Obtaining the Yellow Card, you will be able to buy pints of a pound! at Tron on wednesday. It is full of erasmus students. I also recomend Hoogshead and El Barrio on monday. gaia on thuesday . Establisment on Thrusday, potterrow on friday and Spionage on saturday. edinburgh has a great night life but you must know where to go each day beacuse there are great offers. Furthermore don´t miss Frankenstein, it is wounderfull but expensive.

The best cafe is the Elephant House on George IV Bridge and the best cinema is the Filmhouse on Lothian Road. With regard to nightlife, I quite like the downstairs of the Negociants on Potterrow. The Edinburgh International Festival in August must not be missed!!

During cold hard winter, sipping a good whisky is always a good excuse. For the none alcohol beverages, Kenneils cafe on Victoria street does it very well. Pubs are great. Edinburgh is not really famous for its discos.

Most of the clubs are nice (but expensive to ge into), the SNAPFAX card makes night life and general student life a lot cheaper
