Bar and pub operator The Speratus Group has opened a second site in Scotland for its burger, craft beer and cocktail concept The Boozy Cow.
After the success of the first in Aberdeen’s Netherkirkgate, the company launched the new site in the former premises of its cocktail bar Amicus Apple in Frederick Street in Edinburgh’s New Town last night.
The underground hideaway has been transformed with urban art, graffiti and back-to-basic furniture made of metal and wood. Open until 1am seven days a week, it will have DJs on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
The drinks list includes a strong selection of craft beer and original cocktails, including a list of “boozy shakes”.
The Boozy Cow has brought over its popular dishes such as the holy cow burger, mac ‘n’ cheese burger and dirty chicken burger as well as sides including coleslaw, fries and chilli cheese fries (pictured). Where possible, they source ingredients locally and working with local suppliers. No cutlery is provided as all food is intended for eating with your hands.
They are also bringing their popular chilli challenge to Edinburgh. Contestants are given 15 minutes to eat one chilli cheese burger, one chilli dog, one portion of chilli cheese fries and one Oreo milkshake. If you succeed, it is free, but if you fail, you pay.
Martin Brown, managing director of The Speratus Group, said: “We will be introducing to Edinburgh a new style of dining and drinking in a funky, edgy and urban environment. It’s about how you feel when you go to The Boozy Cow – we are the experience!”
The Speratus Group’s other sites include Paramount and Illicit Still in Aberdeen and 99 Hanover Street and The Golf Tavern in Edinburgh.
