    Edinburgh Bars Serving Alcohol Before 11.00a.m.

    These seem to be a dying breed. Dianneís Pool Hall will be a particular miss for myself. The Edinburgh Tartan Army buses leave from there and it was always a pleasant way to start the day out, The Marksman and Dukes Head in Duke Street are notable exceptions. Even rarer on a Sunday. Suggestions welcome.

    ****! I remember Diannes. I played a gig there with the band shoehorned in behind a pool table!

    The Scotsman on Cockburn Street opens at 9. It used to be 6, I used it now and and then when I worked night shift. Porters at Piershill also opens at 9.

    Think both are 11 on Sundays though.

    Quite a few Wetherspoons seem to sell their stale beer to aging alcoholics from first thing in the morning.

    Diane's going is a disaster.

    We started our football night there every year. The kitty went a decent way towards a good bevvy and plenty pool before venturing elsewhere later.

    A decent place to go in mixed company pre Derby too.

    It had a dodgy reputation and wasn't to everyone's tastes but at least it was a bit different.

    I presume it's turning into another soul-less 10 a penny chain pub that won't let us in and is pish anyway?

    Fortnight ago there was some random full-on dancing by himself outside Straties around 6.30 in the morning, and he was wearing Real Madrid top and shorts.....

    Sure the Locarno Snooker on Slateford opens at 9 am seven days a week

    The Portobello Bar opens at some ungodly hour of the morning. Always seems to be in full swing when I walk past taking the kids to school on a Monday morning.

    Don't think it's been there for a good few years now - although it was always quite well-hidden

    A few disgraceful uni night outs finished in Penny Black's with a walk home at about 7.30am while folk were opening shops and heading to work. Bl00dy students.

    Pennyblack is now part of the Voodoo Rooms. You can hire the particular room/bar/dance floor that was the Pennyblack. We had a night out there on Thursday and it brought back some memories.
