Assembly has to be one of my favourite bars in Edinburgh.

Great quality food (so much to choose from!) and drink (esp wine and cocktails) at reasonable prices. Staff are attentive, efficient and friendly too.

Cool place to be any time of the day.

Keep it up guys.

I always thought they ruined this place when they renovated, Iguana was much cooler. Still, as with all Montpellier bars it has a pretty good cocktail list, decent bar food and good staff. Reasonably priced too, despite what other reviewers have said (if you can't afford it, stick to Wetherspoons)

I'd say a bit over priced, pretentious, devoid of atmosphere, and the service isn't great either... On the aesthetic side, it looks nice, as do the barmaids, but its more a place to avoid then to actually make an effort to get to. With so much competition, even within 5 mins walk, most of which is better... this place just loses out.
It does have seats outside for smokers though, so....

The title says it all.

She must have good taste...

Reasonably priced food and drink, good quality too.

It has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere - no feeling of impending violence you get in some places.

Once a week at least for me...and her!

Popped in there the last time i was in the area for a bite to eat. The food whilst fairly cheap had the whole microwave feel too it.

I've not been in Edinburgh long, but i'm thrilled with this place! The food's cheap, but don't get put off by the prices, generous portions and decent quality too!

Again with the drinks, just because there's 2-4-1 deals on cocktails, doesn't mean they're poor quality. Makes for a cheap and thoroughly enjoyable night out!

We just went the other night (Saturday) and despite them being stupidly busy due to the festival, they all coped really well and all seemed to have that "look happy even if you're not" charm about them that they usually have. Keep an eye out for the guy with tattoos too, he's hot ;)

I'd reccommend this place to anyone, but mainly people like me in their late teens to mid twenties who love their chic nights out.

Oh, DJ's to rival the best nightclubs in Edinburgh too, can't be bad!

Great work guys :)

What a cool place! All the food is under a fiver, the cocktail list is simple, great for classics. Their 241 drinks bring me back everytime, it's relaxed, great tunes, really friendly staff who you can have a conversation with and pleasing to the eye. This place has hit the nail on the head with me. Go there!!!! Trust me!!!

I am a big fan of Assembly - they have it spot on. The tunes and live dj's, great food for under a fiver, really chilled crowd (mostly stylish creatives)and friendly staff - no pretention here - a great pre-club venue.

Assembly bar has to be the easiest going cocktail bar in Edinburgh. I've always felt relaxed and comfortable there! The staff are really friendly,they never gave me the impression that they were above me, unlike some other style bars. Great value for money, great atmosphere and a cool cocktail list. Love it!
