About the Pub
  I am still waiting for my next trip to Edinburgh to actually be taken inside Fingers Piano Bar but I have seen the queues waiting to gain admission and it seems popular. A friend tells me it is open so late that there is only one place to go after 'Fingers' and that is home to bed!

Great bar
What a great place, if you want to be cool, this is not the bar for you.. if you want to party, this is definitely the place for you. the piano man plays all the songs you want to sing and dance too at the top of your voice, like pianoman, don't stop believing, hey jude etc.. drinks are pricey as it is a late night, live entertainment venue, open til 3am..
entrance is free, and the doorman are some of the most accommodating in the city.. if you like rock'n'roll high energy piano entertainment.. its the bar for you!

fingers has been around for over 25years and has a faithful and loyal customer base.. people from all walks of life, working class, upper class, students. the typical customer is the kind of person who doesn't notice 'how sticky the floor is', especially when their hands are in the air and having the time of their life. people don't come to fingers to find themselves, they come to loose themselves!!

well worth trying out.. gets busy from midnight onwards..

Best entertainment in Edinburgh
Dunno who the the supposed miming piano player was, and I am a very 30 something who never has trouble getting in. The beer is pricey but the weekend crowd enjoying a singalong to the likes of Cass (does he still play? - He's over 60) or whoever playing the tunes is just about a good an atmosphere as you can get.

Its called Fingers. Make your own mind up
When I tell my friends in London that I go to a pub (regularly) called Fingers, they assume I've turned into a sex pest. When I explain in detail the nature of the beast, they are convinced I've turned into the worst kind of sex pest. One who prays on not only the drunk and the bored, but the ugly. My friend who actually is Jamie Somerville has been seen doing the burping worm breakdance (his very own) in here, and I've been lying on the piano singing at the top of my voice. There isn't much gets you kicked out of here..... Its a place to watch and be watched, as long as you realise everyone's laughing.....

FIngers Is Evil
My friend looks a lot like Jimmy Somerville and he goes to Fingers on a regular basis to pull bored Australians. Pretty much sums it up really.

Very Dodgy and Fake Performances
This bar has a very good good reputation for live music, but upon closer inspection of one of the performers last week I noticed something funny... he was miming the piano! if it's good live music you want, try the Jazz club or Whistle Binkies in old town.

There are always fights at the end of the end and sometimes in the middle, please avoid if you are in any way self respecting!

After several visits I have decided I shall not be returning.

Hope they like the look of you at Fingers
After queueing to get into Fingers Piano Bar for around 20 minutes on Friday night, my two frineds and I were told we weren't getting in because we don't want people like you in here. I would have thought 3 thirty somethings, not drunk, money to spend, on a night out were exactly who they wanted but there you go - apparently if the manager doesn't like the look of your face...... give it a miss if yuo have any reservations about it - and the toliets are disgusting!!
