The Cool Guide to Edinburgh is a different type of city guide, which helps you to get the most out of the city, discovering and exploring quirky places that you didn't kw existed. This book delves into the best underground venues, the funkiest pubs, cafes, clubs and places to stay. It offers points of interest of film and literature locations, a guide to the best local beers, a soundtrack to the city and ideas for recovery after too many late nights. Edinburgh's coolest residents, including a model, artist, and DJ also give their run-down on their favourite places in the city.
