Nicer atmosphere downstairs than up (upstairs still nice). Reasonably priced cocktails and a good time!
Loved it and would happily return. Many thanks!
Great design and location. The cocktail selection isn't great - the majority are very average.
We didn't actually eat, just went with a group for cocktails. The service was exceptional, really professional. The cocktails are fantastic and they were delighted to make any cocktail of our choice, on and off the menu. The music was awesome too. Made for a great evening. When restrictions are lifted, I can imagine this place being even better
Was so much fun last night at dragon fly, went with my friends and was such a laugh. Staff and bouncers were lovely !
Cocktails to celebrate my son’s 18th birthday. Friendly service, unusual and tasty cocktails. Son returned the next night with his girlfriend!
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!
lovely little bar. Good selection of drinks and very attentive staff. Great overall experience.
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.
Over priced for tiny cocktails.
Had a lovely cocktail each on way to dinner. Very safe and set up well with current restrictions. Ftm
Always love the cocktails here is my go to place. Was delighted with how it was set up too with social distancing. Hasn't taken away for the experience.
Fantastic place. Deffo going to return. Next time I'm in Edinburgh
Lovely atmosphere and really tasty cocktails. The staff were helpful and obliging in giving information and cocktail descriptions. Super clean and welcoming space
Friendly staff, good cocktails and a relaxing atmosphere.
