Bannermans Rock & Whisky Bar

Bannermans

Bannermans Rock & Whisky Bar

Marty DiBergi: Why don’t you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?

Nigel Tufnel:
[pause] These go to eleven.

Edinburgh’s self-styled “Rock & Whisky Bar”, Bannermans is all about the music. Tucked away in the old city vaults under George IV Bridge, it’s a suitably gothic (and soundproofed!) location. Attracting some big names for a smaller independent venue they host both free gigs from up and coming bands and ticketed events from more established acts – but given the dedicated band room you’re always free to just wander in and enjoy a pint at the bar or in their “Jagerlouge” at the back with its own dedicated bar.

There’s a pool table for afternoon entertainment, with the occasional informal tournament, and Sunday afternoons are dominated by a chilled acoustic session.

Very reasonably priced snacks and pub grub are available, alongside a bar offering some great cask ales (Fraoch Heather Ale is always on, Bannermans is one of the only pubs in Scotland featuring it on a permanent basis) and there is, as their slogan suggests, a respectable selection of both single malts and stateside whiskey-with-an-e.

If you’re a fan of film trivia, the script for Shallow Grave was conceived and drafted in Bannermans, and if you pop in and soak up the atmosphere you’ll soon understand why!

Those who are about to rock, we salute you.

The Raj Restaurant

square

Following a successful 30 years in Leith, The Raj has relocated to Blackhall, Edinburgh.  At The Raj you can expect extra ordinary tastes and flavours usually found in the palaces and high-homes of India and Bangladesh. The skilled chefs bring the cultures that have come together in Bombay — the Goans, Bengalis, Gujerafis, Mughals and Portuguese — for you now to relish in Edinburgh.

Raj has long been a thriving, cosmopolitan and multicultural city with its cuisine bringing together many different culinary influences in exotic harmony. Regional recipes were shared; new dishes were created; and gradually a unique cuisine emerged— which is now synonymous with India’s financial, entertainment and culinary capital.

Back in 1986, the Raj restaurant was created around the idea of bringing the cuisine of this great city to Edinburgh. Today, The Raj’s menus reflect this ongoing exploration featuring the freshest seafood, chicken, and lamb, as well as plenty to please vegetarian palates. Their menus feature a wide variety of cooking techniques, from slow cooked curries to grills and kebabs as well as tandooris from the clay oven.

Their wine list reflects a carefully considered selection of new and old world wines, specially chosen to complement their cuisine, with their sommelier on—hand to provide expert advice. If wine is not your thing, they have a wide range of Indian and artisan beers, whiskies and other exotic spirits, ensuring a perfect partnership for every guest’s palate.img_2767-e1469638664995 img_2768-e1469638717489
