Drinks? Your thoughts

THE Compass (Leith), the Tun, The World’s End, the Jolly Judge and the Jinglin’ Geordie have all been put forward as possible venues for – in the words of one correspondent yesterday – a “pseudo press club” for Edinburgh.

It follows a suggestion yesterday on allmediascotland.com that a pub might be chosen as a recognised place for media folk to meet in Edinburgh on a Friday evening – for friends past and present to bump in to each other and where visiting journalists might head for in the reasonably certain knowledge of striking up a conversation with a colleague

The exercise will soon be repeated for other parts of the country, but, in the meantime, any views, for and against, the above suggestions?

Any other possible venues?
