The Devil’s Advocate

Like a riddle wrapped in an enigma, The Devil’s Advocate is a quirky bar and restaurant nestled in Edinburgh’s Old Town in an old Victorian pump house that’s then even more off the beaten track in Advocate’s Close.

Glowing with over 300 whiskies from around the world, it describes its list as an ‘ever- evolving beast’ and there’s beauty in this beast. The collection boasts many rare, one-off bottlings which come and go on a weekly basis to keep regulars on their toes.

Staff love preaching the whisky gospel by introducing customers to the wonderful world of whisky – like whisky flights and hauf ‘n’ haufs that are dedicated and designed to introducing whisky novices to the amber nectar.
