Our expert bartenders shake, stir and build an inspiring, and seasonal, selection of the best cocktails
and drinks in the city, whilst our team of dedicated chefs work with our award-winning local
suppliers to ensure quality and provenance in every dish we serve. We’ve got friendly DJ’s on site
every weekend and host Edinburgh’s resident Quiz Master, Dr Paul, every Thursday from 8pm!

bites and massive celebrations – The Newsroom Bar and Eatery is the place to go for the best food
and drinks in Edinburgh's City Centre.
