Stag in Edinburgh. Help/Advice needed

I have to organise a stag do over the summer, and the groom is leaning towards Edinburgh.
 
I've never been there so any advice on pubs/clubs, hotels etc would be much appreciated.
 
Thanks

    My advice- don't go....
    The festival is on at that time of the year, so maybe catch a show.
    However for pubs/clubs its poor.

    The Festival is usually July-September, Fringe I think is usually through August.
     
    Stay at The George, it's the real deal.

    A stag in Edinburgh sounds dreadful.
     
    The bouncers will stop you at nearly every establishment and ask where you've been, how much you've had to drink, how much is in your group... Chances are you wont get in most places. One of the strictest cities I've been to for a night out.
     
    I've only been a couple times, but I really liked (the women) in Le Monde. Opal Lounge was half decent club wise.

    Stayed through there for 8 months its awful.
     
    As above if a big group you wont get in.
    If you do get in(will be a crap empty place) the people in said place look at you as scum, if your seen to be having a good time.
     
    Strange atmosphere.
     
    Also what exactly do you want out of the stag do?

    IB I don't think you realise what Edinburgh is like:
     
    Scots pretending to be English
    and
    English pretending to be Scots.

    Opposite of the above really I think the festival would be a great time to go and I lived in city centre for years.
     
    Grasmarkets/Cowgate is obvious choice for stag do's should be ok getting in there. Got all the strip clubs up the road there and plenty saunas if thats your thing
     
    George St area which jindlay mentioned will be tougher to get in same as nicer bars in any city but not too difficult if use use common sense i.e. enter bars in staggered groups of 2-4 guys.
     
    Check booking.com asap for cheap hotels and youll be sorted. Same with train tickets if you need them. They go on sale 12 weeks prior to departure and the quicker you get them they cheaper they are
