#239: Belushi’s, Market Street, Edinburgh

Belushi's, Market Street, Edinburgh (exterior)

Belushi’s is a sports bar attached to a hostel, one of over a dozen following the same formula and branding across Europe, mostly the UK though. It’s quite modern, if a touch tired-looking, but nice and bright, with big windows, several TVs and a big screen for big games. It used to be a bit bigger, but they sacrificed a portion to make way for Jake’s Place at some point last year.

Busier than average for a Tuesday night, possibly due to a captive hostel audience. Most of the punters were quite young, in their early twenties or so. Strangely though, the soundtrack was all 90s hits like the Cranberries, Blues Brothers (or is that 80s?), and “What Is Love (Baby Don’t Hurt Me)” which now just reminds me of A Night At The Roxbury Saturday Night Live skit.
