    It still seems a bit strange buying a pub that's traditionally a football fans watering hole and then turning away or at least discouraging fitba traffic.

My personal experience being an avid pub goer pre match over 40 plus years is that though fans can be a wee bit rowdy it rarely gets worse than that, I can honestly say I've never seen a fight in a pub full of fans, even ones with fans of both sides.

    From Hibs point of view if its getting harder or at least less inviting to frequent the boozers around the stadium on a matchday it opens the door for Hibs to push the likes of behind the goals more than they do. In fact we could do worse than build a big Wetherspoons style boozer in the east / FF corner that you can access on matchday so long as you have a ticket for the game, coz at the moment its just a wasted space.
    With a corner stand above the place.

    That's fair enough, but from experience of being on the other side of the bar, it's not always the nicest.

    Agree with Hibs doing something else at the stadium.

    Because itíll still be empty on the night

    Yeah, and the previous chat was all about it never selling out, so it means folk have had to move on to some other form of attack

    Given the number of tickets sold to walk ups, it's quite clear that it'll be at least 75% full, which would be pretty fair with it being an evening game in winter, i.e. a few folk not wanting to take their kids.

    Hibs offering £17.50 per sold back ticket, my grandsons seasons only cost £50 each, honestly think Hibs are offering too much back for a kids returned ticket.

    I read it as its only adults that can be sold this way

    I hope enjoy watching thousands of pounds walk past their front door every other week.

    This is what Leith is becoming.

    Nauticus is like that - it was The Cavern on Duke Street; they don't open until 2 in the afternoon, they might as well nail a sign on the door saying "football not welcome here".

    The Brass Monkey on Leith walk are so militant about football colours its no wonder you can get a seat with ease on a match day. It's a shame as it's a big pub and they could do a roaring trade on match days if they encouraged football fans more.
    The Cavern was never on Duke St , drank in it for many a year and it was in Bernard St back then

    Any chat Iíve ever seen is about it being empty, whether that be through unsold or non attendees. Regardless if itís a midweek game against hearts or a weekend game against Livi, the place will have a multitude of empty seats. Itís interesting but Iíd genuinely wager a bet there are many tickets completely unused throughout the season.

    Well, I've put one up for resale, so let's see what happens.

    There was something on twitter after the Cove game about them knocking back anyone wearing football colours. Craft beer place now. Place will struggle with that attitude.

    It says only adult tickets can be purchased, little ambiguous but I reckon you can only sell and buy an adult value ticket.

    I've put one of the kids tickets back on the exchange.

    Seems to have been bought, but no idea if I'll get the credit for it.

    I always look forward to sellouts and asking some random to vacate my seat!🤣🤣🤣

    It's actually a very nice bar in its own right. It's definitely not a football or sport bar, but then those type of pubs have been closing on ER for years so there clearly isn't enough demand for them.

    Correct. Nauticus used to be the parlour. It was the golf tavern for many years before that.

    I'd like to think that football fans looking for a traditional boozer near their spiritual home ground so they can get loaded on lager and spirits pre match to build up to the occasion of a proverbial 6 pointer against city rivals far outweighs the people that want to sit and sip on craft beers with names like pig and lettuce with a hint of almond pale ale and talk about cricket and water polo... What do I know though.

    What was the pub on duke street before it was nauticus? I think Iím going nuts, I could have sworn it was called the cavern before it shut and became Nauticus - or Notforus.

    It's almost as if some business owners have decided it's easier to forgo the income for an easier life for their staff, football fans aren't always the best of customers. Saying this as someone who worked in bars for 15 years, including 5 in The Albion.
    Iíve worked in bars too and had my fair share of hassle to deal with. Itís more about the change in pubs that have never been anything other than Hibs pubs closing their doors to and actually discouraging football fans from being customers.
    "...when Hibs won the Scottish Cup final and that celebration, Sunshine on Leith? I donít think thereís a better football celebration ever in the game.Ē

    I get the feeling that the ďfootball pubsĒ can tend to struggle on non-match days, therefore theyíre making a decision to try to be profitable 13 days a fortnight rather than one.

    Pretty depressing sign of the times nonetheless.

    Are the pink seats the seats that season ticket holders have handed in for resale?? The dot count is now shoeing up pink seats.

    So it sounds like a sell out. Must be the first for a long while - probably since 1-3 Hearts. Really looking forward to the atmosphere and hope we get a good game and singsong.

    Players should really be upping their game against Livingston to get in the team.
