#1 of 213 Nightlife in Edinburgh
We later did the pub crawl with Sandemans which was great as well, very well organized and has a good mix of different kinds of bars to experience a variety of aspects of Edinburgh's nightlife.
It's a quick and fun way to see many of the cities important sites, discover the craziest stories of this Scottish capital and learn about the most interesting museums and bars to visit after the tour.

Recently did the excellent Leith beer tour with Sara which included great visits to the Stewart Brewing Dockside Tap and the Campervan Brewery as well as a stop off in a bar along the Shore.
Myself and my husband went on the beer tour yesterday with Sara, we had such a good time and Sara is very knowledgeable and took us to hidden gem bars.

Afterwards, we stayed for a drink at a very well stocked bar, with beer for all tastes and had a great chat with the nights performers.
The only reason I was initially hesitant to write this review is that this club appears to be a hidden gem in Edinburgh, one the city can be extremely proud of, and I'm nervous that when the masses discover it, a...

Stramash is the best find in Edinburgh nightlife.
... size and height; great dance area with three sides all busily perfectly formed 2 level auditorium withholding balcony at first floor with superb views of performance.. Three separate bars means little queuing.

Whiski Bar & Restaurant
#9 of 213 Nightlife in Edinburgh
I came to Edinburgh on business and had four nights to explore meals and nightlife.
Situated close to Edinburgh Castle, on Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile, Whiski Bar has a warm, relaxed atmosphere, with shabby chic décor and mood lighting creating the perfect environment to sample a ‘wee dram’.

Bar service (specifically, Katie from Canada), was super helpful guiding two rookies through a whiskey flight and live music and an intimate venue... was a great evening.
Rose Street itself is a lovely place to sit and eat/drink the atmosphere inside and out is buzzing, especially at night time with all the busy bars, plenty of good music and the fairy lights above.

Whiski Rooms
#20 of 213 Nightlife in Edinburgh
After the tasting, we were invited to sit in the bar area so he could finish his whisky and I enjoyed a glass of wine, along with the BEST Humous and flatbread I’ve ever eaten.
I am a true novice and left feeling like I can ask for what I really want at any bar and background knowledge on the fascinating distilling process.
Dragonfly Cocktail Bar
#21 of 213 Nightlife in Edinburgh
The environment is conducive of good conversation but still has the nightlife edge.
The bar men were both cool and down-to-earth, serving us fun and interesting cocktails; their entire menu is infact more of these inventive cocktails that you'd expect to see in central London's premiere bars.
Sandy Bells
#22 of 213 Nightlife in Edinburgh
Great little bar where every customer is made to feel welcome by excellent bar staff and friendly locals.
The bar is small and crowded, but it seems like there's always a jam session going on, with talented musicians and a broad mix of traditional instruments.
Kays Bar
#23 of 213 Nightlife in Edinburgh
This is a great, honest Scottish bar that serves excellent and great value lunches washed down with a large selection of well looked after hand pulled ales.
Met a young bar tender, Euan, helped us select the perfect beer and food.

Beautiful bar with fantastic drinks and a great team, make sure you try either the "Date in Manhattan" or "Can't Sleep Till Brooklyn" My favourite bar in Edinburgh.

Athletic Arms
#26 of 213 Nightlife in Edinburgh
Safe and inviting, very friendly and knowledgeable staff, well cared for ales and delicious bar snacks.
The Diggers is a welcome contrast to the mostly bland bars that inevitably fill the city centre drinking requirement, well worth the walk and its not your keg beer local bar either.
