#115. Three Sisters, 139 Cowgate, Edinburgh

Reputed to be the largest pub in Edinburgh, Three Sisters has a massive patio that alone is licensed to seat 1,000 patrons.

Coupled with the two indoor floors that each hold 1,000, you have room for 3,000 douchebags on any given Friday night while the uni is in session.

Primarily responsible for the rejuvenation of Cowgate as an entertainment destination, the Three Sisters must be applauded for running a very successful business. This pub could be amazing, but with nary a cask ale on tap (I had to settle for an extra cold Guinness), it seems to only care about the bottom line.

Rugby was on the telly, which strangely enough was the first time I had ever encountered that in an Edinburgh pub. Glasgow Warriors were playing, and "despite their heroics" lost to the team from Leinster (Dublin). There seems something particularly Scottish about the idea of losing heroically.
