Gin Takeover

Gin lovers rejoice! The Vesta Gin Takeover is here.

We’ve invited 10 unique gin brands to takeover Vesta and together, we’ve serving up masterclasses, sampling, drinks promotions & more!

Each gin will visit Vesta for two weeks each, with G&T and cocktail offers, running Monday to Friday EVERY week.


EVERY Friday 5-7pm, enjoy FREE guest gin samples, masterclasses, nibbles, top tunes and special cocktail promotions!


£1 from every ‘Vesta Serve’ sold will go to our partners, Social Bite and our mission to end homelessness. Amazgin!

We kick things off in style with our good friends, Arbikie Gin on the 1st July 2019.

We’ll gin to that!

Vesta Bar & Kitchen is now closed. 

We'd like to thank everyone, our fabulous customers, suppliers, friends and family who have supported us over the last few years. Together, through our Pay It Forward service, we have served over 11.000 two-course meals to people experiencing homelessness which is, quite simply, outstanding.

With the sale of the building, while it's time for pastures new for owner David Hall and the team, we're delighted to say, our Pay It Forward service has a new home at The Bon Vivant on Thistle Street! This will start in January 2024.


All bookings at Vesta from Sunday 22nd October are sadly cancelled. A member of our team will be in touch with anyone booked for Christmas, as we would like to offer alternate venues for your celebrations. If you have paid a deposit, this will be refunded.

In the meantime, don't hesitate to contact with any queries.

Once again, thank you for your support  - we've had an amazing time on Queensferry Street and we know the spirit of Vesta, and our vital work, will live on at The Bon Vivant.

David Hall and the Vesta Team
