Our Story

The Boda Bar group was founded in 2004 by Anna and Mike Christopherson, Swedish natives who have called Edinburgh home for the last 16 years. After opening their first venue, Boda Bar on Leith Walk, Anna & Mike found that the people of Edinburgh really embraced the Swedish way of life. Over the years, the Boda family has grown to eight venues and 104 members of staff, truly becoming a treasured part of the Edinburgh bar scene.

The Boda way of life is all about friends, fun, partying and happiness, all rolled into one. We make sure all of our bars are like a home from home - somewhere you can relax, spend time with friends, enjoy good food and drinks and always feel welcome.
