Nightclubs in Edinburgh

From 80s classics to techno, whatever keen of club music you’re into, Edinburgh is packed with an array of clubs where you’ll be able to dance away into the wee small hours!


The Liquid Room

Since opening in 1997, The Liquid Room has hosted artists from all music genres: from hip hop to rock and country to pop, as well as hosting some of the world’s top DJs.

Bands that have graced the stage of this venue in the past include Black Eyed Peas, Calvin Harris, Dizzee Rascal, Franz Ferdinand, Snow Patrol and the View.



Sneaky Pete’s

The 100 capacity Sneaky Pete’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 1970s as a bar, before reinventing itself in 2010 as a hip club and live music venue.

The Bongo Club

As a leading light in the UK club scene, expect to find events from techno, drum and bass, electro and jungle at the Bongo Club. A well-established institution in the underground club scene, it also hosts regular events dedicated to 1990s Chicago house and African funk.



Cabaret Voltaire

Cabaret Voltaire is an attractive gig space. Operating midweek as a casual hang out and speakeasy bar, the club transforms at weekends to host gigs and monthly club nights. Famed for hosting Mumford and Sons, keep an eye on their upcoming gigs as tickets sell out fast.

La Belle Angel

La Belle Angele

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.



CC Blooms

A renowned part of Edinburgh’s gay scene, CC Blooms operates as a restaurant and bar, with a basement late-night club.

With a loyal local base and attracting an open-minded crowd, their popular weekend club nights always pull in the crowds.
