Looking forward to reopening on the 17th of May.
House of Gods is an acute clash of styles, broken rules and a balance of opposites. We believe beige is blasphemy and more is more. From our rooms to our cocktail bar, the hotel is built to immerse you in a world of unapologetic extravagance.

    Heard about the place, so thought I’d surprise my husband with a visit for a sample of the cocktails at the venue. Neither of us were disappointed. We are booking an overnight stay next month- can’t wait

    The mixologist in Liliths bar was outstanding ! Made cocktails to taste and we also done the tarot experience it was unreal! Room was smaller than we expected considering it was an upgraded room but it was lovely. Such nice touches fresh flowers etc. Would highly recommend.

    Most beautiful little bar tucked away in the heart of the Cowgate. Lilith’s Lounge gives off a gothic Garden of Eden vibe with bespoke cocktails to entice the senses. The sexy and charming bartender, Xander, gave us the cocktail menu in the form of a quirky, interactive ‘tarot reading’ which was just the icing on an already exquisite evening! Perfect place for my birthday drinks. Thank you so much for such a memorable evening. Can’t wait to come back!

    House of Gods looks the part but sadly did not meet expectations. For a bar the claims it’s cocktails to be the main attraction, the staff were sadly unable to sell these adequately and were inattentive to us. Sorry, definitely won’t be back.

    It’s a drinks only venue firstly (as advertised). The venue is quite atmospheric and the decor really in sync with their theme. However the bar is probably a little sedate for a Saturday night if you’re wanting to have drinks and a bit of a party. But it’s perfect for couples and post dinner drinks where you want to chill and chat. The service was excellent and the mixologist and the host were lovely and really accommodating.

    The place itself is lovely. The menus are very cool and I’m sure that the drinks may be good too. However 30 minutes waiting and still no sign of an attempt to take a drinks order is too much. Wouldn’t give them a second chance. Sorry. Left and went somewhere with customer service in mind.
