Thank you to Allan Ross who wrote:

Merryman's Cellar Bar

"My dad was David (Danny) Ross who owned the Merryman's Cellar Bar in Frederick Street in the late-1960s / early-1970s, when I was but a lad.  I'd be interested if anyone had recollections of him."

Danny's Bar

"He also had Danny's Bar in Hanover Street.  Regrettably, he dies a few years ago but always a character!"


"Names that I remember are:

Charlie McNair

Alex Howden

Tam Paton."

Johnny Keating

"Dad was 'a bit of a drummer'.  I have a copy of The Edinburgh Evening News when he played the Eldorado under his own name with a full band.

As a younger man, he was also known to Johnny Keating."
