Bow Bar

80 West Bow Edinburgh EH1 2HH

An evocative, if not entirely original, representation of a venerable Edinburgh 'howf', or drinking house, this is a place to seek out real ales, good whisky and the hubbub of conversation. Its wood-panelled walls are lined by old mirrors advertising whiskies and beer, while blackboards list cask and guest ales, and patrons settle onto leather benches around small fixed wooden tables.
