Welcome to The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh's original craft beer bar.

We offer more than twenty draught beers & ales on tap and over a hundred

local & international bottled beers.  

Our spirit selection, fluid in its ever-changing nature, showcases local artisanal and independent distilleries, including a unique mixture of gins, whisky, bourbons, mezcals and liqueurs - all handpicked to satisfy our curious human nature, as well as provide comfort in what we know and love. Our wine selection is unique and dynamic, allowing a fresh, new experience upon every visit whilst keeping known favourites always available.


The Hanging Bat’s kitchen pours their heart and soul into a small, unique and diverse menu, made from scratch, in-house - starring Fish and Chips, home-made beef stew, our famous Hanging Bat nachos – with haggis as a topping if you so please, and our award-winning Chilli Con Carne, catering to people from all walks of life, with vegetarian and vegan options available, assuring there is something for everyone.
