The globe used to be pretty cheap, not been in for a while though but might be worth a try.

Why did bar salsa lose its license :confused:

Aii I've been to the Globe before Guiness was about 4 for a pint which is the same as 3 sisters which is a farse, im sure the larger wasn't too cheap either.

My mate was sayin they have a sign up sayin its closed for 4 months or so, their liscense hasn't been lost but its been suspended by the police because of the amount of trouble they've had to deal with, think it was something like 40 odd callouts in the past couple of weeks or months

:agree: Globe is still quite reasonable.

Also, Standing Order on George St if cheapness is essential.

Not sure about Guinness but Carlsberg is 2.25 a pint in Globe, there's big posters behind the bar with the prices anyway.

Aye, too much bother in and around Salsa recently, the mass brawl after the Derby amongst other instances.

The biggest ****hole in the town otherwise known as Andersons on Lothian Road is dirt cheap, I honestly wouldn't bother unless you feel depressed 'cos after looking around for 2 mins you'll realise life could be much worse!

I'm shocked it's taken so long. I was drinking in Bar Salsa every weekend when i was 15, the place seemed to have a bit of an open door policy. A few cracking nights in there though so not going to knock it.

For cheapness Standing Order is always a shout, the place has less atmosphere than the moon though.

The globe is 2.95 a tennents and 2quid a vodka and dash. It has the same owners as bar salsa according to the paper. Bar salsa was great for a cheap bevvy. :grr:

I think the grapes is on a par with Andersons from what I hear and not much different from the 1/4 gill (it's previous name) but could be wrong. It's 2.85 a tennents in the tron.

One of the biggest talking points when you go up town now is how ****ing expensive it is. Get to your local miners club. 1.50 a voddie. :greengrin

I'd steer well clear of there to be honest, since the demise of the Wine Glass and the Junction Bar most of the less reputable drinkers round that way have found their way there.

What do people class as a cheap pint these days in town?

I find the norm is around 3.50 for a lager and I drink all over the place...anything more than 4 and I start to get a bit annoyed but saying that most places you know the prices and if you want a cheap night go to the cheap bars.

The Outhouse isn't too expensive, round about 3.20 for a pint or Star Bar in the new town.

Or just go to any other Wotherspoon pubs with the jake balls...

Proper cheap is c.2 a pint - now confined to few places, and even fewer decent places.

Town cheap is, now sadly, c.3 a pint. Any place you can get a pint for 2.60 - 2.95 is very good, Lord Bodo's being a good example.

The Thistle Street Bar reflects typical town prices, about 3.60 for Kirin or Red Stripe and 4.20 odds for Peroni.

Speaking of which, I think I paid 5 for a pint of Peroni at Hotel Missoni not that long ago :rolleyes:

As a near shareholder in the place, I could have a word with the manager to give it a coat of paint :greengrin

Also owned by the same lads who've got The Globe, Binkies, Salsa, Royal Mile Tavern and the old Faith (now Sin).

I gave them a fair earful about the colour of the VAT when I was working there during it's minor refurb. Think they were limited to certain colours though.

Sin still offers 2 quid a dring for everything (same deals as Salsa but doesn't open til 10pm.

And tell Wayne he's a knob Gramo :greengrin

I believe Andersons is owned by the same people too!

Not a question about Pubs as such but does anyone know if City is a student night on a Saturday or just normal?

My local is 2.85 for a pint of lager. I think 3 is getting a bit much to be honest but it's only a matter of time.

Had a nice pint of Carlsberg (or was it Fosters?) for 2.35 at the Southsider. Lovely it was. :agree:

2.58 for a pint of Guiness at my work Paul, I've tried countless time to get you lot to come :greengrin
2.47 for a lager and 2.17 for a pint of Best aswell
Only thing is that it's a Bowling club so not quite a night out atmosphere and not in town.

I can't wait to get back to Edinburgh for some cheap booze. I'm over in oz at the moment and booze is ridiculous. A cheap 'schooner' (about 380ml I think) will cost about 4 quid :grr:
