As part of the festival, we’ve created signature cocktails at our Apex Waterloo Place Hotel and Apex Grassmarket Hotel so if you’ve got an Edinburgh Cocktail Week wristband, you can sip on our skilfully shaken concoctions for just £4. Find out about our two signature cocktails, Earl’s Martini and Lady Marmalade Martini, here and read on to find out about the dynamic events we’re hosting.

An Evening with Eden Mill

Join us at our Apex Waterloo Place Hotel for a tasting event like no other. We’re collaborating with Eden Mill to bring you a one-of-a-kind ginspired masterclass on Thursday 17 October from 7pm-8.45pm that’ll allow you to sample a range of Eden Mill cocktails with our Chef’s delicious pairing canapes.

The ginspirational event costs just £20 and includes an Earl’s Martini on arrival (made with our very own gin, The 1819), a gin-themed quiz and a lesson on how to create the perfect serve. You’ll also get to sample three of Eden Mill’s popular gins and one of their new Love Gin Liqueurs, as well as getting a goody bag to take away with you.

After the event, relax in Elliot’s bar and enjoy a menu of £4 cocktails made from The 1819 gin – available for one night only. Get your tickets for the event here.

Morning Yoga Overlooking Edinburgh Castle with Seedlip

If you like your morning yoga with a view, join Apex Grassmarket Hotel and Seedlip for a morning of non-alcoholic cocktails and restorative yoga overlooking Edinburgh Castle.

Loren from Meadowlark Yoga will be leading a general level Vinyasa class, with foundations in Ashtanga yoga (suitable for beginners and experienced students alike) on Saturday 19 October from 11am-12.30pm. Loren has been practising yoga for over 10 years and teaching it for five, and was initially drawn to the practice due to the physical recovery and mental downtime it provides. We can’t wait to experience Loren’s passion for yoga and think the views from our fifth floor Heights venue will complement her class perfectly.

If you come along to the event, not only will you get to enjoy a restorative yoga practice with showstopping views, you’ll also get to sample three refreshing Seedlip cocktails, including their signature NOgroni, plus get a stylish Seedlip tote bag with goodies to take away with you. Sign up for the event here
