Bar Tonic | Edinburgh's Cocktail Bar

Welcome to Tonic

– Edinburgh’s intimate cocktail bar where it’s all about you.

Come in, sit back and have a look at our award winning cocktail menu to see what takes your fancy, or forget the chair and enjoy the music as one of our bartenders create the drink of your dreams, whatever that may be.

As a small independent bar we have very few restrictions on what we can do. This, for us the, staff, is perfect. We can make new and exciting drinks every day, using all the best homemade ingredients to quench your thirst, whilst creating the perfect atmosphere for the occasion.

As Dale DeGroff said: “A bartender is most definitely on stage”

He was certainly right. We aren’t just here to provide the drinks but the entertainment too.

Located on North Castle Street, just off of George Street in Edinburgh’s city center, Tonic is the hidden gem that is the essential ingredient in any good night out in town. With our experienced bar team and top notch DJs we promise to give you a night to remember.

Whether it’s your first time here or your home away from home we hope to put a smile on your face as you sing, dance, drink and laugh, surrounded by the best company in town. Finally, once you’ve had your fill, we hope you leave fully content and ever so slightly inebriated.

Resident DJ’s & Music

Here at Tonic no two nights are the same. Weekdays are relaxed affairs with great drinks and a lovely atmosphere but as the night goes on the bar is always ready for a party. Monday – Sunday don’t be surprised if you find yourself up and dancing to our bartenders party tunes, plus at the weekend we have our resident DJs on hand from 9pm to add that extra something…

On Fridays we have DJs Keith Lyall and Mark Benaicha rotating around, playing all your favorite Disco/Funk/RnB and basically everything else you can possibly want!

Saturday nights are the main nights down here at Tonic and we’ve got Tonic mainstay Ged Warrack taking control of the music every Saturday night. If anyone knows how to keep the party going down here, he does!
