The Most Dangerous Pub Crawl In Cinema | Crosslands
Crosslands

Film: Trainspotting (1996)

Location: Edinburgh
Opening hours: 11am until the police arrive
Clientele: A sociopathic Scotsman; some less sociopathic Scotsmen
Entertainment: Drinking. Fighting. Fighting and drinking
Price of a round: The average price of a pint in Glasgow is £2.75. Now there are five of you and you’ll need one pint to lob over the balcony rail. So, £16.50. Maths, aye?

Generally speaking, this pub seems nice – it’s a good size, seems busy and has a lively atmosphere – then someone (i.e. Begbie) has to go and throw a pint glass off the second floor. As is the theme with these establishments, brawls break out with chairs as well as punches being thrown and chances are you'll come down with a case of not really knowing what's going on. It might be worth poking your head in the door but you'll run the risk of taking a glass to the head or being kicked in the pipeworks. Good luck!

3 No Karova Milk Bar???
Seriously guys and girls!?!? Where's the Karova Milk Bar, from Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange"? It's probably the most obvious oversight you've ever made. More

4 Slaughtered lamb
As long as this one was included I'm happy, could have possibly added a pub in lock stock and two smoking barrels. More
