Lord Of The Rings The Cocktail Geeks Edinburgh | DesignMyNight

From the Orcs Draught to Gollum's riddles, this is one for LOTR fans.

Rewind to 2019 and masters of all things boozy, The Cocktail Geeks, took us on a wild ride to Game of Thrones. Then they stepped out of Westeros and into the Summer of '85 with a drink-fuelled affair dedicated to Stranger Things. Now? The Edinburgh drinks pros are taking us There & Back Again with their latest experience dedicated to the iconic works of J. R. R. Tolkien.

Whether you're an old-school Lord of the Rings fan, or new to Middle Earth via The Rings of Power, you're in for a journey down the hobbit hole. Inspired by the iconic works, this immersive cocktail spot is boasting boozy creations that will transport you to another world complete with candlelit tables and a map of Mordor on the walls. 

There's the fiery Orcs Draught; a bloody mary-style tipple made with ancho chile verde, mezcal, licorice and pineapple, over to mocktails and mead for those of you after something a little more chilled. Don't miss the Riddles in the Dark - 4 cocktails that you can only order if you can solve Gollum's enigma.

How precious.

There & Back Again is bookable here until the end of January at The Edinburgh Arches, 27 East Market Street, EH8 8FS. For more Edinburgh news, sign up for our future newsletter.
