What’s On @ Star Bar

Star Bar frequently hosts live music, comedy and other special events. Watch this space for any upcoming goings-on.

At Star Bar we’re many things, but one thing we’re definitely not is boring! 

We’re one of the only pubs in Edinburgh keeping the juke box alive, well stocked with classic favourites from Led Zeppelin to the Pointer Sisters and very popular with our customers. Fancy being a DJ for the night? Go ahead, we won’t judge your song choice.  Still only 10p a pop.

We’re also the home of probably the best foosball table in Edinburgh. Come and enjoy a game and a drink with us.


If none of that takes your fancy, Star Bar is one of Edinburgh’s only boardgame bars so if you’re in the mood for something competitive we offer plenty of games at the bar – just ask our friendly staff.

We also have movie nights on Mondays from 8pm on 4K 48” TV and Big Screen HD projector with surround sound.
