The Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh


The Grass is Always Bluer

Favourite bar?

Hoot the Redeemer on Hanover St, Edinburgh. Oh, and Mr Wow’s Emporium in Melbourne.

Weirdest comment you have heard from a customer?

Customer in busy cocktail bar: “What soft drinks do you do?”
Me: “The usual: Coke, Lemonade, Orange Juice, Apple…”
Customer: “Ok then, I’ll just have a Snicker’s Bar

Me: “…erm”

Also this one –
Customer: “What’s your wifi password?”
Me: “cocktails – all lower case”
Customer 3 mins later: “I’ve tried a few times, the passwords not working – cocktakers, lower case yeah?”
Me: “…not quite”

What’s the funniest thing you have seen in a bar?

After thinking it would be funny to take a bite of a cucumber in our fruit bowl, the customer was then told that he had to either leave or eat the whole cucumber. So yeah, watching a grown man simultaneously eat a whole cucumber whilst realising the error of his ways was quite special.

Your favourite secret bartender saying:

“Nice shoes!”

Your favourite cocktail:

Right now it’s a slushy Jungle Bird from Hoot the Redeemer – Rum, Campari, lime, pineapple, slushy

Why do you love Buffalo Trace?

Stir it up, sip it down or shot it back – one of the most versatile spirits on our bar. Great heritage and great flavour – what more do you need!? And it’s in our speed rail – absolute winner!
