Pivo review Rate it

It's not so much a Czech bar as a Czech-themed bar, but Pivo has the look (and the beer) all the same. Two minutes from the east end of Princes Street, it's a popular late-night DJ bar among cheery, up-for-it crowds; if you want to savour a Staropramen in relative peace and quiet, go early in the evening.

Don't believe the promotional hype reviews by the owners. I will give you an honest review this is the worst pub in Edinburgh by far, some very unfriendly bar staff and all unfriendly clientele. Known to the locals as a dive. Czech themed in a stereotypical way with misspelled Czech murals. Highly attractive to foreigners who don't know any better unless you are Polish or part of some other ethnic clique you will be made to feel unwelcome. You will never see the same people in here twice this is what the bar lives on - a steady stream of foreign transients and unsuspecting tourists. It is nobody's local for a very good reason. Avoid at all costs.
