House of Gods is a flamboyant boutique hotel chain with just two sites, the flagship being the original in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. Think four poster beds, swathes of red velvet and sparkling disco balls; it's the perfect place for a romantic weekend away for visitors, or if you live locally, an indulgent spot for a cocktail.

At the Edinburgh site, the cocktail bar resembles a vintage smoking room, decked out with leather, Chesterfield banquettes, panelled wooden walls and vintage-style lamps, fringed with tassels. From get-togethers with friends to cosy date nights, this spot is full of panache and atmosphere to boot.

If you're based in Glasgow, the second House of Gods hotel is another fantastic spot for a cocktail, whether it be a wild soiree later into the evening, or a quick drink before dinner. Inspired by a railway carriage, this incredible space is something to behold. With gold-toned furniture covered in animal print, stunning wall murals and exotic palms, it's a place to see and be seen.

And, in the warmer months, Glasgow locals can also enjoy the lush rooftop called the Sacred Garden, known as a little Eden in the midst of the city's hustle and bustle. Here, you'll find rustic textures like terracotta tiles and exposed brick, juxtaposed by boutique furnishings and plush upholstery.

Reservations can be made online and tables will be held for 15 minutes, so be sure to give the team a call if you're running a little late. Plus, if you're planning a private party, there are some venue options for small and larger groups, so get in touch to chat about your options. As for the menu, there aren't any examples online but the bar staff are known for their mixology skills and there should also be a selection of bar snacks available too, perfect for late-night nibbles.
