KIN (1 BARONY STREET)

The city’s lat­est cock­tail bar has been gen­er­at­ing a buzz, not least be­cause it’s run by top bar­tenders Jody Buchan and Sam Bax­en­dale, whose tip­ple-mix­ing cre­den­tials are not to be sniffed at. Set­tle in for ad­ven­tur­ous cock­tails and hearty bar snacks, and don’t be afraid to ask the pas­sion­ate crew for off-menu con­coc­tions.

THE DEVIL’S AD­VO­CATE (9 AD­VO­CATE’S CLOSE)

Hid­den away in Ad­vo­cate’s Close in Ed­in­burgh’s his­tor­i­cal Old Town, this restau­rant-bar lo­cated in an old Vic­to­rian pump house boasts a 400-strong whisky shelf and cock­tails with punchy three-word de­scrip­tions that help you make drink de­ci­sions that you won’t re­gret. Or­der the parme­san and truf­fle chips, too; they’re out-of-this-world good.

BULLARD & WORTH TRAD­ING CO (89 ROSE STREET NORTH LANE)

For­merly called Bryant & Mack Pri­vate De­tec­tives, this speakeasy is so well cam­ou­flaged that you’d cer­tainly be for­given for walk­ing past the non­de­script door. Themed cock­tails with twists on tra­di­tional favourites, at­ten­tive ser­vice and an im­pres­sive whisky list make for a fun night out in this cosy city-cen­tre lair that seats just 20.
