Raise a glass to the Festival Fringe at pop-up ventures across town

Raise a glass to the Festival Fringe at pop-up ventures across town

When the Fringe takes over Edinburgh town, it can be a battle to find a spot to grab a drink.

Most bars during the weekend will see queues out the door and Fringe venues themselves can become rammed as punters rush for a pint before catching a show.

If you’re looking to try somewhere a little different, we’ve had a look at the festival’s pop-up bars from cocktail concoctions to jam jar pints.

Pommery champagne bar

Following its very popular venture last year, the Pommery Champagne Bar will return to the Signet library.

With glasses of fizz, tutored champagne tastings and luxury foodie options, you can tuck in or raise a glass from 12 noon each day.

Jeremiah Weed cow shed

The cider shed will return bringing a taste of Kentucky to the Cowgate.

With hay bales scattered across the room and a giant plastic cow, last year even the toilets were themed with Wild West swinging doors.

You can drink out of jam jars and sing the night away as the bar also hosts live music until 3am opposite the Underbelly.

Drambuie summer hut

Drambuie will host a pop-up bar in the pasture alongside Udderbelly at Bristo Square until August 25.

The bar will serve punch, Scottish sangria and Drambuie and ginger beer from midday until late.

Tanqueray secret gin garden

56 North will host an additional bar in its outdoor space throughout the Fringe at Crosscauseway.

The gin garden will open seven days a week from 12pm until 1am serving a range of Tanqueray mixed drinks and bites to eat.

Pickerings Gin

The distillery in Summerhall is setting up a pop-up stop in the courtyard with Pickering’s Peacocktails offering cocktail tastings with a twist.

You can enjoy a cocktail flavour suggested by a member of the public at the tasting tent, alongside one of their more traditional options from midday to midnight seven days a week.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to become a cocktail connoisseur you can send your suggestions via Twitter, Facebook or email.

Aperol garden

The brightly orange coloured Aperol Spritz garden has moved from the middle of George Street to St Andrew Square.

This year’s bar will feature wooden terracing, water features, beanbags and a picnic area with deck chairs and will open from 11am to midnight.

There will also be live music throughout the day and the special signature Aperol Spritz cocktail made from Prosecco and Aperol.

If you have a favourite pop-up festival bar, let us know @STVEdinburgh and we’ll add it to our list.
