44 St Stephen Street, Edinburgh, EH3 5AL (Map)
Those lovely Bramble boys have done it again. Located in the chic Stockbridge area of Edinburgh their latest venture, The Last Word Saloon, is a transformation of their former gastro pub into an uber cool cocktail bar. Great choice of location as Stockbridge needs a proper cocktail bar now that Jamie Macdonald’s Raconteur has moved up the road. So, stylish comfy interior yes, plus, as we would expect, a truly amazing cocktail list. There are 16 gins behind the back bar and 50 Pounds Gin is the house pour. We especially fancy the ‘Mum’s The Word’ made with Beefeater Gin, yellow chartreuse, fresh lime juice, green chartreuse and maraschino liqueur. But with loads of Gintime gins and great ways to drink them the though of working one’s way through this cocktail list makes the mouth water.
