About

A trendy and popular mixed bar with friendly staff. By day the glass front makes it an ideal place to relax with a coffee and people watch, whilst at night it attracts a livelier crowd with a buzzing atmosphere.

The Street is a venue over two floors, for eating, drinking and dancing with outdoor heated smoking areas on both levels. We are open until 1am daily. Full menu is served until 9pm and snacks are available until midnight Sunday to Thursday. We serve a premium selection of beers, wines and spirits, plus an extensive cocktail list with special offers on all day every day!

Used to love this place but was recently refused entry because half my group didn't look 'gay enough' we were out with a few straight friends....are we supposed to ditch them?! So much for being inclusive!

I’ve frequented this bar over many years, music was always great and always had a great night l, but I witnessed a female bouncer on Saturday evening use awful language to a group of girls wanting to get into the bar. This female bouncer with glasses was a power trip and called the girls stupid then proceeded to mock and make fun of them. For this reason I will not be going back as I was disgusted with this behaviour. This person needs to sacked ASAP before she ruins The Street. No need for this behaviour at all… management get it sorted

This was a decent bar at one point. Not anymore. After a certain time they start to openly discriminate, if your face does not fit they stop serving you for any obscure reason they can come up with. This has sadly become a place to avoid if you don’t fit their profiling policy you will be treated in a negative manner. This is what they want Edinburgh to be a lovely safe shortbread tin for tourists to spend their money.

Been to The Street so many times, including multiple Hogmanays with my partner. After heading to the Street and realising it was closed, decided to head to the nightclub round the corner (not realising this was an extension of the bar) was asked by the doorman ‘do you even know what this is’ my reply was ‘what do you mean’ to which I received ‘no thank you’What answer do you actually expect from that question? Literally what does it mean?? I do understand the safeguarding but genuinely what do you expect peoples answers to be to that question? Absolutely ridiculous. Bouncer is a Grade A helmet.

Awful bar service and very pretentious and prejudice atmosphere . Will avoid at all costs . Definitely not a gay friendly environment. Shameful establishment

DJ Wendy House is amazing, but when they replaced her with the useless ginger / blonde DJ on Saturday night on 7th May 2022, the place became an absolute dive.Stick to the best, and not the rubbish useless folk that don’t know what they’re doing.

Asked for a Long Island Iced Tea and got something that just wasn’t it. If the staff are unsure how to make a cocktail just be honest and say. For some reason they put orange juice in it and the drink just looked like muddy water :-(On top of that, they then had someone cleaning the fish tank on the bar… really… could that not be done when the venue is closed?

Unfriendliest place in Edinburgh although preaching equality... Staff are miserable and customer service non existent.

Always a nice place to go for a drink; the staff are brilliant, and their evening entertainment is great fun, especially Glamoor Kweer Kabaret; the drag show that ran before COVID-19 arrived.

Wonderful place, had a server called Jay who is an absolute credit to the place. Lovely, polite and never let my drink go empty - whatever they're paid it's not enough. 100% would go again.

Went in yesterday lunchtime for a drink and talked to lady manageress who was lovely. Waiter with dark hair and glasses took our details and said he would reserve a table for 8 pm downstairs. We arrived back on time and the young waiter said he had no booking for us . We had given our seats up in another bar and had to line up again to get back in. Very poor service. Drinks expensive.Will not go back.

Great gay/LGBTQ friendly bar, with a dance space downstairs. The drinks are also great value - this might have changed but last time I was there they did a wicked £4 long island ice tea. Highly reccomended all round

The street have nailed it! Felt very safe in the bar. The staff were so attentive. Still a fun and friendly atmosphere. The staff member Brooke even gave us some gorgeous sun flowers to make us smile when we left. Will definitely be back.

Spontaneous visit to my favourite spot of the pink triangle tonight and surprisingly busy for a Monday. Some revellers still partying from pride weekend...

Apparantly this is a gay bar?! I've been here twice prior to GHQ and it just seemed a normal, friendly bar. The unique think about The Street is that it's...
