#216: The Outhouse, Broughton Street Lane, Edinburgh

The Outhouse, Broughton Street Lane, Edinburgh (exterior)

The Outhouse is down a back lane off Broughton Street, in what I presume was an old mews building. Inside it’s a fairly simple mixture of modern furniture, some exposed original stone walls, some splashes of colour, a host of unique artwork and a small horseshoe-ish bar.

The Outhouse, Broughton Street Lane, Edinburgh (exterior, patio, beer garden) Out the back through some large glass doors is the relatively large beer garden/patio. There’s room for a dozen or so picnic tables and plenty of standing room. It won’t get much in the way of sunshine because of the high surrounding buildings, maybe around noon in summer if they’re lucky.

The bar was quite quiet, an old but hip-looking couple, a few folk at the bar in their early thirties and plenty of empty seats. The beer garden was a different matter, full of a younger bunch in their 20s, and not many empty seats. Oh yeah, this was a Tuesday night around 7pm.

Nope.
