The Bailie

The Bailie Bar

A traditional old friend, full of character, warm and inviting – like your local should be.

A Stockbridge Institution, the Bailie Bar is a cosy, traditional basement bar and long-established Gastro Pub nestled into the heart of Edinburgh’s bohemian and trendy enclave between the water of Leith, Edinburgh New Town, Inverleith and the Dean Village. Situated on the corner of St Stephens Street, this warm and welcoming public house has been playing host to locals, regulars, visitors and new comers come rain or shine, 364 days of the year for over two decades. Never straying far from its grass roots philosophy ‘like your local should be’, The Bailie is a perfect marriage of delicious food and drink served in a quintessentially local way. It is fair to say, there are few basement bars with the enviable reputation and subtle atmospheric charms of the Bailie with its open fire, scheduled live music, live screened sports and delectable traditional Scottish Food. Couple this with the engaging repartee of our friendly landlord, wide selection of draft taps, rotating cask ales, malt whiskies, wines, premium spirits and a range of teas, coffees and soft drinks available, there is perhaps no better place to hang you hat, pull up a pew, and enjoy a drink and some food in The Bailie Bar, Stockbridge.

Usquabae whisky bar

Usquabae

Usquabae whisky bar

Wi’ tippenny, we fear nae evil;
Wi’ usquabae, we’ll face the devil!

Usquabae (“oosk-a-bay”) is a whisky lover’s paradise – the name comes from a Rabbie Burns coined variant on the Gaelic for “water of life” and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. The back of the bar is lined with whisky (and whiskey), there’s alcoves lined by whisky filled cabinets, the very Scottish menu contains a fair old dose of single malt, and even the decor is built, in part, from old whisky barrels. The atmosphere alone is intoxicating.

The classic malts you’d expect from any self-respecting Scottish pub are there of course, and much more besides. Rare editions, unusual expressions, a few bottles which are all that remain of long lost distilleries and one of the finest collections of Japanese malts you’ll find this side of 余市町.

Of course, if a dram isn’t your thing there’s plenty more on offer, including a wide selection of craft beers and an impressive cocktail menu.

Possibly the most impressive thing is the knowledge of the staff on their huge range of spirit – the manager is one of the leading Scottish whisky bloggers, and the “trickle-down effect” is very evident.
