Visited on a Saturday evening during the Festival, and were surprised it was so quiet when the rest of the city was heaving- then we found out why. Staff were dissuading people from coming in, although it was 45 mins until it closed. Extremely limited...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
