Venue bars and cafés

C viva - Viva bar, the Cellar, and restaurant options at Baba and the Garden

The popular festival bar in our newest venues serves food and drink until late, including signature cocktails. The perfect place for pre-show discussions and post-show analysis. Restaurant dining options also available at Baba and The Garden.

C aquila - Roman Eagle Bar

Atmospheric Festival bar on the Royal Mile opposite the International Festival Hub. Ideally suited if you need to grab a drink and snack between shows at C aquila, C cubed, or C at Makars' Court, or if you're near the Royal Mile. For food on the go, we recommend the The Little Inn coffee shop next door, and for sit-down food, the Deacon's House Café at C cubed, Brodie's Close, just along the Lawnmarket.

C cubed - Deacon's House Café

Soak up the sun in the peaceful gardens at St Peter’s. A Festival oasis offering tasty hot and cold food and thirst-quenching drinks in the heart of the main Fringe accommodation area. Signature summer drinks include Aperol Spritz, Kir Royale and Pimm's. Our Festival Gin Bar features hand-picked Gins from around the world.
