Cocktails & nachos
If the rain and cold is getting you down and you’re dreaming of a tropical paradise, today’s deal offers you the next best thing! Enjoy a cocktail and some of their amazing grub with cheesey nachos to share with up to three of your friends at 52 Canoes Tiki Den in the Grassmarket, choosing from signature cocktails like a Donkey Punch with Smirnoff vodka, raspberry liqueur, fresh ginger juice and lime juice; or a Hello Sailor with Captain Morgan spiced rum and homemade ginger beer. The dreamy décor and skull-shaped glasses will have you feeling like you’re on a paradise island, no matter what the weather’s like outside!
An American take on Polynesian South Pacific culture, tiki bars and dens are like little tropical havens and 52 Canoes is no exception. Having begun life on Melville Place, the popular haunt has recently opened in the Grassmarket. Serving up cocktails, craft beer and fresh food, it’s brilliant for meeting up with friends and admiring the tiki-themed décor.
Great reviews on TripAdvisor
"We loved the décor here and how they wanted a tropical feel and so they threw it all out there - tiki, skeletons, grass skirt trim, coconuts, palms, canoes, surfing, and lots of rum! It’s really fun and their drinks are quite artistic. Enjoy!”
"Popped in for cocktails while out in Edinburgh. This is a cool wee bar & the cocktails were awesome – especially the Mai Tai served in a skull mug. Will be back in future when we can."
"We went there to have a beer and we ended up enjoying a fantastic comedy show, since it was the fringe festival. The place is very originally decorated, staff are nice and the vibe is great!"
