Yule Fest Leith, a brand new seasonal cocktail festival bringing festive tipples to Edinburgh’s coolest neighbourhood, launches today. The festival, which will run from 5th November to 5th January, is designed to help locals beat the winter blues in Leith.

Yule Fest will be a cosy celebration of EH6’s thriving bar scene, bringing hygge to the streets of Leith, alongside a host of limited-edition winter warmer cocktails, special food discounts and exclusive events to help you get into the yuletide spirit.

Bring some festive cheer to the long, dark nights of winter by heading to one (or two… or all) of the 17 partner bars, where you can enjoy special seasonal cocktails for just £5. Want in on the action? All you need to do is purchase a festival pass for £5 from yulefestleith.com - valid throughout the duration of Yule Fest, show it in participating bars to claim your exclusive discounts and signature cocktails.


Beloved bars including The Lioness of Leith, Finn & Bear, Nobles Cafe Bar & Restaurant, The Roseleaf, Sofi’s and Malmaison have all come together to create an exciting programme of cocktails, events and offers for Leith locals to look forward to. Venues like The Granary, Bar Brig and the Black Pig & Oyster will also be hosting some special seasonal events to help you have a very happy holiday, including cheese and mulled wine evenings at Tapa, and a fabulously festive Christmas market at Sofi’s, to help you get your Christmas shopping done (and an excuse to enjoy a cocktail afterwards, what more could you want?).

Sponsored by both the award-winning Oro Gin and Edinburgh’s favourite taxi company, Central Taxis, and organised by the teams behind Malmaison on The Shore and the Boda Bar Group, proceeds from Yule Fest Leith festival passes will be donated to two local charities supporting Leith residents. The first, Hidden Door, is an arts organisation which opens up urban spaces as a platform for emerging artists, musicians and filmmakers; they were most recently responsible for restoring Leith Theatre as a live music venue earlier this year. The second, Leithers Don’t Litter, is a community initiative dedicated to keeping the streets of Leith clean, safe and litter-free for current residents and future generations.
