Whats on in Edinburgh

May 17th, 2012 · No Comments · edinburgh

I am off on holiday from Edinburgh Festival Apartments for a couple of weeks so I thought I would post a little information on whats all going  on in Edinburgh over the next couple of weeks.

We have visitors coming from every part of the globe for all sorts of reasons!

Kicking off this weekend we have a group of lads staying with us that are going to Glasgow to watch the big cup final between the two Edinburgh premier football clubs Hearts and Hibs. The guys actually live in Portugal now but are traveling back to watch their team, I hope they don’t get caught up in the airport strikes! Instead of going out in Edinburgh, which will be jam packed the guys are opting to have a bit of a party in our townhouse at 31g. Hearts are the favourite to win – I really am not a footie fan but given that Edinburgh Festival Apartments is based in the West side of Edinburgh I expect we will have to go with them.

For those of you out and about on Saturday you may want to try something a bit different and away from the train stations when all those footie fans come back.

In the afternoon there is great band on in The Jazz Bar in Chamber Street and its FREE – The Mellotones Trio at 3pm, go check them out and get yourself in the mood for a good Saturday night.

This will be an ideal starting point for our group of girls staying at our George IV Residence to celebrate Laura Hen party.

Afterwards I would suggest they all head down to Whistle Binkies who do a great live rock and jazz session between 6pm and 9pm before it goes all hard rock.

For all the tourists staying in our Royal Mile apartments that would be good place to start and then around 9pm head over to the Mitre on the Royal Mile and listen to the sexy Raff who plays a good selection of Kings of Leon and the likes. After The Mitre you might want to head on for some more live music to dance to and for the over 25′s I would suggest The Jam House in Queen Street, the resident band play a fabulous range of up to date music and again have a super sexy lead singer.

If you are looking for a more relaxed intimate weekend like the guests we have staying this weekend in our smaller Royal Mile Apartment then I would recommend that you head down to Monteiths one of Edinburgh’s No1 restaurants for a truly scrumptious meal. The pork belly is delicious and you cant visit there without ordering a pot of Hendricks blossom Tea – simply the best cocktail in Edinburgh!!

Another truly great restaurant that is a favourite of ours here at Edinbugh Festival Apartments is Locanda de Gusti - it is an independent authentic Italian restaurant run by owner chef Rosario who makes the most delicious Italian food, the staff are also amazing, they really look after you from the minute you walk through the door, downstairs they have unique, quirky little bar with a huge wine cellar.

Because of all the amazing eating places we have in Edinburgh its a good idea on a Sunday to go for a good long walk up Arthurs Seat,

it is the main peak that form a group of hills which form the most of Holy-rood Park, the park has been written about by Robert Louis Stevenson about the magnitude and bold design. It is situated in the city centre and when you walk up to the top you can see all round the city and over to Fife.

Its easiest ascent is from the east where a grassy slope rises above Dunsapie Loch where you will find a large family of elegant swans.

Our limo company often take our tourists up to the top of Arthur’s Seat before going round the rest of the city.
