Welcome to 56 North

We are Scotlands original gin bar, kitchen and working distillery


We are currently closed for Covid-19 lockdown.

Our online shop is trading as normal for gifts. If you have a current gift voucher with an expiry during the lockdown don't fear. We will honour any voucher with expiry during the lockdown once we are back open. All we would ask is just drop us details via the contact page so we can help track this.

If you had a gin experience booking also don't worry. If you have bought a experience for a specific date we are giving you options. We are offering either to change onto a new date once we are back open or we're happy to convert the value of your expereince into a gift voucher for use in the bar. Just drop us a message using the contact page to confirm what you'd like to do so we can track this for you.

I'd personally like to thank all our guests for working with the team to support the business and staff jobs at this time. The support shown to covert bookings into gift vouchers or rebook onto future dates has been incredible and help massively at this difficult time to keep the business going for the future.

Please stay safe and we will see everyone as soon as it is safe to get out.

56 North

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to 56 North. We are offering a warm, friendly atmosphere to share a meal, drinks or party with family and friends at any time of the day or evening. Since 2008 we have been here taking care of our customers and serving Edinburgh, as Scotland first dedicated gin bar. Our award winning gin & spirits collection is the centre of 56 North but we now have a working Distillery making South Loch Gin inside the bar for you to see. We look forwards to your visit to us if you are coming for food, drinks or one of our gin experiences.
