Hard Rock Cafe

Rock-themed memorabilia all over the walls and rock videos thumping out of the sound system but then you already knew that since the Hard Rock Cafe is something of a global concept. This one's got one of Rod Stewart's shirts hanging up, amongst other popular music curios.Try a big tasty burger or if you just fancy a drink the bar serves great cocktails. It's also a good place to take children, there's plenty to look at, a lively atmosphere and they have personalized the menu.

The Carwash

The funky purple exterior is a statement of this bar's fun-loving intent. It appears slightly out of step next to the nearby Scottish Parliament at the Assembly Halls. On entering, the place screams 1970s retro. Enter the groove of a Blaxploitation soundtrack surrounded by lava lamps, lurid red, green and violet walls, and kitsch curios. There are DJs from Thursday to Sunday and a cocktail happy hour between 4p and 8p all week long. Munch on nachos and spicy salads washed down with a pitcher of your favorite tipple. Bring your kinky afro wig and dig the scene.

Café Royal Oyster Bar

This Victorian Café Royal Oyster Bar oozes elegance with its ornate decoration to the wonderful Oyster Bar in an adjoining room. Glide through the revolving doors, over marble flooring and into a period-piece setting. The food is as exquisite as the decoration, alongside the revered oysters on crushed ice are sumptuous dishes like roasted sea bass and sizzling steaks. A visit to this establishment is a memorable event.

The Liquid Room

The Liquid Room is located in the dark depths of Victoria Street, purveyor of all things dance and the occasional indie and rock act. As a live music venue, it sifts out the ropier local bands and offers up the only the best. From The Black Eyed Peas, Feeder, Vampire Weekend, and Sleigh Bells to Franz Ferdinand, Coolio, Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs and Snow Patrol, the club has played host to some of the top musical maestros. Local talents also pop up from time to time, and it is a pleasantly-intimate venue for a gig. As a nightclub, it flirts with a housey image while remaining mostly mainstream.

The Bongo Club

This multi-faceted arts center and clubbing space has a great vibe, a vibrant decor and a relaxing atmosphere. Dance to the eclectic beats and driving bass of the music played; clubs include Mumbo Jumbo (fusion of classics to electro), X-plicit(Scottish D&B), Ceilidh (Scottish live acts) and Messenger Sound System (roots and dub reggae). The Bongo also has live acts, theater, salsa dancing events and classical music nights.

The Outhouse

This is an archetypal bar in the Broughton Street area, relaxing, laid back and predominantly but not exclusively gay. Shoot some pool or if there is the merest hint of the sun, head for the open air courtyard with boule court. Spice up your visit with a pitcher of Mai Tai or one of the other cocktails. The Outhouse plays host to the occasional pre-club and literary event too. This modern and welcoming place has been included in GQ magazine's top fifty bars in Britain.
