The Bongo Club

A popular spot among Edinburgh's creative crowd, The Bongo Club has an international reputation for its diverse lineup of live events. Owned by a local arts charity, this place spotlights underground musicians and up-and-coming talent, featuring nearly every genre; from funk and soul to house and RnB.

Sneaky Pete's

A student-friendly live music venue in the heart of Cowgate, Sneaky Pete's is something of an institution. This 100-capacity space has previously played host to the likes of Young Fathers and Future Islands, among countless others; it really is one of the best night clubs in Edinburgh.

Why Not

Open until 3am most nights of the week, Why Not is the place for late-night revellers. Showcasing a range of stylish spaces for you to drink, dance and mingle in, this George Street favourite is one of the best clubs in Edinburgh for students.

The Hive Nightclub

The Hive is notorious for being a den of cheap drinks, cheesy tunes and an amazing party atmosphere. The best bit? Entry is totally free between Sunday and Thursday. So, whether you're heading over for pop-punk or urban classics, you'll have pennies to spare.
