Edinburgh's second BrewDog brings more good beer, good food and good vibes.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The latest in the BrewDog team's quest to bring decent beer to the masses, this Lothian Road bar's industrial style is a far cry from the bank building it used to be. BrewDog’s trademark focus on quality and attention to the little details is evident, from the beer itself to the food and knowledgeable service. With 20 taps there is an interesting, ever-changing variety of beer to sample, featuring well-chosen guests from around the world as well as their own brews – enthusiastic staff and a handy map guide drinkers between easy drinking and crazy, traditional and contemporary, so there’s help at hand in making a selection. The food aims to complement the brews, focusing on wings, buffalo cauliflower and (of course) burgers. The latter are well-filled and well-cooked, be they beef brisket, juicy fried chicken or seitan for veggies and vegans.

Best new bars in Edinburgh

Our favourite watering holes that have popped up in the capital
