About Us

A Caribbean Seafaring
Experience in the
Heart of Edinburgh

The Cou Cou Corner is the premium Caribbean cocktail bar in the city centre of Edinburgh – discreetly hidden inside the facade of an old fishmonger.

For the lucky few who have found us, we offer live music and delicious cocktails, served by our friendly staff. Be sure to keep an eye out for our mascot, Fred the flying fish!
