Forty Advisor 17-19th January

Edinburgh Edition

This week we’re heading to the capital to see the top things to see, do and eat are! Here’s our top picks of what’s going on! 

El Cartel

A firm favourite of the Forty Team, El Cartel is a Mexican street food eatery which is unmissable. With a menu of tacos and small plates, El Cartel offers you the opportunity to try a wide variety of dishes. The Guacamole with plantain chips and pomegranate is unreal and the bombers are to die for. With daily changing frozen margaritas also on offer this is one of our top picks for Edinburgh eatery’s.

Hoot the Redeemer

We love a speakeasy here at Forty and Hoot the Redeemer truly takes you back in time. Upon entry you will encounter a Zoltar machine leading you into the New Orleans funfair themed bar. With cinema seating and puppet theatre DJ booth this is a bar like no other. With an extensive menu of cocktails, boozy ice cream and claw machine which offers you the chance to make your own drink this is a truly innovative bar which is a must visit.

Lala @ Fly Club Caberet Voltaire

Fresh off her Circoloco debut Lala makes her return to Fly this weekend. Originally hailing from Glasgow Lala became the breakout star of Fly in 2019 when she played her first Boiler Room set at last years Fly open air festival alongside the likes of Folamour. With more bright things in her future, we highly recommend heading down to Fly this Friday to catch her in action.


You may have seen this recently opened  Asian Fusion restaurant all over your Instagram over the last few months. With a Chinese inspired menu full of culinary delights such as sticky beef short ribs and Szechuan sea bass. Along with their impressive food menu they offer a drinks menu filled with theatrical cocktails. A can’t be missed experience.

Silent Disco Adventure Tour

This is a truly different way to see the sights of Edinburgh! A one hour guided tour filled with singing and dancing will let your inhibitions fly away, the Silent Disco Adventures is bound to be a laugh. Head to the capital with your friends and sing your heart out to the songs at this silent disco through the streets of Edinburgh. You’re bound to get some funny looks but you’ll be having too much fun to care!
There’s plenty to get up to in Edinburgh this weekend and while you’re out and about don’t forget to tag #FortySpotted if you’re wearing Forty!
