Edinburgh Fringe Venue
About the venue
The Waverley Bar is located off the High Street, where it turns into the Canongate. As the name of the bar suggests it is a minute's walk from Waverley Station.
Established since the Fifties as a prominent venue for rising stars in the folk world (vintage poster and photos of banjo-playing Billy Connolly and the Humblebums adorn the wall), with an ambience that seems to have little changed since the 1920s, this quiet, old man's curio is a place where you feel like you are slipping back in time.
The Guid Crack Club meet here once a month to spin yarns (all welcome).
Pub food and good choice of beers and whiskies.
