Upmarket bistro. Nowhere to sit when I came looking for a quiet drink. Every table had reserved on it for diners even though most of them were empty. Much better option for a pint is the OXFORD PUB just up the street. Far better

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
