With brief description. Not done my homework. Not too touristy. Lovely city by the way.
is a nice dog-friendly real ale pub that's also a gay bar. all the best things.
Teuchtars (little bit touristy)
Thistle Street Bar
Theres literally thousands. Avoid the royal mile.
basically a sort of...err, labyrinth-like pub that's part of the old Edinburgh undergroundy-type-vaults.
Lebowskis - pretty much serves nothing but different variations of White Russians. Very tasty if you like that sort of thing.
Also where the holy triumverate of me foley and ICWAR hung out. Forgot about Lebowskis.
same with Jekyll & Hyde's. I always feel robbed spending £7 or whatever it is on a pitcher when 80% of the pitcher is fucking ice.
Frankenstein's and/or Jekyll & Hyde's are worth seeing as they're dark, atmospheric and have weird stuff decorating the pubs (Jekyll & Hyde's has all sorts of ye olde medicine-themed stuff, weird things in jars etc and the toilets are hidden behind a bookcase - this is really fun when you're very drunk and not sure where the hell you're going).
