One of Edinburgh’s hottest cocktail bars, The Cocktail Mafia is due to open a pop-up bar in June on the Forth Floor of Harvey Nichols. From the team behind The Raging Bull on Lothian Road, The Cocktail Mafia opened in December 2021 and has become a firm favourite with the city’s night time crowd. Oozing glamour and elegance with a theatrical flair it’s set to bring its one-of-a-kind drinking experience to Harvey Nichols for the summer.
The cocktail bar, renowned for its experimental drinks list, has curated a summer menu that features some of its best-sellers like ‘Pinky & the Brain’ made with Darnley’s Gin & St Germain and ‘Mangoes for a tropical vacation’ that includes Deadman’s Fingers Mango rum, Bacardi Carta Negra, Adriatico Orgeat, lime sherbet, mango, orange, and Tiki bitters. New to the menu and exclusive to the pop-up are a range of refreshing and sophisticated tipples such as the ‘Peach and pomello spritz’, an innovative take on the classic spritz and ‘Watermelon Tommy’ that has El Sueno Watermelon Tequila, lime, watermelon and agave. The 30-cover pop-up has been designed by local interior designer, Golnar Mattot. It incorporates the west-end bar’s rich and sultry colour palette to give it a sophisticated look and feel.
Nick Madigan, Managing Director, Pinnacle Hospitality which owns The Cocktail Mafia, said, “We are so excited to launch our summer pop-up at Harvey Nichols. The team have been working hard on the menu to bring shoppers and visitors a piece of The Cocktail Mafia to the other side of town.”
Nestled in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town, the Forth Floor at Harvey Nichols is an ideal hot spot for customers looking to wine and dine in the city centre of Scotland’s capital. Whether it’s a coffee pit stop, a leisurely lunch with friends, a spot of Afternoon Tea or an indulgent dinner, for nearly 20 years the Forth Floor has catered to Edinburgh’s fashion-forward foodies, offering all day dining seven days a week. The Cocktail Mafia pop-up will be positioned at the very heart of the Forth Floor adjacent to the Brasserie and Harvey Nichols Wine Shop, which offers a carefully curated selection of fine wines and Champagnes, as well as an extensive edit of artisan spirits and rare whiskies. Beyond the Wine Shop, customers can also browse the Foodmarket, brimming with the latest and most fashionable food, including the luxury range of Harvey Nichols hampers.
Marc Henry, Forth Floor Hospitality Manager at Harvey Nichols Edinburgh said, “We are thrilled to welcome The Cocktail Mafia to the Forth Floor as we toast the start of summer in Edinburgh. Now food lovers and cocktail connoisseurs have yet another reason to visit, with the exciting new addition of The Cocktail Mafia pop-up. With an incredible team of inventive and creative mixologists, we have no doubt the bar will prove popular with our customers.”
The Cocktail Mafia summer pop-up will be located outside the Forth Floor Brasserie on the top floor of the luxury department store.
