One of the trendy crew's favourites for pre-club build-up
receive our info + offers for

Basement bar is one of the trendy crew's favourites for pre-club build-up and Sunday afternoon come down. If that doesn’t bother you, there’s a wide ranging, well-cooked menu (the nachos get full marks), interesting Czech beers and a pleasantly intimate atmosphere that’s been built up around a genuine bar culture. Its popularity can mean finding a seat can take over your evening, especially if you want to eat. We suggest popping in for a quick drink or two and marvelling at the true hideousness of the staff’s Hawaiian shirts. 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.
