My dear guests…
I was born in a castle near Alnwick, Northumberland and have never known who my parents were. I was left with enough funds, through various guardians for my boarding school education in Edinburgh. This was arranged by my Newcastle solicitors who are the Trustees of my entitlements. Incidentally, they were extremely helpful in getting me out of a bit of bother in North Shields just recently.
Educationally, I was particularly good at science and majored in Meteorology, which was some what of a mystery until I invented ways in which to duplicate the weather. Baromoters, whilst simple to read, were of great help to explain the displacement of gravity to me. My great inventing friend – Phileas Fogg calls me The Barologist, this is echoed by my drinking buddy Johnnie Walker from Kilmarnock.
I now live here in Leith and I welcome you to my house, which shows a lot of my work. I’m fortunate in that my legacy allows me to carry on my inventions as it’s rumoured that I could be from an aristocratic or royal background.
I have invented most of my contraptions in the name of Ulysses G Houston but my real name is George “Geordie” Armstrong.
A warm welcome to my humble home, please make yourself comfortable and feel free to peruse my many inventions.
Visited with wife and grandchildren to one of Edinburgh’s newest bar/ restaurant. A quite sensational decor greeted us. Many quirky embellishments adorn the various different spaces in this intriguing new enterprise coupled with amazing well priced food and drinks.Can not compliment the staff enough who added to the enjoyment of perfect visit. We had only dropped in for a drink but eventually stayed for the full eating experience from a delightful entertaining menu. A new not to be missed Edinburgh/leith attraction.
Popped in for cocktails Saturday night to a bustling, busy, vibrant establishment. A feast for the eyes, so much going on. The Barologist has themed itself on the 4 Seasons with each season decorated accordingly. Cocktails were fabulous, loved the top hats and garb of the staff. Need to visit again in the daytime and have another look when less busy. Fabulous all round.
From the guy outside the door, front of house and our waitress...everyone was friendly and helpful. An extensive menu and great food. Definitely recommend this place but would advise to book as was really busy at weekend.
