An Old School Dive Bar

When I was in high school, I used to hang out at a joint called Einstein-a-Go-Go…or Einstein’s for short.  Now lest you think this was any old bar, let me just give you a little taste of the groups who played there while still touring in vans and staying in fleabag motels — Jane’s Addiction, Nirvana, They Might Be Giants, 10,000 Maniacs…you get the idea.  And by the look of me now, you wouldn’t think that I would go near a mosh pit…oh, but I have…and on more than one occasion.

Fast forward 25 years to Henry’s Cellar Bar in Edinburgh.

 

With a CBGBs vibe, this is a bar is loved by locals.  Like Einstein’s, it has a great pedigree of musicians that includes Tom Waits & Annie Lenox. With a bitchin’ indie music vibe and bartenders who pour mean cocktails, Henry’s is the place to be for live music nearly every night of the week!
