Three Sisters Bar (Edinburgh)
Advantages: Friendly, great food, good drink, great atmosphere.
Disadvantages: Cobbled courtyard, easy to trip.
I have literally just got back from this bar about ten minutes ago, I love this pub. It happens to be one of the best in the centre of Edinburgh. It is located along the Cowgate which is just off the grassmarket. The atmosphere for a pub is brilliant, the three sisters is a well acclaimed sports bar within Edinburgh and it is great for the whole student experience as drinks and food are cheap with an SR Card which is available to all students in Edinburgh. The drinks are reasonably priced and for a capital city this is rare. The food is lovely and tonight they even had a carvery placed outside which when we arrived was very busy, also they have a bar outside as the inside bar gets very busy and very hectic, the outside area is a courtyard and they have large tables with large umbrellas for the when the weather is a bit rainy, like tonight, but the area was still very busy. They also have a function room which has been turned into a university union for napier university which I think is a brilliant idea as this is the university that I attended. The bar staff are really welcoming and friendly and they are always on hand to help with any problems or queries you might have. The three sisters have different events such as a pub quiz, where you can win yourself money, which is always a bonus, on top of the fun you will have. The bar is also connected to a hotel which is also run by the same management and it looks very attractive from the outside, if it is anything like the bar it will be as good inside also. The decor is very fashionable but very laid back, so there is no judgement if you dont feel like being glammed up to the nines. The bouncers are also very friendly and do their job well, I have never had any problems at this bar. The food was still being served as we left at about 12, so they are always serving until closing time if you are peckish after your late night jaunts, definitely worth a visit if you are in Edinburgh for the weekend or you live here. The atmosphere especially at big sporting events such as the six nations and the fifa world cup is amazing, the bar does its best to kit itself out and cater to every country included and this makes the pub very welcoming and a good place to mingle with other supporters and meet new people. So yeah this bar is always being mentioned between people in Edinburgh and I would definitely recommend a visit. It is open all day until 1am, so go on, you know you want too!
Summary: Great pub in the centre of edinburgh with great food and a good atmosphere.
