Easygoing hangout with simple food and a back room with floor mattresses and afternoon movies.
Brass Monkey has brought its relaxed beer supping, movie watching surroundings to Leith.

Look at this as a step in the evolution of The Brass Monkey, it's not a carbon, chain-like copy, but something with the same ideals. A good quality bar with a traditional feel and a modern twist.

Home to a cushioned cinema room, selection of board games, dartboard and arcade machine, there’s plenty to do besides drink at The Brass Monkey. However the drinks alone, which are cheaper than usual and come with a student discount, keep the bar busy. Lively students take to the daily 3pm cinema screenings; popular for the surround sound and BYO film policy, whilst the remaining nooks and crannies fill up with chatty locals come evening. The offering fulfills basic pub expectations in terms of the usual spirits, wines, bottled ciders and draught beers but their previous lunch deal has recently been replaced by some basic pre-made toasties which even the bar staff couldn’t recommend.

Any bus that goes down Leith Walk stops on the doorstep! Literally. Get off at Pilrig St Church, just after Pilrig St and when you step off the bus, BOOM, you're at the front door!
