Despite its ostensibly traditional exterior and unassuming decor, the Auld Hoose is not the run of the mill pub you might at first expect. For a start, it lays claim to the title of Edinburgh's only alternative pub with a juke box that covers punk, goth and metal music. It also hosts an impressive selection of malt whiskey and ales, and the bar staff is more than happy to chat about the merits of each with patrons. They also serve above-average food, including a plate of nachos that is the subject of many rave reviews. The end result is a friendly, laid back atmosphere with an impressive soundtrack which is bound to please any lover of independent music.

- Recommended as Best Nightlife Because: Fans of independent and alternative music will love The Auld Hoose.
- Recommended as Best of Edinburgh's South Side Bars Because: The truly alternative juke box and the warm atmosphere make the Auld Hoose a must for those with independent tastes.
