A stylish bar with some nice booth seating that specialises in a mind-boggling array of gins numbering 100+, some aged in house. I had a delicious Tanqueray gin that had been aged for a fortnight in a Zacapa rum barrel A good range of tonics matched to each gin, which makes a nice change from the standard schweppes that is often too bitter, likewise garnishes are chosen to match your gin. Can be lacking somewhat in atmosphere if it's quiet.

I've always had a soft spot for 56 North, I don't know why - I just like the place. It's a trendy bar that doesn't take itself too seriously, the drinks menu is pretty extensive, prices are reasonable, they've got a gigantic HDTV to watch sports on, and the food isn't bad either. None of it is the best in Edinburgh, but on a sunny day you can sit outside with a burger and watch the cars go by. Works for me!

Love this place any time of the day, especially if you are partial to a burger and a cocktail. Also keep an eye on voucher sites as they have some bargains on living social. They have a wild range of cocktails, my favourite is the Edinburgh bramble which has around 3 different shots of flavoured Edinburgh gin mixed with snow ice, perfect refresher after dinner. And don't think its just for drinks the food stands out, they have a wide range of burgers but last time we ventured for a flatbread and a salad, and was not disappointed. A lot of chicken on the satay with the flatbread and perfectly cooked duck in the salad. However what i always think makes the best experience is the staff, especially their server Neil who makes you feel more than welcome and relaxed.

I've always been curious to try this place and we finally got tempted in for brunch with a Groupon voucher. The staff were really friendly but the bar had a bit of a student union feel. Our gigantic Bloody Marys were tasty but seemed to lack any alcohol and the breakfasts tasted like they'd been cobbled together with ingredients from Tesco around the corner. If we weren't there on a deal, it'd have been really overpriced for what it was. On the plus side, the cocktail menu did sound delicious though we didn't try any on this visit.
