Independent pizzeria, Pizza Geeks, are collaborating with Cask Smugglers cocktail and whisky bar to launch a venue on Waverley Mall’s rooftop, extending their kitchen residency as a permanent location in the centre of Edinburgh.

Pizza Geeks is well known throughout the city for their handmade Neapolitan-inspired pizzas and their ‘Pizza for the People’ initiative, where they work closely with the local community to give back to them.

Following the success of Pizza Geeks' latest opening at the shore in Leith, the team are joining forces once more to collaborate with Cask Smugglers, pairing their pizzas with some delectable cocktails.

With unrivalled views over the capital, including the iconic Edinburgh Castle, diners can enjoy alfresco pizza with specially paired cocktails in a brand new menu initiative.

They plan to eventually have a late-night menu element and a larger summer outdoor area, as covid restrictions ease further.

The team at the pizzeria have so far given over 13,000 pizzas to people in need through their initiative.

In 2018 they launched Pizza for the People, a one for one campaign that sees sales of their featured pizza matched and donated to homeless and disadvantaged people within their local community. 

Simon Hossack from Pizza Geeks at Cask Smugglers said: "We are so thankful to be reunited once again with Cask Smugglers on our voyage to deliver mouth-watering pizzas alongside their amazing cocktails.

"We are huge fans of theirs and our maesters have created special menu items to pair seamlessly with choice libations.

"The most important thing is that a new permanent venue allows us to go further with our Pizza for the People initiative which we are all so passionate about as it is at the core of everything we do at Pizza Geeks."
