The Three Sisters

Colloquially called The Six Tits (cause it’s always fun to lower everything to the commonest dominator isn’t it?) The Three Sisters is the epicentre of Edinburgh’s drinking/smoking/fighting scene. Crammed full of impressionable students, you get the impression it's specifically designed to freak out claustrophobes, with the single main entrance bottle-necking as soon as two or more people try and use it. Throw in a couple of lads beating hell out of each other and you’ve got an atmosphere as relaxed as the front row at an S Club 7 gig. The surly bouncers simply make sure this strenuous drinking experience is turned into a marathon test of mental strength. Click here to buy Itchy Edinburgh, the UK's best-selling pocket-sized guide to what's on in Edinburgh, including restaurants, clubs, bars, hotels and shopping.
