#309. The WestRoom, 3 Melville Pl, Edinburgh
After the disappointment of the Raconteur being closed, I walked west to Queensferry Road and crossed the Dean Bridge. The view from the bridge is stunning, but I have to say the skyline would look nicer if (a) the sun ever came out, and (b) the buildings were painted in vibrant and dynamic colours a la Prague.
I ended up at this stylish bar, where I drank an always satisfying Caledonian80/-. The WestRoom features the biggest lampshades (of any bar in the world?), part of its modern decor.
