It was Friday around 8.30 PM when I visited the first time (April 2006) and about 9 PM when I visited again in October 2006. LOVED it. Music: 4/5, DJ: 5/5, Representation of Edinburgh life: 5/5, Running into former train-driving colleague last seen on GNER in England in Bar 38 (Gaz from Leeds): PRICELESS!

We've just popped in for a bar meal. The food was excellent.

However, it took ages coming and it was not what I ordered! The waitress with the blond(ish) curly hair was the most grumpiest, worst waitress I can recall ever having the misfortune of being served by. She was apalling.

Also very limited beer selection unless you like lager.

Popped in here yesterday(12 Sep 06) to meet friend for something to eat. we got turned away for having a baby(sleeping in pram) with us.
Now i would understand, if it was 6pm on a firday night. but 4pm on a tuesday, the place was dead. There was more staff that clients in the place. One guy having a pint and reading a newspaper and a couple of people with luggage sitting by the windows.
This place maybe busy on a fri/sat night. but im not surprised its DEAD through the week.
Not a family friendly place.

Pleasant enough staff but the time taken between placing an order and getting it on the table is positively crazy. I don't know if there is a Bermuda Triangle effect but I don't think anywhere else in town takes this long.

the place was quiet, very quiet I waited and waited and waited some more and no one was behind the bar, where had all the staff gone? eventually one did pop up form somewhere only to turn around again to put glasses away. Bar 38 are you scared of customers or are your staff on the can't be bothered mode?

At 8pm the music is turned up WAT too high. even the staff agreed, it seemed pointless as the place was still quiet - and most people were there for a chat. Of course the reason is so that you drink more - we did, but elsewhere

Bar 38 is a favourite pub of the Scottish Lads, its always busy from late afternoons with people after work or shoppers. Its open until 1pm and its right at the west end of george street.

Great Staff (new in take) Good Service Pricey (but City Centre & Good Table Service) Absolutely jumping on a Friday night... Dodgy DJ visits occasionally Good Drinks Promotions Food can be good (depends who's on)

This is another style bar in the city centre. It is worth visiting once just to check out the toilets though!
