#170: Opium, Cowgate, Edinburgh

We skipped Sneaky Pete’s since there was a charge at the door (one of our many rules), and ended up in Opium. I’ve not been in here since it used to be called “Legends”, over 10 years ago. 196 more words

#169: The Three Sisters, Cowgate, Edinburgh

This is one of Edinburgh’s biggest pubs and attracts large crowds at the weekends, especially in the summer because of the large courtyard. On this visit, a Saturday night, it was busy with general revellers, stag dos and hen dos, a real party atmosphere. 257 more words

#167: Capital Bar, Cowgate, Edinburgh

At 930pm on a Saturday this is definitely more club than bar, complete with very cheap booze, disco lights, crap beer and lots of dancing. There were all sorts of punters from young to old, but mostly in their twenties. 188 more words

#166: Bannerman's, Cowgate, Edinburgh

Bannerman’s is one of Edinburgh’s most enduring live music venues, with big names from a wide range of genres playing here regularly. It makes good use of a large space beneath the South Bridge for gigs, but you have to get through the pub to reach it. 244 more words
