Frankenstein / Bier Keller


It’s not everyday that you stumble across a pub hosting daily live monster shows. As daylight fades and the twilight hour approaches, this famed Edinburgh venue’s spooky spectacle combines lights, music, sound effects and an animatronic Frankenstein monster, which descends slowly from the ceiling. There’s truly nothing like it in town.

Frankenstein is also a raucous party spot. Come at the weekend to find the tables swept away and live DJs dropping the party hits until late, and the pub hosts Edinburgh’s biggest karaoke night on Sundays running from 8pm until the early hours.

Frankenstein Bier Keller a perfect venue for holding large groups, private hire events and functions. It follows an Oktoberfest theme with long wooden tables, steins of premium beer and a German themed menu to match! There are a wide range of package deals available to make sure that your group receives the true Frankenstein experience!
