Pokemon Food & Drink Stops in Edinburgh

I haven’t got into the whole Pokemon Go craze that’s sweeping the world just now but I do love the fact that Edinburgh bars and restaurants are jumping in on the action – here are a few where you can fuel both yourself and your new-found Poke habit. Feel free to let us know of others that we can add in (with pics if possible).

Treacle Bar and Kitchen 

Living up to its Weeaboo status, Asian styled cocktail bar Treacle has embraced the Pokémon craze. Every Thursday and Tuesday until 16th August between 3-5pm, the bar will be footing the bill for Pokémon lures to attract rarer critters to the area. Trainers in the area are invited to stop by for an Asian cocktail and catch some of Japan’s most popular exports!

The Blackbird Bar and Restaurant

Treacle’s sister bar in Brunstfield, known for its legendary beer garden, are also taking part. The iconic bright orange racing bicycle which dons The Blackbird’s door lintel has been immortalised in the mobile game and is sure to become a popular spot for players in the city. Wannabe Pokémon Masters can find lures set up by the bar on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons between 3-5pm until 16th August.

 Illegal Jacks 

Illegal Jacks is one of the few venues in Edinburgh to be set up as Pokémon Gym by Niantic, and they’ve been quick to take advantage. Witty signs now sit in the window encouraging players to “Pokémon In” and it’s not unusual to spot groups of friends intently staring at their phones whilst inside.

 The Blue Blazer 

Word on the streets of Kanto is that The Blue Blazer is perfectly situated between two Pokéstops, and a gym which means fruitful item farming and experience grinding. Unfortunately the bar don’t quite understand the implication, but let’s hope they get on board soon! Still; a nice pit stop for your Poké-Tour.
