Back in the Eighties and Nineties, this landmark hotel on the North Bridge often played host to bands performing at the nearby Playhouse.
Rock and punk legends such as The Stranglers and Alice Cooper were among the visitors.
You can still hear echoes of all that rock ‘n’ roll rebellion every week when the Nineteen Hundred Bar and Lounge at Hilton Edinburgh Carlton holds its Prohibition Friday events.
Every Friday evening, the bar hosts live music and DJs from 4.30pm. It’s a great way to finish the working week and celebrate the start of the weekend.
