This bar/club was a surprise of fun and great times. They play great live music. Very lively with everyone dancing around. Their food is pretty good and fair priced. Will be returning.

Nice venue, free admission. Full of kids though who were acting like Muppets swinging into us spilling drinks etc. Band were 60's music which me and my partner can't stand however they were talented musicians.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
