Welcome to The Blind Poet, a cosy, literary pub in the Southside of Edinburgh. We attract a mixed bunch, students, locals and tourists alike. We're best known for the three B's - Beer, Banter and Bands. We feature live music several times a week, usually something rock/pop/country based, and also have a weekly open-mic night where anyone can get up and strut their stuff.
For those who like to stretch their brains a little there's usually a cryptic crossword on the go. We've also got a large set of C19th Encyclopædia Britannica which make for entertaining browsing!
