My band were recently in Sound Control Edinburgh and decided to go for an afternoon pint. The Blue Blazer was our choice after passing just a few bars. The music was Basket Case by Greenday, the bar womans communication and tone wasnt the nicest and when i asked if i could pay with my card I was told there was a charge added for paying in this way. The pint was dear enough!! So this wasn't a good start, we then sat down next to the fire, quietly enjoyed our pint in the near empty pub, then left. The pint was as good as our local lager, i cant comment on ales of whiskys. The place is small but quite welcoming if only the barstaff would fake a smile. I may return.

cracking selection of real ales , and a nice trad edinburgh boozer let down by certain members of the bar staff here whose ignorant attitude leaves an awful lot to be desired

My band were recently playing a gig in the liquid room. we arranged to meet several friends at the Blazer. I arrived early and - being stuffed with the cold - went to the bathroom to blow my nose. on my return, i was asked to leave. according to the rude and practically fossilised manager, i had obviously been sniffing cocaine in the bathroom! we left. no great loss to us, maybe our hoard of friends - who we stood outside and met before going to bar kohl - would have made a difference to the presumably pathetic takings of this awful bar. i'll not be returning

This is a good old traditional Edinburgh Pub. They have a good selection of Real Ales, and whisky. I have always found the bar staff good. The only problem for me is that it really can get packed out quickly with people as it is pretty small. But some of you may like the atmosphere , but I dont like feeling like I am in the Black hole of Calcutta! Try and visit in the afternoon when it is quiet.

Our evening at the Blue Blazer was spoiled by an arrogant and ignorant member of the bar staff. On asking for a particular type of whisky we were informed that it was the 'premium, expensive' sort. Once poured and on enquiring that a cube of ice was requested, a huff and a puff was heard with the remark that ' that's not the way to drink malt whisky' !!. It wasn't a joke as well. Total ignorance of customer service. The real ales are pretty poor as well. Weak as dishwater. Don't go unless you want your evening spoiled by the worst kind of service.

An amazing selection of spirits to rival many a style bar, at a fraction of the cost. This is a traditional pub for those that know their booze. And where else can you hear The Dead Kennedys followed by Nina Simone? A real gem of a place. Will definately return next time I'm in town.

A well managed, friendly and lively establishment. Excellent gantry, a regularly varied selection of real-ales and a variety of staples including Baltika, 1664, Guinness and Special (check for availability). A great place to kick-off a night out, somewhere to wind down at the end of an evening or spend the night in.

This is a great pub in the heart of the city, it is a vibrant down to earth pub with great staff and a good selection of beers. The Blazer is a good loacl with lots of regulars and is a stones throw from most of Edinburghs clubs.
