The most haunted pub in Edinburgh! We did make a small trip to get to the bar which was initially a prison. Pay attention to the photos on the wall, you will love them!

Food was good, and dessert was absolutely awesome. We also had cream beer which I really liked. A must-visit place for anyone in Edinburgh

A great place to go if you enjoy a gruesome history behind your watering hole! Once Nicoll Edward's house (the name it used to carry before the Banshee Labyrinth; "Nicoll Edward's"!), this pub/nightclub was once housing bodies brought forth from the famous Burke and Hare, where they would be kept "fresh" in the cellar.

It has good food, drink and old horror movies on offer. Everyday is Halloween!! It also displays its very own torture instrument (where you can take a pic of yourself inside!), in the chamber full of limestone! Enjoy!!

A large club with loads of rooms including a cinema. They have live music on as well. It's a laid back atmosphere with a selection of beers, spirits etc.. The cocktail menu is a bit limited to vodka, so if you're not into voddy you can't have a cocktail. It's a friendly enough place though.

We visited in the very early evening and toured this interesting club. It is suited for young adults, but we were made to feel most welcome by the staff. Lot's of rooms built into the arches with decor suited to the spooky, which we found fun. Lot's of areas to sit, watch sports, listen to music, etc. You can ask them about the ghost stories of this club. There are a few. Food is served and the club gets really going around 11:00. Live music, too.
