Each monday the open mic @ Whistlebinkies attracts a number of different performers. While mostly folk cover singers, there are increasingly different types of artists.

Music styles on a monday are most diverse from indie to punk to folk.

A house guitar is available and everyone is friendly! The cost of alcohol is no more than you'd pay anywhere else in the old town and consequently you can be assured of no trouble.

whistle binkies is/was a favourite late night pub for a number of my friends. we would rather go there then many of the other club around that area. last week we headed up that way for a 'couple more' only to be told at the door that there was a 4 cover charge. i like WB but to pay 4 for an hour in a pub is a bit over the top. sorry we'll be going some where else next time.

My recent visit to Edinbugh was great and was going to try to have a drink at the Whistle, but the Q was to long and slow.
Never mind I'm back here in Rochester MN USA and have 2 Whistle Binkies to drink in. So come on over the pond for a great night out and maybe shop til'ya drop at the Mall of America. After all the $ is so weak now, so shop for Xmas!

Legendary live music venue with late night license , used to be full of artists,musicians and pissheads. ie interesting people.
recently expanded and has lost a wee bit of its seedy charm as a result and its now very expensive and the previous posters are correct about the knuckledraggers on the door and the crazy entry fee !

Can't believe i was charged £4 at 1.20am when the place shut's at 3am. Could you not half your pricing charge after a certain time? I live in Edinburgh & like the live bands but cmon eh!

Your door staff have attitude problems!

Good place for having drink with friends, chilling out and having a laugh. Good atmosphere, especially when band NERVOSA play, when pub is most lively.

As a regular, this pub has it all! Good music, nice staff, good selection of beer, late, not too trendy etc. It's 3am or 5am during the Festival. Beer a bit expensive though SCOTT. See my website for a ghostly history: igmoss.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk

Recently extended basement bar. Specialises in live music and always open very late (normally 3am, I think). You may need to queue and pay to get in later on in the night. Normally worth it if a late night pint is in order.
