The Dragonfly is the best cocktail and drinks venue in Edinburgh. We love being there. Staff are knowledgeable and fun. Cocktails superb, and venue funky and private. Very sad that currently no music allowed, as it’s usually great. And you can hear your friends speak!

We visited The Dragonfly this month as we had just finished our trip around Scotland. My girlfriend and I have been here twice before (both to celebrate our anniversary), we loved it that much so we decided it would be a great place to end our trip. What a mistake that was.

I requested to sit on High Tables (Assuming this meant Upstairs, as the other option was Low Tables, which I assumed meant downstairs) but when we arrived the waiter sat us downstairs, until I asked to be seated where I had requested. There was a very dull atmosphere, it didn't feel like a cocktail bar should (a lively and social place). The cocktails we ordered were the same as we had ordered the previous times we had been, however when they arrived they looked like squash, nothing like we had before from here. The glass size was very small as opposed to last time yet the price was still the same?!

We decided to have the one drink and then left. Hopefully other people who visit have a better experience than we did. Unfortunately we won't be returning, which is a shame as we used to love this little cocktail bar.

Really nice place and special drinks menu! Only quiet because of covid music rules.
