This is not your typical pub crawl! We visit 5 bars which include: (depending on the day) an Edinburgh local, a traditional Scottish pub, an underground rock bar, a travellers hang out, a bar made from recycled materials and an old church turned live music venue. Our last bar is perfect for dancing and/or just speaking with the friends you've made!

Drinking games is just some of the things you will be getting up to, alongside shots and exclusive drink deals in every place. We don't just go from bar to bar, we go from scene to scene.

We spend 30/45 minutes in each place, giving you plenty of time to finish your drink - with the tour lasting just over 3 hours.

Our crawl has purposly been made affordable as we want to invite and allow everyone to come on and experience Scottish nightlife.
