The Cocktail Mafia due to open December
The Cocktail Mafia, billed "a new one-of-a-kind drinking experience" is due to open early December on Charlotte Lane in Edinburgh’s West End. Owned by Pinnacle Hospitality, the team behind The Raging Bull on Lothian Road, The Cocktail Mafia aims to fuse edgy glamour and elegance with theatrical flair. The experimental cocktail menu includes: ‘Citizen Cane’ made with Glenfiddich that will be served in a port sipper glass with a smoked bubble on top and ‘Millieu Vert’ - Roku Gin infused with basil, presented in a vintage 1924 coupe, with a sugared basil rim. The 160-cover bar has been created in conjunction with Edinburgh designer JaCoco whose remit was to craft a decadent drinking den. A rich and sultry palette, contemporary art, neon’s, plush fabrics and wallpapers have been used. Nick Madigan, Managing Director, Pinnacle Hospitality, said: “The Cocktail Mafia is a concept we have been working on since pre-pandemic times and we are very excited to be finally bringing it to life. We wanted to create a bar that was different yet complements the thriving Edinburgh bar scene with world-class service that will set us apart from our contemporaries.” “Having been working on it for a while now, we have taken inspiration from some of the world’s best bars. It will be a deluxe experience, a playground for the senses with a focus on original cocktails for those who dare to be different. We don’t want to give too much away just yet, but we can’t wait to open our doors in the middle of the festive season.” The Cocktail Mafia is due to open in early December from 4pm -1am Sunday – Thursday and 1pm – 1am Friday and Saturday.
