Original Brass Monkey (Edinburgh)




“This Brass Monkey on Drummond Street is the proper original Brass Monkey, complete with weird room through the back and great tunes all day long. One of Edinburgh’s very best pubs for sitting in all day and getting rat-arsed”…..

One of the best bars in Edinburgh and a local secret, Brass Monkey offers all manner of delights. From Havana and Coke for little more that £2.50, monkey art, iconic posters and an intimate back room – what more could you want? A room made of pillows, you say? Weeell…

Brass Monkey interior

The larger back room is a mound of mattresses and cushions with little tables that you can rest your pint perfectly in (not on) from your lying-down (or at least lounging) position. There are movies on the big screen everyday at 3pm too, for those lucky people who don’t have to work for a living (*cough*, students), alongside a varying selection at the weekend. There’s also soups and sandwiches on offer, with yummy muffins if you get the munchies too. All in all, it’s a gem of a place, great for a slow afternoon pint or a fun gathering before a night out. Please don’t tell too many folk, though; we don’t want everyone to know.
