Bars/Pubs for live Music

Hi All, Heading to Edinburgh this weekend with the wife. We're both early 30's and really looking forward to it. We're staying pretty central and are looking for some good bars with decent live rock/alternative music. Any suggestions? Would be helpful if the pubs had a decent smoking area.

Also, are there any good places in particular to go on a sunday night. Any what's the standard time time that pubs close on a sunday. Want to make the most of the weekend away so don't want and early night on sunday.

Cheers Folks

There is wide variation in music ongoing in the bars etc so you may wish to look at the The List, Edinburgh as that will show you what is on at a number of bars etc over the weekend.

The Three Sisters pub in Cowgate used to do decent live music. Don't know if it still does though.

Bannerman's on the Cowgate have good live rock music on a Saturday afternoon.
