I recommend especially the film screening events! It's a wonderful atmosphere and exceptional experience to watch your favourite movie outside with a drink in your hand with hundreds feeling alike! I also had a really nice experience on a casual Thursday evening - a little...More

Rented the karaoke booth for an hour for a Han party and had a blast! Rory was very attentive. Recommend to anyone. Very reasonable bar prices for Edinburgh, good music. Live band before karaoke and dj afterwards. We had a great night :)More

We found this bar while pub hopping in Edinburgh city centre. It is quite spacious with lot of counters for service. The crowd was good and the music was grooving! They had a live barbeque food counter though only a pizza option in veggies. But...More

'The Three Sisters' is a huge venue in the heart of Edinburgh, with a great atmosphere. I booked the 'Cheeky-chicks' hen-package for a party of 27, which took a fair bit of organising! The events staff were amazing from start-to-finish and went out their way...More

Don't be fooled by the word katsu. Literally dehydrated chicken burger with curry sauce on the side. Comes with cabbage salad which they try to pass off as a coleslaw. Ordered the haggis and cheddar fries which should have been fantastic although I'd have been...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
