A Traditional Scottish Pub at the Heart of Edinburgh's New Town

Welcome to the Thistle Street Bar, our traditional Scottish pub in the oldest street at the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town. Here you’ll find the best that Scotland has to offer, from our draught beers and lagers and extensive whisky and gin selection.   

Grab a drink and enjoy a bit of banter with the regulars and our friendly bar team; or just relax and soak up the atmosphere of a real Scottish pub where everyone is made to feel at home…even the dug!

The Thistle Takes Part in Negroni Week

The Thistle Street Bar is delighted to be taking part in international Negroni Week from Mon 12th to Sun 18th Sep. Choose from three expertly prepared Negroni cocktails – the original gin version (we use Lind & Lime for added zest), the Rum Negroni and The Boulevardier which replaces the gin with bourbon and was created in the 1920s at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris. So, whether you’re a gin, rum or bourbon fan you can enjoy the perfect Negroni at the Thistle. Saluti!
