    Snag the table on the elevated floor beside the bar, superb spot to people watch and see your friendly mixologists in action. Pre-game those delicious cocktails with a Brooklyn Lager.

    The Mint 500 is delicious. Keep an eye out for the sign on the lower level of the building (or the two bouncers outside) because otherwise you might pass it! ❤️

    My favourite bar in Edinburgh. Would recommend the Bramble and the Rosa Parks. The music and atmosphere are always very good but it can be a squeeze if you don't get a table. Also they close midnight

    When you look at the menu you may think the drinks are over priced but the bartender prepares them to perfection. Loved the music - old school hip hop but not tacky. So good! Ps - hidden entrance

    Probably the funkiest cocktail joint in Edinburgh and the music is always on point, with 90s hip-hop and alternative electronica. Needless to say, the Bramble cocktail is the ish.

    Tiny little speakeasy with some of the best cocktails in town. Order a hanky panky (not on the menu).

    A cocktail bar reminiscent of London's secret speakeasies. Best table is the one in it's own room, you'll get the best service and it won't be noisy.

    Spot on place, hidden gem hidden at the corner of hanover/queen street, great cocktails, music and guys behind the bar! Defo must-visit

    The shock of the 2015 Top 50 list is that previously ever-present Bramble is not on it. It remains a pillar of the bar community and nursery to so many of the world’s great bartenders.

    Fantastic cocktails & staff! Plus, they serve barrel aged cocktails that you can also buy in tiny bottles to-go!

    Excellent cocktail list, precision execution, and intimate seating. Perfect speakeasy ... except it has a (small) sign.

    Scotch sour has a tropical flavor. They use un-aged whiskey. Cool and knowledgable bar tenders. Just ask them to make you a specialty.

    Try the No.3 gin for a very sophisticated spirit and the Sipsmith gin for a spicy,rich, junipery sensation.
