Visited a couple of time during our visit. Everyone seemed to know each other and were friendly to visitors. Plenty of comfy chairs as well as a nice little dance floor.

This was a major improvement over an earlier appointment at a certain aggressive, homophobic little place in Leith named Joseph Pearce. After a gruelling affair (no pun intended as I'm a semi closet case) at the aforementioned horrible little bar, this place was a ray...More

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
