Things to do for Couples in Edinburgh
Bramble Bar, New Town
Named after its house specialty, Brambles is the best cocktail bar in all of Edinburgh, and maybe one of the better in the world. The quality of the drinks here is unmatched: each sip is a delight, and completely justifies the price. The speak-easy inspired deco fits well in fancy New Town. Great cocktails, combined with dim lights and electro-jazz music make any evening here unforgettable.
Botanical Gardens, New Town
Enchanting magical gardens with manicured hedges and exotic flowers. Visit Inverleith House 18th classic gallery for free and stop of in the lovely cafe next door. Or, simply find a bench and admire the "Wonderland". A photographer’s paradise, which would be a hit with families, nature buffs, peace-seekers and artists alike.
Cafe Royal, Old Town
One of the New Town’s most popular pubs. The stunningly elaborate Victorian interior is crammed most evenings, and pretty much all the time over the weekend, so getting a table can be tough. It’s one not to miss though. Food is good, local beers are served on tap – but really, you come for the décor.
Wedgwood Restaurant, Old Town
Not the cheapest meal you’ll eat in Edinburgh, but the prices aren’t extortionate, and are fully justified. Best quality Scottish ingredients vary seasonally and could include hand-dived scallops, wild deer, pigeon, Scottish salmon and foraged salad leaves. Scottish elegance is the order here.
Underthestairs , Old Town
If you ask Edinburgh dwellers what their favorite bar is, many of them will answer “Under the Stairs”. Located, as its name suggests, under the stairs of a lovely Old Town building near the Grassmarket, this bar has a warm, sophisticated yet laid-back atmosphere. Decorated to look like a living room, every piece of furniture is an antique, and they expose local artists’ work, as well as a beautiful fish tank.
