Of all of the bars that I’ve been to throughout the world, this one is probably my favorite. I love beer, and I love chill nights. These two qualities pretty much sum up The Brass Monkey.

Located just around the corner from the University of Edinburgh lies this little pub. From the outside, The Brass Monkey doesn’t look any different from the thousands of other watering holes in this beautiful and historic Scottish city. However, the fantastic beer selection and mattress room separate it from… well, just about any bar I’ve ever been to.

The mattress room is exactly how it sounds. Decorated with an abundance of pillows and specialized tables that hold your pint glass no more than a few inches off of the bed, this is the perfect place to relax over a few cold ones (or warm ones… It’s the UK after all).
When I happened to visit, Amelie was being played via projector in the mattress room. After a couple of hours dozing in and out of consciousness with my beer set in its holster, I honestly can’t remember whether I liked the movie. What I do remember, is that I loved this bar.
