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 creates 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 our staff, is perfect.  We can make new and exciting drinks each and 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”  And 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 centre, Tonic is the hidden gem that is the essential ingredient in any good night out.  With our experienced bar team and top notch DJs we promise it will be one 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 – Thursday 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 welcome our acoustic acts, followed by weekend resident DJ Mark Benaicha, playing all your favourite Disco/Funk/R&B.  Mark returns on Saturdays, bringing you a bit of everything to keep the party going!
