The Voodoo Rooms is an award-winning bar hidden in the heart of Edinburgh. Housed in a former gin palace, replete with original furnishings, and even genuine Victorian graffiti, it's a labyrinth of speakeasy-style bars, impressive dining spaces and a twinkling ballroom.

Today it serves some of the most innovative and impressive drinks in the Scottish capital. Back in 2016, our Whiskeria team met with cocktail conjurer Lachlan to discover exactly what alchemy was afoot for Edinburgh's famous festival season. You'll be pleased to hear that revisiting his creations this year is still possible – visit The Voodoo Rooms website to find out exactly what's on the menu for 2018.
