Serving international street food from noon every day, and Mexican street food until midnight, is The Street. It is a quirky bar in the city centre, situated near a broad range of hotels, shops, a cinema and the Edinburgh Playhouse. With two outside seating areas, The Street is a fantastic place to grab a coffee and a snack or lunch and a glass of wine during the day. The fun and sociable atmosphere also makes this the perfect place to gather with friends in the evening. Try the likes of succulent chicken and chorizo skewers, lamb koftas, burgers and Posh Dogs.
Offering a range of beer, wine, spirits and cocktails, and boasting a regular events calendar, this bar has become a real landmark for Edinburgh’s social scene. Every Wednesday, Ryan Matthewson hosts a game show night called Prize Surprize, which is packed with comedy, cabaret and hilarious games. Every Friday and Saturday night, The Street’s basement transforms into a buzzing nightclub and attracts a livelier crowd. The nightclub is open until 3am and is accessed from Broughton Street after 1am. On a Friday night, resident DJ Trendy Wendy hosts The Wendy House, and the Saturday line-up features some of Scotland’s most popular DJs. On Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, cocktails are only £5 each.
