#239. Balmoral Bar, 1 Princes Street, Edinburgh

We found the place where Edinburgh's high society stop for a drink while shopping along Princes. At the foot of North Bridge, nestled next to the Waverley train station, the Balmoral Hotel is a beautiful feature of the Edinburgh skyline, and the place where J. K. Rowling stayed the day she finished the last installment of Harry Potter. (You can now book a room in the Rowling Suite... for £1000/night.)

The Balmoral also includes this swank place to grab perhaps the best pint of Scottish cask ale you will ever be served: a Belhaven St. Andrew's Ale.
