If you fancy a nightcap, there's no shortage in the city of whisky bars and olde-worlde pubs with an eye-watering range of malts. Whiski on the Royal Mile is a traditional stalwart, a bar and restaurant with over 300 whiskies to choose from and live music every night. However, in 2011 the owners opened a classier joint round the corner on the Mound, teetering above Princes Street. Whiski Rooms, all exposed stonework, with a mural of a stag and a contemporary brasserie vibe, won SLTN Whisky Bar of the Year in 2013. It has a shop stocking around 500 whiskies, a bar, bistro, and tasting room—where along with traditional tastings, whisky is matched with cheese and chocolate. You can take a whisky flight in the bar or try a whisky cocktail—Whiski Martini or a Monkey Mojito anyone?—or just relax with the perfect dram.
