The bar, which has also made its mark at pop ups across the UK, is visiting Edinburgh for the first time and promises a novel experience for Christmas shoppers, workers, visitors and families alike.

“The location is right in the heart of the city centre with such fantastic travel links for visitors and locals of Edinburgh.

“This brand new pop up will continue to provide a very current and relevant offering to our customers throughout the festive period and is perfect for our overall vision we are striving to achieve for our rooftop area here at Waverley Mall.”

The unique menu has something on offer for everyone as they feature both hot and cold cocktails with a festive twist, beers from around the world, local ales and stouts and an extensive wine list.

Festive favourites such as mulled wine and hot chocolate will also be on offer as well as teas and coffees to combat the cold weather.

Maria Farrugia, Co-Founder of Thor’s said: “We have always admired the Christmas offering in Edinburgh and are thrilled that we can now be part of it.

“We have welcomed thousands of people across the country over the last four years to enjoy the unique festive atmosphere that we pride ourselves on and we hope the people of Edinburgh will enjoy the experience as well.

“Our roaring fire, ambient lighting and friendly staff create a delightful space to get you in the festive mood.

“Families, friends and even dogs are welcome in our tipi. Step inside and experience Christmas in a cup!”

Jacquelyn Stewart, Centre Manager for Waverley Mall said: “We are delighted to welcome the arrival of Thor’s Tipi Bar here at Waverley Mall’s iconic rooftop over the festive period.”
