The Regent Bar is well worth a visit. Just a few minutes from the city centre but a pub more for locals than tourists. Really friendly crowd, nice range of beers and whiskeys and good, honest Scottish pub food.

This colorful pub with flowers baskets outside caught our eye after a busy day of walking around the city. Inside there were comfortable chairs and cool decor, lots of beers on tap. Very relaxed and friendly LGBT bar.

Hello Roberta, we used to host an LGBT fundraising quiz once a month but we have new neighbours in the apartment above the pub and they complained so much about the noise that we had to cancel our events.
