When we walked in, the venue was already busy and we were quickly shown to a very private table in the back. Having already tried their cocktails (see our review of the launch night here), I was super excited to try more.

To start we were recommended their signature cocktail Purple Rain – Lavender-infused Bombay Dry Gin, violet droplets, blueberries, lemon juice, honey.

It wasn’t long before the band started playing, so I kicked back, relaxed, and started to forget about long week that I had!

Live music is always a good addition to any meal, and after a couple of cocktails I started getting quite hungry. Having previously tried samples of their pizzas I was crawing a full one. I went for Jerk Chicken – blackened jerk chicken, garlic butter base, marinated buffalo mozzarella, sweet peppers, red onion, caramelised pineapple. My pizza was surprisingly very light and crispy and as a side dish I ordered some sweet potato fries, which I absolutely loved!

I could not be at Foundry39 and not snap a few pics of their beautiful industrial interior. I love the dark wood bar, brushed metalwork panels and the urban feel of the place.

Chocolate leather booths are perfect for group gatherings and leather high chairs suit more intimate catch ups.

I have to admit that I really admire the skills of the bartenders at Foundry 39. Having worked in a few of the most well known bars in Edinburgh, I always appreciate how hard a job it is. My second cocktail was Maple’s Smoked Old Fashioned 7.95 Bulleit Bourbon, maple syrup, bacon bitters, pecan-smoked. I was just standing in front of the bar, like a kid waiting for a candy, staring at my cocktail being smoked.
