Nightcap Edinburgh – Cool cocktails

bars
Bars

"Nightcap" in Edinburgh is a cool, cosy, subterranean cocktail bar. I like to come here on a cold evening, get comfortable and shut the world away...

This subterranean cocktail bar, situated next door to Edinburgh's legendary Stand Comedy Club, is a civilised way to spend a few hours on an evening. Expect a smart crowd with a laid back vibe. The staff are friendly, attentive and very skilled in mixing excellent drinks. Stick to the menu or order a classic of your liking- they will definitely not disappoint.

This is a cool, cosy, casual little place to catch up with a small group of friends or a partner. The speakeasy-styled walled front door means that you shut the world away when you enter this little den. I like to come here on a cold evening, take one of the high tables, get comfortable and forget about the icy wind on the streets outside.
