About Mother's Bar & Kitchen
Gin bar and kitchen in New Town
Mother’s Bar and Kitchen is a gin-focused bar on Howe Street in Edinburgh’s New Town. It is a fun place with bowler hat lights hanging over the bar alongside the occasional touch of Victoriana and big screens for the major sporting events. There are booths, banquette seating, a couple of nooks and crannies plus a compact outside seating area for the sunny days. In short, Mother’s will look after you whether you want to watch the match with friends, have brunch with family or dinner with a date.
Wide ranging bar food
Gin may be the primary focus at Mother’s on Howe Street but the kitchen part of the name should not be overlooked. There is a selection of big and small bites for grazing along with sharing platters -ideal for the after work drinkers. Typical choices might be the haggis bon bons, the milk stout chicken wings or the gin-cured salmon on oatcakes.
Popular main courses include the chicken and bacon on ciabatta; the house burger, rib-eye steak; the beer battered catch of the day and, perhaps more unusually, a jambalaya. Weekend brunches, roasts and regular promo nights ensure that Mother’s is always loved.
