Edinburgh’s city centre has a new lei’d back vibe, thanks to the opening of the Auld Reekie Tiki Bar.

Situated on Frederick Street, the Tiki bar is bringing exotic cocktails and Polynesian spirit to the Capital.

In the bar, situated on Frederick Street, visitors can discover an oasis of escapism thanks to the truly tropical decor that includes a palm print wall and peacock chairs.

The laid back vibe and delicious cocktails makes the Tiki bar an ideal spot to visit during the Edinburgh Festival next month. There’s also an outdoor terrace for those (rare) sunny days.

Cocktails are a mix of tiki specials, some with a Scottish twist, such as: Saturn, a drink from IBA’s world cocktail championship that includes gin, falernum, orgeat, lemon bitters, pineapple, lime and passion fruit juices, and the Arthur’s Seat Volcano, which consists of Bacardi rum, pineapple, pink grapefruit juice, absinthe and house ginger beer with a flaming eruption of Wray & Nephew overproof rum.

All the cocktails are served in eye-catching, authentic ceramic Tiki mugs.
