When it comes to great nights out in Edinburgh on a budget, Pilgrim has to be top of the list. A rustic, almost industrial-like bar, the venue's range of craft beers and international spirits are all on offer at a fraction of the price you'd normally expect to pay. 

Bongo is an urban club that prides itself on having a rough-around-the-edges look. Decorated in a plain manner with wood panelled floors and exposed brick walls, the club is famous for taking things to the next level, thanks to its talented resident DJs and impressive sound system. 

You'll struggle to find a venue that serves cheaper drinks in Edinburgh than the Hive Nightclub. Based just off the Cowgate and with 3 different rooms of music, the venue thrills everyone that walks through its doorway with cheap shots, bottles of beer and a range of revolving drinks offers. 

An intimate club that's known for its live music, DJ sets and unbeatable drinks prices, Sneaky Pete's is never afraid to host a boozy club night. Despite only having a capacity of 100, the bar uses its great line-up of DJs and heavily discounted drinks to create an unrivaled fun-loving energy. 

A lively sports bar that doesn't really know when to stop, The Three Sisters laughs in the face of pricey cocktail bars and expensive whisky bars, instead offering its guests a range of classic beers, wines and spirits on the cheap.
