Under the Stairs

3a Merchant Street Edinburgh EH1 2QD 0131 466 8550

We say

A bohemian venue that remains a bit of a lo-fi secret among students and chilled-out clubbers: the rough stone walls, low ceiling and retro furniture border on the nondescript, but wander down the stairs after dark and you'll find a place that thrives as a pre-club hang-out, with its own DJs and some worthwhile food that includes sharing platters served till 1am.

You say Average Rating ★★★★★

A great find! ★★★★★

We fell upon this bar by chance and what a gem! It is small but very comfortable, filled with mis-matching vintage furniture, very cool! The bar staff were very friendly and the bar had a nice relaxed vibe. Be careful of the cobbles outside after you have had a few drinks!!
