Concierge.com's insider take:
Long a focal point for traditional music in Edinburgh, this small, cozy pub is best known for the folk sessions that take place in the back room every night, on weekend afternoons, and at other irregular times. The sessions aren't a planned entertainment. There is no cover charge. It's just that Sandy Bell's has been a drop-in gathering place for musicians for decades. Anyone can join in or just listen from the bar with a pint of the local cask-conditioned ale, Deuchars IPA.
