Your Favourite Edinburgh Bars – #RSH Guides

Posted on

In our weekly competition, 10 train-loving tweeters win £10’s worth of loyalty points by tweeting their tips about a set destination to #RSH Guides, for us to share through foursquare. This week, we asked you to tweet us and tell us about your favourite Edinburgh watering-holes.

Read on to see who won and which Edinburgh bars they voted for. And don’t forget to share your suggestions with us using Twitter – you could win loyalty points to put towards cheap train tickets, hotel stays or car hire.

@JacintVirag picked up the first of this week’s prize points with a top Twitter tip recommending two Edinburgh bars for music fans. The Liquid Rooms, Victoria Street, hosts regular gigs and has attracted big names like Morcheeba, The Cribs, KT Tunstall and the Maccabees, whilst 99 Hanover Street is the place to go if you want to see some of the UK’s top DJs in action.

@johnhillsport made it into our winners’ list this week with a Twitter suggestion to try The Caves on Niddry Street South. This atmospheric club, set within the vaults of Edinburgh’s 18th Century South Bridge, is best known as a venue for weddings and corporate events, and only hosts occasional public nights. So keep your eye on the club’s website, as watching a gig in this amazing subterranean location is an experience not to be missed.

@GaelleSiourakan picked up those prize points too with a winning Twitter tip suggesting cocktail-lovers head to West Port, in the city’s Old Town, and try out The Dragonfly Cocktail Bar. With stylish décor and a cocktail list featuring concoctions like the Raspberry Ripple and the Guinness Daiquiri, it’s the perfect place to enjoy an indulgent evening.

@custom_misery chugged into this week’s top 10 with a great Twitter tip to try Broughton Street’s Treacle Bar & Kitchen. This fashionable venue serves a fantastic selection of cocktails and wines – and it’s also known for its delicious food, so you can head back there for a slap-up breakfast the morning after too.

@selincanperk railroaded her way into our top ten this week with a Twitter vote for the WHISKI Bar and Restaurant on Edinburgh’s High Street. No visit to the Scottish capital would be complete without a wee dram or two, and you’ll find more than 300 malt whiskies and blends on offer in this award-winning venue.

@KristoferKeane picked up those loyalty points too with his top tweet for thirsty ghost hunters and fans of grisly history to head to The Last Drop Tavern in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket. This cosy pub takes its name from the fact that it’s right next to the spot where public hangings took place in the 18th century – and some say that it’s not just home to spirits of the drinkable kind.

@janeej also won those prize points with a Twitter tip to try The WestRoom in Melville Place. As well as serving great food, beer and wine, it’s known for its extensive cocktail list – and @janeej recommends booking a place on one of the bar’s 2 hour long Cocktail Master Class sessions. For just £20, you can learn how to recreate some of their fabulous cocktails and impress your friends when you get back home.

@MelanieAnn90 made it into this week’s picks too with a winning tweet recommending a visit to Oloroso, an elegant restaurant bar perched on a hill in Edinburgh’s Old Town. Its lounge bar makes the perfect venue for evening drinks and on a summer’s day, there’s no better place to unwind with a refreshing drink than on its rooftop terrace with its stunning city views.

@angelagoulder steamed into this week’s top 10 with her Twitter reminder about The Halfway House in Fleshmarket Close. Just a short walk from Edinburgh Waverley Station, it’s always got 4 cask ales available and CAMRA members get a discount if they show their membership cards, so it’s the perfect place to stop as part of a Scottish rail ale trail break.

@ned__walker pulled in the last of this week’s prize points with a Twitter tip for rail travellers arriving in Edinburgh to try The Dome on George Street for superb drinks in elegant surroundings. This historic venue has a Grill Room and a Club Room, but its Garden Café is the ideal spot for enjoying a delicious drink and some tranquillity in the heart of the city.

Congratulations to this week’s winners – and thanks to everyone who tweeted us to recommend bars in Edinburgh! Remember, there’ll be more loyalty points up for grabs in next week’s competition, so you keep an eye out on Twitter to see what tips we’re looking for.

Don’t forget to tweet your tips to #RSH Guides, so you can be in with the chance of winning some loyalty points.
