Frankenstein & Bier Keller

Housed in a 19th century church, Mary Shelley’s tale gets real! Frankenstein is a unique themed pub on George IV Bridge, the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town, just a stone’s throw away from the popular tourist destinations along the Royal Mile.

You’ll love the horror themed decoration with monster shows, flashing lights, electric static charges, vats of bubbling liquid and the original black and white Frankenstein movies played on large screens above the bar so come and join us.



We have a great selection of drinks including “The Monster” cocktail to the “Spicy Bride”shooter. Topped off with a number of draught beers, wines, spirits as well as mockails for the kids. Our pizza menu is available all day.
