The Voodoo Rooms was awarded the title "Best Cocktail Bar" in our first year, courtesy of Scottish Licenced Trade News, and we have continued to build upon this high standard under the stewardship of manager Iain McPherson and his team of top mixologists. Our new cocktail list aims to keep up the high standard set so far. It is presented in four fantastical themed sections, plus our current specials so please read on and see what tickles your fancy.
Please note that we are more than happy to make any classic cocktail if you prefer.
