Loads of bars + loads of offices = brilliant after work drinks. So where do you go? We’ve put together a list of some of our current favourites who are offering us great deals. 

Starting on George Street, the recently renovated The Printing Press has space, pulls in a mixed crowd and has a great choice of cocktails. Better still, if you’re a member of the i-on club, you get 20% off your entire drinks bill.

Around the corner and down the hill, Rabble is the fresh, light and breezy refurbed reincarnation of Rick’s. A good one for the naughty smokers too with outdoor seating and heaters. Try the very delicious i-on members' club cocktail, a gin based delight for just £5. If you’re a member and fancy staying on for dinner, you’ll get a glass of fizz too.

Tonic on Castle St, is another favourite haunt and the £5 i-on cocktail, again for members (sorry!), is a Pornstar martini. Nice. Up the Mound and into the uber-stylish Epicurean on the ground floor of the G&V Royal Mile Hotel, you'll find a bar perfectly tailored to whatever your mood with  intimate private tables (ideal for dining), spacious booths (perfect for long overdue catch-ups between friends over a cocktail or two), and  plenty of space to stand or sit at the bar where you can enjoy a spot-on selection of cocktails. Did we mention you get 20% off all drinks and bar snacks with an i-on membership?

EpicureanAnd, down on the Shore in Leith, Malmaison has cocktails for £5 and 20% off food and drinks bill for i-on members. 


And if you fancy carrying on the party at home, Vino are offering members 20% off a box of Prosecco.

Try the i-on Members’ club for more offers and upgrades for just £29.99 for one year.
