Try your hand at Pacman, pinball, darts and other pub games
Ping-pong, Pacman and pool, table football, and even a whole room of retro arcade machines: order a side of fun with your burger and beer at these bars where it's playtime every time. Fancy a shot?
One of the few pubs in the city big enough for ping-pong (aka wiff-waff) tables. There's plenty of decent food, beer and cocktails to keep you going between games too.
Beer & Skittles
Life isn't all beer and skittles, but there's plenty of space around the pool table in this central bar – the skittles are in the vodka though.
This splashy makeover of an old Bruntsfield hotel boasts a stylish bar, generous terrace and clutch of ping-pong tables that double as laptop spaces during the day.
The City Café
For generations, all of Edinburgh's best drinking tales have started with 'So we went to the City Caff for a game of pool and …' Perfect for diner-style burgers and pre-club drinks.
The Lucky Liquor Co
One of the city centre's plushest cocktail bars also happens to be hiding a pool table in the basement.
On bustling Leith Walk the Mousetrap's USP is a trio of pinball machines, a SNES console – and cheap cocktails.
