Full description
Edinburgh’s nightlife is amazing, but you probably won’t know the best places to go unless you’re a local. On this 4.5-hour pub crawl, local guides will show you pubs tucked away down alleyways, thumping techno clubs guarded by burly bouncers, trendy cocktail lounges, and grungy clubs that showcase live music in abandoned underground vaults.

Professional party guides will show you Edinburgh’s best on this pub crawl, as you meet other travelers looking to party. See a side of Edinburgh you couldn’t find on your own. You’ll go to 5 cool places, and get cheap drink specials, so you can party like a rock-star, yet spend like a backpacker!

Departing nightly from The Globe Bar on Niddry Street, the tour includes 3 free shooters during the pub crawl, half-price pint specials, and free VIP entrance to a club at the end of the night. Naturally, you should also take advantage of a free dram of Scotland’s own special brew, with a complimentary glass of whiskey.

An international evening of fun

We headed to Edinburgh for a weekend and decided to do this tour on the Friday night to meet some new people and get an idea of the nightlife. We headed to the first location where we met a charming lad called (I can't spell his name!) Caleb. We had a brilliant group of people and it was an awesome night. A mixture of eclectic pubs and old churches converted into bars. We experienced unique locations, trendy bars and some traditional live music. We loved every minute. Thank you!

Nice evening which allowed us to see 5 bars Meeting at the block, cocktail at 2.5 pounds Then direction the pilgrim where all the furniture and decoration were recovered, this gives a very nice set, good food to snack on Then the revolution, bar where you can dance (but little room to sit) with good music and shots with original tastes Then the Irish pub mc sorleys where a band played live! Decoration and great atmosphere Finally the Frankenstein bar where you can also dance

Disappointing end to a great crawl.

The crawl in its self was great. We had good time for one beer in each pub which I think is enough. We managed 4 pubs which were all unique and definitely places I would go by my self when I return to Edinburgh. 3 of them had life Musik which always gives that little bit extra to the atmosphere. However the club in which we got dropped of wasn't really a club. It was way smaller then all the previous bars with terrible Musik. The guides were gone as soon as we all had our free shot and we didn't have the chance to ask if there is anything else near by. We left and went on the look out by ourselves and luckily got successful.
