This a cool, fun pub with a dungeon/halloween kind of theme and rock music. Definitely in the dive bar category. It really is a labyrinth with many rooms and tunnels. Drinks are cheap and people seemed friendly but more of a young crowd. We didn't...More

Cocktails and Die Hard what's not to love. The pitchers of cocktails are cheap. This is a rock bar so might not suite everyone. There was plenty of seating and a good live band. Bit much for me but my more heavy metal friends really...More

I la-la-love Banshee and bring almost everyone here. It is a dive bar so don't expect anything fancy but the beer selection is decent, the staff are ace and it's a really cool building. The cinema is sick and there's often some really cool gigs...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
