The Bow Bar

80 W Bow, Edinburgh EH1 2HH, UK


On the historic curve of West Bow and Victoria Street, the Bow Bar remains delightfully traditional despite the many quirky, hipster-filled establishments that have popped up nearby. That’s not to say their choice of tipples is outdated, however. Somehow, this little nook fits in an astonishing 310 single malts, eight cask ales and six kegs. Keeping things local, they dispense beer from Scottish brewers Fyne Ales, Tempest, Cromarty and others, as well as hunting down bottles of Belgian duppel, German lager and good old, all-American beer. If you enjoy your pint with a pie, get down before 3pm, grab a wee wooden table and get your chops round one from Findlay’s of Portobello. During quieter hours, you may be left with only your thoughts for company, but what better time to appreciate this little treasure in all its glory.
