Ballie Ballerson Edinburgh

Edinburgh's student clubs are topped of by the arrival of Ballie Ballerson, the famous ball pit party spot that also fronts a range of nostalgia-inducing cocktails, including a Dip Dab concoction. Better yet, DJs bring disco, house and RnB beats.

Why Not

Sleek, elegant but still able to bust a move when it counts, Why Not has been a firm favourite amongst Edinburgh's student population since its refurbishment a few years ago. Based on George Street, the club's lineup of resident DJs create an unbeatable party vibe.

Sneaky Pete's

Sneaky Pete's might be a small club with a capacity of just 100 but it's firmly cemented in the heart of every funk and soul-loving student in the Scottish capital. Open throughout the week and with drinks prices starting at just £2, it ticks most boxes for a boozy student night out in Edinburgh.
