Where to Watch the Six Nations Rugby in Edinburgh
Much like the Fringe Fest, Edinburgh is a completely different city when the Six Nations is in town. Whether you're screaming out Swing Low, Sweet Chariot or well-up every time you hear the bagpipes play Flower Of Scotland, there are few better places than our city during the two months of the tournament. To make sure you don't miss a single tackle or try of this year's competition, we've pulled together a list of all the best bars and pubs to watch the Six Nations Rugby in Edinburgh.
Believe it or not, these guys know how to host a killer match day. With a resident oompah band on hand to play national anthems and plenty of space on long tables to settle in with a brew and a bite to eat, you'll have a hell of a time cheering your team on.
If you're looking for somewhere a little more low-key to catch all the action on the pitch, head to American-style pool bar, Marcos. Screening every match live, this place also offers unbeatable drinks and pool table deals for those nail-biting gamedays.
Coming alive on Murrayfield match days, Angels Share will be erecting two huge projector screens this season. Offering a relaxed setting and a menu full of contemporary Scottish dishes, this is the perfect place to hole up for the day with good friends (and even better beer).
Located beneath Edinburgh Castle, you couldn't get much more central than this Grassmarket spot. While the rooftop here is perfect for sunnier days, Cold Town House will be screening all the Six Nations action on the huge projector screen in their ground-floor bar. And for those half time munchies? There's a full menu of mouthwatering oven-baked pizzas.
Transforming from a traditional cosy pub into a boisterous live sports bar from February through to March, The Three Sisters can be easily identified by the huge inflatable rugby posts that flank its courtyard. Head here for the massive outdoor screen and you're guaranteed to catch every touch, try and tackle.
Located on George Street, Tigerlily is the perfect spot to catch the rugby action after a day of exploring Edinburgh's city centre. Serving up a sumptuous brunch menu along with whole lotta' cocktails, you'll be suitably fuelled to watch the live action on their huge screen.
