Foyer Bars

The Festival Theatre is equipped with three bars located on two levels, all serving a selection of hot and cold drinks and a small selection of bar snacks. The bars open one hour before the performance starts. 

The Edinburgh Gin Bar

This bar is located on the first floor foyer and can service audience members sitting in all areas of the auditorium. This bar offers the full range of drinks available at the Festival Theatre.

The Wine Bar

This bar specialises in offering a varied and distinguished range of wines, champagne and whiskies, and is situated in the first floor foyer. For wine lovers, be sure to come by to see what we have to intrigue your palate.

​​Milburn Gallery

Located on level 2, you can enjoy a drink looking out to the magnificent views of Arthur's Seat and the Crags across Surgeons Hall.

Tip: The Milburn is the closest bar to the upper circle, but it's often the quietest bar pre-show to enjoy the views and avoid the queues.
