The operator was being aggressive over some girl who accused me of spilling drink on her when that was NOT the case. Apparently, personal feelings towards individual customers are more than enough to get you thrown out like a dog. Extremely unprofessional.

There are not many places in Edinburgh where you can enjoy a bit of reggaeton on a saturday night. Fortunately there is el barrio. Great door staff, good crowd inside.

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
