Homage to childhood favourites at this Leith Walk bar, with grown-up drinks.
The Mousetrap is a dive bar with a difference, offering possibly the cheapest cocktails in Edinburgh alongside a good range of beers, including the butter variety, with simple cheese toasties and Haribo for soakage. As the name suggests, games are a big thing. Punters let their inner child run amok in the back room on retro arcade games, while the main space is a larger than life-size tribute to childhood classics. If the nostalgia doesn’t knock you out, live DJs and acoustic open mic nights will have you up past your bedtime.
