Busy bar on the Grassmarket with plenty of history.

Tends to be fairly busy at most times, but you can still get a good pint.

This pub is located in Haymarket, where right outside the used to hang people back in the day. The name is apparently a reference to the last hanging in Edinburgh. The bar is cosy and modern inside, but they have some macabre elements like a framed noose on the wall. They have lots of scotch ales and also pour some strong mixed drinks. They claim to be haunted by a little girl in medieval clothes, but I did not see her.

You might not have wanted to visit The Last Drop back in the day when Edinburgh hung criminals, but nowadays not only is it safe to grab a drink here, but it’s fun to learn about the history. The atmosphere is that of a traditional Scottish bar. They also have tasty bar foods and drinks that will send you for a loop.

Great pub but can get too touristy. Good is generic pub stuff but there are a few good cask ales

The last drop is named after the last hanging that took place in the grassmarket area in Edinburgh. They say it is haunted by a little girl dressed in Midevil clothing. This area has a rich history for sure and this old style English pub aims to deliver. With one of the best line up of ales I've seen while there it is for sure a place to get a proper pint of ale! Take a look a the menu too because it is all good and the fish and chips are perfectly done! You can't miss the place with the noose hanging out front and its funny saying on its chalk board sign out front.
