To find this little diamond you have to make your way out of the city center and down Leith Walk, it’s 5 mins in a cab or half an hour if you wanna stretch your legs – but it’s worth it. Their philosophy states that ‘everyone who’s nice is welcome to join the party’, hear hear. On dark winter nights it’s the huge windows moodily lit from within that beckon us to this place. Kiss goodbye to hours as you lose track of time.
The staff and long-standing regulars choose what goes on the menu here, including a beer selection from over 30 countries. Check out their own brand of Iduns Swedish cider, it’s Moorish stuff.
The crowd here are hot, friendly and cool and there are plenty of offbeat events like a language café every Monday, salut.
