A night out in Edinburgh...
Not sure where to go tonight?
Edinburgh is known for its huge student population and diverse nightlife, so a night out is always fun, no matter what you're looking for! Here are just a few of the spots you should check out:
Situated in the heart of the old town this is the perfect spot to start your night in a beer garden. Almost guaranteed to be buzzing, cheap drinks and a variety of events including food festivals and comedy shows are sure to get you in the right mood!
You can’t really go wrong with a Brew Dog...great beer, decent food, friendly service, board games available and a chilled atmosphere. There are two in Edinburgh so wherever you’re heading they are well worth a stop! Open until 1am every night so a great option if you fancy a quieter one but don’t want to head home yet.
If you fancy something a little bit different then make your way over to Boteco Do Brasil. Restaurant by day, chilled drinks in the evening and late night club after dark this venue offers a bit of everything! With Latino beats all night and special events on a regular this is a place to let your hair down.
Popular amongst most students this Irish bar has everything from live music to live sport on every night of the week. Their student discount card is definitely worth getting your hands on with 50% off food and 25% off drinks every day it's hard to resist! Making every day feel like a Saturday McSorley's is a great hang out to enjoy any night.
If you fancy doing something a little different then how about a pool hall? With cocktails, pints, large screen TV’s showing all sport, Retro arcade games and XBOX one, this isn’t your average pool hall. Marcos has plenty of student offers and affordable prices so this night out won't break the bank.
You'll find this quirky bar hidden downstairs in a barbershop! If you want a great selection of drinks, a cool place to chill after uni or somewhere nice to go on a date then check it out - if you can find the secret entrance...
Whilst this may be disguised as a cocktail bar don’t let that fool you. This venue is home to some of the best party nights in Edinburgh with a rotation of resident DJs keeping the dancefloor bouncing until early morning. Something going on 7 nights a week so always something to keep you entertained!
Grab some friends and explore - have fun!
