Luckily, Eat Out Edinburgh is returning for 2024, this year anticipating a bigger event than ever before, with 40 bars and restaurants taking part in a full month of incredible offers throughout March.
From weekend brunch, to business lunch, to dinner and drinks, Eat Out Edinburgh is designed to bring people together from across the Lothians for the chance to explore new cuisines and try special occasion restaurants for an accessible price while supporting the city’s vibrant hospitality sector.
The event saw an incredible response from both diners and restaurants in 2023, leading to this year’s campaign now being doubled to four weeks, allowing diners twice the time to take advantage of set menu deals and curated offers from venues throughout the capital’s dedicated Business Improvement District (BID). Some – of these limited-time offers include:
- BABA: A set 'Best of BABA' menu consisting of 5 dishes will be available each day of March priced at £27.50 per person, or a vegetarian menu for £25.50 per person.
- Tattu: A three course set menu consisting of a dim sum, small plate, and large plate will be available for £28pp on weekdays before 5pm.
- Hard Rock Café: In addition to 25% off a weekend breakfast, the Hard Rock is hosting a ‘Shake It Up’ Cocktail Masterclass for £25 a person, with a welcome drink on arrival and a chance to learn how to make 2 cocktails in the surroundings of the famous Hard Rock Cafe.
Run by Essential Edinburgh, the campaign highlights both established city favourites and exciting newcomers on the food scene with a host of restaurants, cafés, and bars from Princes Street to George Street, to Charlotte Square and St James Quarter to take part. Over 40 venues are expected to take part this year, with many restaurants returning for another year after a successful 2023
A full list of participating Edinburgh venues and offers is now available to browse on Eat Out Edinburgh’s website. Special events and exclusive offers are also available for city centre workers and Lothian Bus employees to show appreciation and increase footfall throughout the campaign period.
Emily Campbell Johnston, Senior Manager of Marketing & Communications at Essential Edinburgh, said: “2023’s Eat Out Edinburgh event was a huge success, with a fantastic turn out filling tables throughout the city centre so well that we saw a great opportunity to make this year even bigger, and create a month-long celebration of the city’s growing food & drink scene.
“With some of Edinburgh’s most exciting new restaurants opening in the BID, we anticipate an even wider range of venues taking part this year, with menus and offers to suit any occasion – giving locals, city centre workers and visitors from further afield a reason to get out, have fun and support the industry.”
