I am one of those guys who places the ambience of a pub just as high as any other aspect of the experience. Hanging Bat is a good example. Ambience is terrific, in an American pub sort of way. Add to that outstanding service on a busy Friday evening, a good beer selection, and a friendly crowd, and it becomes a top stop in Edinburgh. As good as it gets.

Very trendy and hip bar, pretty vibrant on a friday early night. Brick industrial interior, check. Some local cask beers combined with plenty of beers on keg. The latter were dominated by Brew By Numbers stuff, probably due to an earlier tap tale over? Felt a bit one dimensional anyway. Good bottle selection as well. Had some food on sunday which was very nice.

Looks like a lot of modern Craft beer pubs. Not too big but plenty of space and seating. Some 20 kegs and casks, nice Gin selection. There’s a 50l homebrewing system in the pub as well for some who like playing. Selection is quite nice, beer well kept and tap takeovers take place often I’d say. Was there for Stone takeover and 2 other nights, never did it seem too crowded. Staff is nice and friendly enough and pretty quick. Food is not so great, portions are not that big and it’s not that tasty... I’ll skip food next time. Overall a very good place I’ll visit again next time I’m in town.

Well, the Hanging Bat wasn’t at all what I expected. For some reason I’d imagined a traditional old style place, and this is quite the opposite. It’s modern and trendy, almost factory style, with a mezzanine floor and a semi-basement room. The beer range was as expected though - six casks (with two off) and an impressive list of fourteen kegs. (Visited 2 February 2017).

Cool hipster ambiance, large and varied selection, friendly staff. Not cheap, but then not generic either. I’d be in here on every nightout if I lived in Edinburgh.

Very cool place, good selection of imports. I like the design of bar a lot. Definitely worth the highest rate of Edinburg beer pubs

Visited on a Saturday night during a De Molen event. Our small group had standing room only because this very large bar was packed and I had the feeling that was more of a typical Saturday night than a result of the beers on that night. Beer was in good condition, and staff served the crowd as quickly as possible. As De Molen kegs went dry, other beers were put on, which were also interesting to me. Not much more to say about the ambiance. No idea if food was still available when I arrived but it seemed like ordering would be a disaster given the crown that evening.

Nice place split between 3 levels makes it feel cosy, music wasn’t loud. They didn’t have any of there’s on tap at the time, but the selection was good, even if a fair few of the taps weren’t new to me I could still find plenty to choose from. The (cute) bar staff were all very friendly and happy to have a chat and a laugh. Didn’t try the food, although the list was short. Price might be an issue for some 5 x 1/3 for £13 regardless of strength. Well worth a visit, but maybe not 98/100
