New Feature!



One of the best kept secrets of Edinburgh, Brass Monkey is a very cool place to enjoy a cocktail or a beer with friends. The floor of their intimate back room is entirely covered with cushions and mattresses allowing you to lounge beside one of the tiny tables provided for resting your beer while you enjoy a classic movie, or you could opt for the more traditional chairs of their front room and enjoy the eclectic monkey inspired art. The atmosphere is friendly, with smiling bar staff, and chatty patrons. Very popular with the hipster student crowd, Brass Monkey even has unisex toilets.
