Frankenstein / Bier Keller is what it says on the tin, a German-style beer hall that's been decked out with spooky animatronics, sound effects and decor that look like they've come right out of the Mary Shelley classic. This is a top spot if you fancy something a little different this year.

For a birthday meal in Edinburgh with an extra touch of pizazz, make your way over to Ox 184 on Cowgate. Chow down on wood-fired fare, then sip on some of Scotland's best whiskies, craft beers and more before throwing shapes to the tunes of their late-night DJ.
