AN Edinburgh business has been named cocktail bar of the year at the Scottish Bar and Pub Awards.
Bon Vivant, on Thistle Street battled against three other finalists to receive the accolade at the 22nd annual awards.
Comments made by judges during the visits included; “The mystery customers raved about the service. So much so they gave it 5.5 out of 5 and the judges were equally impressed. We enjoyed classic cocktails with a twist on the serve, such as the Disaronno Sour, which had the perfect balance of liqueur and juice. Bon Vivant is a great cocktail bar and worthy winner.”
Ben Harvey, general manager at Bon Vivant, said: “To be considered for any award is fantastic, but to actually make it through to the final and win is a huge boost for the whole team. We were surprised and excited to hear our name called out on the evening and are determined to continue to build on the bar’s success. We have a great team in place at Bon Vivant and I’d like to thank every single member of the team for making the bar the ‘best cocktail bar in Scotland’!”
