Huge cocktail & shooter menu...staff take extra care to get them right. Buzzing atmosphere with good tunes! Pricey but worth it

My wife and I were on a wee break to Edinburgh doing the tourist thing and popped in here for lunch. Can't speak for it in the evenings but we had a great lunch!
Shared a nachos, simple dish often screwed up but perfect here, melted cheese all the way through and plenty of salsa, guac and cream.
Both had burger for main and they were perfect too. Just right size (some are stupidly big so they fall out of the bun in other places), quality meat and a range of inspired filling choices.
Staff were all helpful and attentive.
If I lived in Edinburgh I'd go several times a week. As it is, will be there on my next visit.
Well done Bar Kohl!

This is a very good bar. Well used by local people. It is a vodka bar but there are a wide range of drinks available.

Bar Kohl has changed its vibe since I lived in Edinburgh some 6/7 years ago, now feeling more like a student-ish bar-cafe than a pure vodka bar with an r'n'b feel, but it still didn't disappoint on the drinks front. Surprisingly quiet on a driech Saturday afternoon however. Nevertheless, still an Edinburgh legend in my eyes, and still recommended to all my friends who visit the city.

The drinks here are great, staff know their stuff and the bar is well stocked.
The blackboard of various flavoured vodkas is great!

In terms of atmosphere, the place doesn't seem to relfect the querky drinks on offer and it feels a bit plain. Would be inclined to spend more time here if it had more of a warm atmosphere and comy seating.

Would still return here for the great drinks.
