Boasting the city's largest and most diverse collection of whisky, Whiski Rooms is an obvious pick for your Burns Night celebrations. Their week long calendar of events includes nightly supper clubs, where the menu will consist of cock-a-leekie soup, neeps and tatties, and of course, haggis, served with a delicious whisky cream sauce.

Doing Veganuary shouldn't mean compromising on any of the festivities. Luckily, Hendersons have created an entirely plant-based menu to mark the occasion, with dishes such as vegan haggis and 'Cullen Skink' soup topping the menu. There'll even be free fizz, canapes and poetry readings for all who attend.
