The Nor’ Loft signature is Champagne, understated yet sophisticated, where a tall glass is encouraged any day of the week. Our Champagne table, featuring a number prestigious labels, takes centre stage, so pull up a stool, grab a table or sink into one of our stylish sofas and join us for that Friday feeling, afternoon soirée or special moment. There’s also an outrageously good list of wines & spirits alongside a carefully curated selection of cocktails.

The ancient Nor’ Loch is steeped in the history of the city. Centuries ago it sat in front of Market Street at the foot of the Castle rock, now occupied by Princes Street Gardens, and was part of the natural defences of the old town to hinder invaders. Inspired by this historic icon the Nor’ Loft now takes its place in the rich tapestry of Edinburgh.
