Nestled in the shadow of George Heriots – the school that inspired Hogwarts – this August you can find the Hickory Bars Botanical Garden. Housed in the BBC Edinburgh Fringe bar complete with table tennis, a huge TV which you can watch if you pick up your wireless headphones and cosy blanket, live music on a stage with the castle in the background and even a cut out of everyones favourite Strictly gals – Claudia and Tess! What more could you need?
While enjoying the entertainment and even catching a glimpse of the wonderful Edinburgh Tattoo fireworks which are fantastic, you can refresh yourself with one of the Scottish gins that Hickory Bars has on offer. There is a gin from every corner of bonnie Scotland and I am 100% sure you will find the perfect G&T served alongside wholesome, home grown garnishes. There is a perfect garnish for each of the gins along with the perfect mixer. If a Scottish gin doesn’t float your boat, there is always the fantastic Hickory Fizz on tap. Yes, you read correctly, on tap. Fizz on tap is the dream pretty much and it has come true, thanks to the lovely Hickory Bars!
The pop up bar is the perfect stop between shows or for just getting out and enjoying that festival atmosphere. Get your gal pals, grab some headphones, a blanket and of course a class of Hickory Bars Fizz on tap and enjoy the beautiful fireworks in style. Don’t forget to share your photos (it didn’t happen if you don’t share it, right?) using #FizzyFringe and to see other snaps from the Hickory pop up bar.
