Cold Town House
What’s the vibe? Housed in a former church and spread over three floors, Cold Town House is home to a brewery, bar and restaurant, all starring Cold Town Beer. You can kick back and enjoy comfortable outdoor seating all year round – either sitting out in the outdoor space or taking in the ambience of the rooftop bar. Fluffy blankets, gondola booths and covered seating will keep you warm and dry on cooler days.
Why go? They brew their own craft beer, serve delicious Neapolitan pizzas and offer one of the most beautiful views of Edinburgh Castle.
Ivy on The Square
What’s the vibe? You can never go wrong with a meal at The Ivy. Located in the prestigious St. Andrew Square, in the heart of Edinburgh, and housed in an impressive glass-fronted building, The Ivy On The Square brings relaxed, sophisticated dining with a touch of theatre. It features a small outdoor area which overlooks the greenery of St Andrew’s Square – perfect to sit back and watch the world go by.
Why go? You’ll find great, modern, all-day British and international Ivy-inspired classics, as well as Asian-inspired cuisine, fantastic vegan and vegetarian dishes and incredible cocktails.
What’s the vibe? Located in Edinburgh’s West End, Indigo Yard is a stylish, full of character setting in which to enjoy rustic food and drinks. Boasting a large outdoor courtyard, covered by large parasols, it unsurprisingly gets pretty busy particularly during the summer, so get here early if you want to guarantee yourself a table outside.
Why go? Perfect for boozy brunches, elegant mains and bar bites, as well as a superlative selection of beer, wine and cocktails.
