Newington welcomes Camera basement bar

Camera cocktail

Restaurateur Trisha McCrae has opened a new basement bar called Camera in Newington, Edinburgh.

Located under the restaurant at 74-78 Clerk Street, the bar has its own private access door, fitted with its own doorbell which visitors must ring for entry.

The venue boasts a “quirky” interior design with a “homely but minimal feel”. Trishna’s husband Kevin was responsible for the creation and building of the vast majority of the furniture and fittings.

Camera’s drinks menu is split into four sections: beer, with draught, bottles and cans available; house hiball’s, an exploration of interesting spirits and mixers; wine, a rotating list of five wines changed every five cases; and cocktails.

The cocktail menu centres around providing “tasty and approachable” drinks, with a ‘market manu’, made up of works in progress and a catalogue of batched classics for those looking for something a little stronger.

The team hope that the opening of Camera will give locals another reason to stay closer to home and will bring more people to the south side of the city.
