Top 5 / Europe

Check out these under-the-radar bars in Edinburgh when you want to grab a drink but also avoid the hustle of tourists and traveling teens looking for a pint.



With a funky, almost industrial vibe and ping pong tables, 4042 can draw a younger, more energetic crowd, but if you’d prefer a quieter drink and bartenders who know their stuff, just head there on a weeknight or stick to the front room.



The second outpost of this restaurant and bar, which originally got its start in Glasgow, Lebowskis has an obvious theme, but it’s not kitschy or over the top. However, you will find an entire menu dedicated to White Russians.


Athletic Arms

Walk past it and you might think Athletic Arms is just another pub. However, walk inside and you’ll see it’s much more than that — it’s quintessentially pub. The joint should, after all, know its business by now. It’s been open since 1897.


Lucky Liquor

Small but atmospheric, Lucky Liquor serves beautifully crafted cocktails in an intimate space. Take advantage of the bring-your-own vinyl policy on Sundays and stick around so you can sample more than just one of the bar’s tasty options.



An Irish bar (yes, an Irish bar in Scotland), Malones attracts an older crowd of professionals and locals with hearty bar food, beer and live music. The crowd gets thicker as the night goes on, so plan your evening accordingly.
