The 100 capacity Sneaky Peat's holds the accolades of Music Week Grassroots Music Venue of the Year 2019 and DJ Mag #99 Club in the World – not to mention the smallest entry of all time! Tucked away in the Cowgate, part of the lower level of Edinburgh's historic Old Town, this small club started life in the 1970’s as a bar, before reinventing itself in 2010 as a hip club and live music venue.

La Belle Angele was once regarded as Edinburgh premier venue for up and coming acts, hosting gigs from The Libertines, Oasis and Radiohead, before it was destroyed in a fire. Fully rebuilt in 2014, this 500-capacity venue is now better known as a night club and favourite afterparty venue for those in the know.
