classic cocktails.

Joseph Pearce, Edinburgh
Joseph Pearce is a landmark in Edinburgh which has been open since 1898. It’s been a grocery shop, a wine merchant and now a restaurant and bar and the ultimate date bar in Edinburgh.
Just a few minutes’ walk from Princes Street, the new St James Quarter and the city centre, Joseph Pearce is the perfect place to stop for some drinks after a busy day at work or after shopping! It’s family friendly throughout the day, and yes, they do allow dogs too!
