#1 of 221 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.
His dramatic presentation and trove of back stories made the 2 hour tour fly by and his personal, follow-up email listing cafes, restaurants, bars, shops and other Edinburgh highlights was greatly appreciated!

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.
Monkey Barrel Comedy
#3 of 221 Nightlife in Edinburgh
The comedy is reasonably priced, the bar has a great selection of beers, the staff are friendly, the atmosphere is warm and inviting but most of all the comedy is amazing.
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...

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’.

The Black Cat
#16 of 221 Nightlife in Edinburgh
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.
... each distillery, etc. in my humble opinion it is a much better value option than going on some tourist-specific whisky tour - this bar had a mix of visitors and locals, a relaxed vibe, and outstanding service.

Whiski Rooms
#22 of 221 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.

Athletic Arms
#28 of 221 Nightlife in Edinburgh
Local bar and a good atmosphere will be back when visiting again.
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.
The Regent Bar
#29 of 221 Nightlife in Edinburgh
Lots of variety of ales, lovely simple foods very reasonably priced and great bar snacks.
