Edinburgh - drink - The Bon Vivant

The Bon Vivant

Cocktails and 32 wines by the glass distinguish this atmospheric bar-restaurant.

A bon vivant is someone who likes to live well and luxuriously, especially if this bon viv-ing includes eating and drinking.. How apt a name then for this dark and moodily lit bar & restaurant. Warm colors and lots of candles stuck into champagne bottles and an impressive wine & champagne menu on which all their 32 wines can be ordered by the glass. Brilliant. DJ's on Friday's and Saturday's and their food menu sees a fresh change every day. Starters and sweets are offered as £1 and £2 bites, so you can pick and mix and most importantly sample the entire dessert menu..


Because Bon Vivant is the top, after-hours, cocktail stop. Try the 'mandarinha' (beija-flor cachaca, mandarin syrup, lime juice, black pepper) or have the 'last word', (a gin based proper prohibition-era cocktail).. Or check the seasonal specials on the frequently changing cocktail blackboard..
