Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Juniper is a hotel bar with a lot going on, especially with the décor. Its enviable outlook of the old town skyline clearly inspires many of its themed tipples, like the warming Auld Reekie and the juicy Tram Belle. The cocktail list also offers a contemporary twist on the classics, for example by serving the Margarita with a choice of flavoured ice on the side. As you would expect from the name, the gin selection here is substantial and runs to over 50 varieties, with a range of 50ml recommended serves that come with their own injection of flavour courtesy of a range of fruits and flowers. A small but stocky menu of non-so-light bites gives plenty of sustenance, with the likes of chunky crayfish croquettes, polenta chips and steak sandwiches providing the necessary soakage.

With laid back beats, an extensive range of drinks and with views that just can’t be beaten, Juniper is the place to see and be seen.

Juniper captures the essence of Edinburgh with its breath-taking vistas across the city skyline, perfectly complemented by the finest of Champagnes and truly inspired cocktail list to satisfy the most demanding aficionado!

The striking white bar contrasts perfectly with aubergine and cranberry furnishings, along with original artwork and subtle lighting, giving it a warmth and informality. The window booths with their unrivalled views are much sought after or relax in one of our comfy chairs in our library. Or if you’re lucky enough to get one of the stools at the bar you’ll be mesmerised by the Juniper crew as they create their exceptional cocktails such as the full Scottish breakfast, rhubarb & custard, Venezuelan blinker or try their signature cocktail, Juniper.

There’s a selection of imaginative bar bites or for something more substantial, try our spectacular restaurant Twenty Princes Street Grill & Smokehouse.

Sleek, chic and discreet, Juniper is top of the list for anyone looking to impress. We don’t just want you to enjoy your drink, we want you to enjoy the whole experience.
