A new Irish pub is set to open on a street in Edinburgh city centre.

Bar Soba, an Asian Street food outlet located at 104 Hanover Street, closed down last year.

But a new planning bid shows a new venue named The Boston Bar is set to take its place with live music and sport on offer.

Encore Bars, which owned the closed-down Frederick Street nightspot Bourbon, has submitted a bid to change the premises’ signage.


It is understood the building has been refurbished in preparation for its re-opening as an Irish bar.

Bar Soba traded in the Capital for 11 years before suddenly shutting its doors in May 2023. The Glasgow-based chain remains active in its city of origin.
