What's On in Edinburgh
While it may be the epicentre of one of the world's greatest arts and creative festivals, the Scottish capital also just happens to boast an exciting roster of events all year round. From thumping nightlife to quirky tours and regular comedy nights, there's a reason so many visitors flock to this historic city every year. So, what are you waiting for?

Bruntsfield bar Henricks is playing host to a series of regular events, including a gin enthusiasts club and 'meat Mondays' - a chance for carnivores to sample a range of rare and exotic fare. Welcoming guests to their cosy neighbourhood spot, tickets start at just £15, with drinks and food included.
A non-stop night of T Swizzle's very best bangers, this event promises a whole lotta dancing from the get go. Expect deep cuts, extended mixes and all the old school classics, as well as a few hits from Taylor's closest gal pals.
Regularly drawing some of the most talented ceilidh bands in the country, the Edinburgh Ceilidh Club throws weekly parties that are infectiously fun. If you were looking to blow off some steam after a tricky day at the office this is where you need to be.
Steeped in comedy heritage, the Scottish capital is known for attracting some of the funniest stand-ups around, and The Monkey Barrel is no different. Taking place every Friday and Saturday, this event is hosted by the hilarious and (be warned) interactive Rick Molland.
Why would you be anywhere else come Friday night than dancing until the early hours at Cabaret Voltaire? Hosting international DJs every week, this has fast become a stalwart on Edinburgh's house and techno scene. The likes of Horse Meat Disco, Bondax, HNNY and Karma Kid have all played here, making it a night out not to be missed.
