Pretty sure you need one of the cards for the Tron, is it the Yellow Card or something? not been in there in years!!!

A yellow card will get you cheap drinks but on the monday at the crags, and the wed at the tron its a pound or 1.25 for most pints. And they show champs league football which can be a gd laugh

If your on an all nighter and want to carry on boozing after the clubs shut, pay a wee visit to the casino at fountain park, Drinking till 6am.

Then, if your not done yet. Head to the Scotsman Bar at the top of the cockburn street. It's a posties bar and opens at around 6am.

I may be bordering on alcoholic come to think of it:confused:

then after the posties bar hav a couple o hours sleep then repeat the whole performance if your realy hardcore :)

Scotsman Lounge isn't a posties' bar, you're thinking of the Penny Black (opens at 5 a.m.) The Scotsman was the bar for the printmen coming off the night shift from the Scotsman printing works when they were still based where the Scotsman hotel is now. Clue's in the name really :mrgreen:

I think on wednesday in the Tron its just a quid a pint, doesn't matter about the card i dont think, not been in a few weeks though.

If you have one of the cards then its 2 quid a pint, anytime which is good enough for me

That's a myth, I went a couple of years back during the festival after leaving Faith at 5am and the Penny Black was still shut at half 6 when i got my train back to Livingston! Snax next door opens around 6ish though so you can sit outside with a bacon roll if you like!

Interesting. Are you sure it wasn't a Sunday morning?

more info on Swedish bars please

Joseph Pearce's, Elm Row.

Victoria, Leith Walk

Boda, Leith Walk

Sofi's, Henderson Street, Leith

Run by Swedes. Staffed by Swedes (although not solely by Swedes).

Very nice, friendly, arty bars. The more pleasing on the eye female clientele drinks there......not bars for the screaming radge, the soft furnishings, candles and lack of tellys tends to put them off.

A good origami night is to be had in Sofi's, and the moose pizza is awfy gid.

Tak sa myket:).

other classics in Leith Boundry Bar [if its still there]Morrisons,further down into Leith Port o Leith,Slammers [opposite Police st]Bowlers Rest,Annfeild bar[Granton rd] real pubs

Ah, Mr. Bear, a man after my own heart. The Boundary Bar is now City Limits (not as good). Slammers is now a yuppy-fied bar called the compass- booooo! However, the Annfield is still there. Not on Granton Road mind, in Newhaven. I think the Bowler's Rest is still kicking about-literally.

Leith is Barry likes:).
