Easily the best dark wee clubbing spot in Edinburgh, guaranteed a fun / sweaty night, where there is so little space, no one can see your lame shapes! Occasional live music there too earlier in the evening.

I've had too many delightful experiences at Sneakies to fit into one review, so I'll focus on my last visit for the purpose of this post.
To keep it concise, I've divided my review into two short bullet-point lists documenting the positives and negatives of my night. These are as follows:

● sensations bright and intense, (music was a frenzied blur of delectable vibrations)
● mild to extreme mood lift, euphoria
● feelings of comfort, belonging, and closeness to others
● decreased fear, anxiety, and insecurities
● increased willingness to communicate, (lots of time spent outside, despite being non-smoker)
● urges to hug and kiss people
● a sense of inner peace and acceptance of self, others, and the world

● possible liver toxicity
● difficulty concentrating, and problems with activities requiring linear focus
● inappropriate and/or unintended emotional bonding

So overall, a most enjoyable time was had. I can soundly advise you to recommend Sneaky Petes to all of your friends. Especially those poncy George Street types; I haven't had a new Iphone since March last year.

Sneaky Pete's is tiny but this made for a intimate gig which was thoroughly enjoyable Bar was well stocked with some good rums and most importantly perhaps Red Stripe lager. Bar staff were quick and helpful despite being on her own on a gig night! From what we saw the bar seems to do various themes each night of the week - will return whenever back in Edinburgh and would recommend others to do so.

Good music and lively with quite a good crowd. Don't go if you are into chart music.

First you don't think much of it - it is a pretty small place. But the music is great, staff is really friendly, prices are ok, and quite a lot of people go there. The only negative - almost no seating, prob since it is such a small place.
