musicians.
The bar offers a wide range of craft beer, seasonal fresh food and boutique liquor. Worth trying are cocktails like the raspberry gin mojito or the baked Alaska white Russian. The staff is cheerful and the friendly, cosy ambient made me feel welcome.
South Pour is not only an amazing hangout place at night, but also worth checking out for coffee with friends, family, business partners or a simply a productive study session.
The brunch options vary from hot smoked salmon and poached eggs to brioche eggy bread with vanilla ice cream or bacon, just to give a few examples.
If these dishes don’t set your mouth watering, nothing will.
