Our drinks & dishes are orchestrated to add a devilish dash of theatre to any occasion, with a restaurant, bar & covered outdoor terrace available for reservations & walk-ins.

Situated a stone’s throw from Edinburgh Castle and the infamous Witches’ Well, you’ll find us ensconced on the fourth floor of St James Quarter, Edinburgh’s contemporary retail and lifestyle district. Enter our den of molecular mixology and let our creative cocktails and darkly delicious dining enchant you.
