We recently joined a group of bloggers to explore some of Edinburgh’s secret cocktail bars, taking photos along the way and trying our best to avoid hangovers the next day.
We already knew Edinburgh had a great selection of bars, and have taken part in our own impromptu cocktail crawls in the past, involving Bramble, Panda & Sons and Lucky Liquor – often not getting much further than that.
This cocktail crawl was on a much grander scale, doubling up as a tour of Edinburgh with Instagram guru, @travelswithmyphone (aka Rachel).
Rachel had teamed up with Yelp to devise a tour of Edinburgh with plenty of potent pit-stops along the way.
Edinburgh’s Secret Cocktail Bar Crawl
- Panda and Sons
- Hoot The Redeemer
- Secret Arcade
- Under The Stairs
- The Huxley
Six bars in one night would be a bit ambitious on a school night, especially given that we would be having a few detours to admire and capture Edinburgh’s beauty. On this occasion, we gave Bramble and The Huxley a miss. A sensible idea, until we more than made up for it at our final stop at Under the Stairs.
Here’s a selection of Instagram images from the night:
If you decide to take the tour yourself, remember to use the hashtag #secretcocktailsedin to be included in Yelp’s page devoted to some of Edinburgh’s best cocktail bars.
Yelp aims to connect people with great businesses – they certainly know what they’re doing when it comes to bars!
If you haven’t already downloaded the Yelp app, you can find it here, it’s a great way to discover bars and restaurants and has a great community behind it.
A huge thanks to Yelp and Rachel for such a fun night, we really enjoyed discovering some new secret cocktail bars and loved revisiting a few old favourites.

Our favourite bar from the night was Under The Stairs, partially down to the fact that I’d never been before, but also as a result of the delicious Dark Matter cocktail – What’s-a Matter u Hey!
Let us know if you decide to attempt all six in one night, and if there any other secret Edinburgh bars missed off the list.
