O’Connors oozes charm and warmth thanks to owners Elaine and Christy O’Connor and their long and varied pedigree of owing and running bars in Edinburgh.

So we can assure you that you’ll be in a safe pair of hands with these two.

Based in the Canonmills area of the city, this local neighbourhood bar offers plenty of craic and a whisky selection to write home about.

It’s also very dog friendly and sports bar and we’re betting that you’ll love all the exposed brick wood combo – with patio doors that are flung open when the weather’s good enough.

There are also plenty of craft beers on tap to keep most people happy as Larry, and the red walls in what is a traditional warming interior make the place lovely and inviting when it isn’t patio door weather.
