A tavern I've been to several times on Royal Mile in Edinburgh, Scotland within a short stroll of Edinburgh Castle.
Not only did I like the Scottish beer and haggis I had there, I also liked the fascinating history behind the name.
The tavern is named after William Brodie, one of the inspirations for Robert Louis Stevenson’s book: "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde". Born in 1741 Brodie was a deacon of the Guild of Wrights. By day, he was a respectable citizen, a member of the town council but by night, he was a womanizer, he consorted with lowlife; gambling and drinking. His dark side meant he had to take to burglary to pay his gambling debts, leading to his hanging in 1788 on gallows some say he designed and built. Rumors swirled long after his apparent demise that he had cheated death and escaped to Paris.

Being of Scottish ancestry I liked the name but I always had an affinity for the life story of William Brodie. I could relate and still can with the dual nature of being human… the struggle within. Ha…so there ya go… my name can go to dark places or simply be a place where you grab a pint.
