This is a fun bar for a more mature audience. The singer had a good voice and sang great old standards. He was engaging and fun with his audience and everyone was enjoying themselves. I would definitely recommend and would go back when in Edinburgh.

Can’t give this place less than 1/5, but seeing as they wouldn’t let a group of three of us in I can’t say any more

We wandered into the Rat Pack bar after a disappointing visit to the Dome. What a contrast! It was entertaining to watch the skilled barman make our cocktails, with such care and finesse! The cocktails were cheaper and so much better! The small bar had...More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
