Cosy New Town basement bar with adventurous cocktails and cracking service.
With a tagline of ‘arrive as friends, leave as family’, this tiny Broughton Street newcomer is potentially setting itself up for a fall – too contrived, or too over-familiar. But thankfully Sam and Jody achieve that rare balance between welcoming, chatty and professional almost effortlessly. With plenty of experience to hand (try naming an Edinburgh haunt the Hawaiian-shirted duo haven’t graced) they’ve crafted a list of a dozen accomplished cocktails. Gjallarhorn, a peaty marriage of pineapple juice, banana liqueur, Tapatio Blanco tequila, Abuelo Anejo and Red Leg rum – dubbed a strong but tasty banana milkshake – is served in an ox horn. The raspberry tang of the Baroness, the fellas’ version of a Kir Royale, may even be better than the real thing, despite Kin’s lack of bubbly. Pull up a bar stool, or gather round a table in the cosy room behind and simply relax – you’re in safe, hospitable hands here.
