Here at BUNKER we love late Nights, Great Beers, Spirits and Wines. We are the perfect place to go for a late night catch up, with live DJs 7 nights a weeks spinning different sets each night there's always something for everyone. BUNKER prides itself on great service, music and drink choices all in one late night pub environment!

I'll start off with a positive...it's not far from decent pubs if you make the mistake of walking in. What a dive. Located in essentially a basement, the ambiance strikes me as an ideal location for a vampire lair (little to no sunlight, horrible black...More

We love Edinburgh for many reasons, live music bars being pretty much top of the list. Only discovered this place through the gig guide. We couldn't stay all night but saw parts of sets from two acoustic solo artists and an excellent session from a...More

Whilst I'll not echo the comments below about it lacking Czech people - Irish bars staffed with Irish people abroad are the exception and not the rule - the bar itself is pretty rundown and the prices are robbery, even for Edinburgh. Also was full...More
