Taking its name from Edinburgh's notorious 19th century serial killers, the former of whom was hung just along the road in the Lawnmarket, the Burke and Hare is Edinburgh's best known, pole-dancing and strip bar, located at the top of what is fondly referred to as the "pubic triangle."

While this Edinburgh spot has become renowned for ladies flashing the flesh, the bar is close to a number of theatres and cinemas in the Lothian Road-Tollcross area and many pubs in the Grassmarket.
