We were thrilled to win Best Outdoor Area at the SLTN Awards 2019 for our rooftop terrace.

The SLTN Awards saw coveted corkscrew trophies presented to Scotland’s top pubs, clubs, restaurants, staff and operators in front of an audience of 700 at the glittering awards ceremony in the Hilton in Glasgow on Thursday November 7th.

You won’t find snow (often) but you will find the spirit of Après ski and the best view of Edinburgh Castle to be found off the esplanade. Grab a fluffy blanket, a Gondola seat, and order your drams from a vintage Nissan van to take in the stunning views. Our rooftop is the jewel in our crown and a must-visit spot on the Grassmarket.

We recently worked with Highland Park Whisky to transform our terrace into the Highland Park House Top.

Jamie Butcha, deputy manager at Cold Town House, said: “At Cold Town House we are getting into the spirit of things by welcoming Highland Park to our famous rooftop terrace. Throughout autumn until 31 January guests will be able to sip on a warming Highland Park cocktail whilst cosying up by the fire puts and gazing up to our uninterrupted view of Edinburgh Castle.

Fancy seeing what all of the fuss is about? Join us on our rooftop terrace from 2pm every day.

Please note that we do not take reservations for the rooftop.
