The Permit Room
A bar in its own right, The Permit Room sits underneath Dishoom. Expect intelligent cocktails with a Bombay twist.
Underneath Dishoom, the Permit Room’s wooden-clad walls and incense-filled air transports you from the streets of Edinburgh to a members’ club in colonial India. Used as both a waiting area for the restaurant and a bar in its own right, the drinks menu offers wines, beer (including Dishoom’s own IPA) and cocktails with spiced and botanical twists. The cocktail offering includes five drinks exclusive to Dishoom Edinburgh; like the Themul’s Tangle which balances cinnamon, sloe gin, lemon and ginger and the Horniman’s Old-Fashioned, their take on the classic with rum, pineapple syrup and bitters. There’s also plenty for teetotal patrons with a newly launched menu of dry tipples that shun overly sweet and fruit juice based mocktails for grown up versions like the Sober Martini and Virtuous Tulsi Sour.
