The fun in Edinburgh doesn't stop when the sun goes down. In fact, it just begins! Bars, clubs, lounges and live music venues-it's all reason for us to put our dancing shoes on and raise to toast to Edinburgh. Will you join in?
The Dome is a popular one-stop party center for any night out on the town. Built in 1847 as the headquarters for the Commercial Bank of Scotland, it now functions as a bar, restaurant and nightclub. Its décor adds a touch of class to any social gathering: The exterior was built in the Greco-Roman style, and the interior features sparkling chandeliers, stained-glass windows and an elegant cupola above the central bar. Here you can also enjoy some well-cooked, traditional Scottish food like peppered Haggis or go for something more chic like curried prawns on a red-pepper salad.
Play James Bond at Espionage, a bar and nightclub spread across 5 floors. Featuring music genres like rhythm & blues, hip-hop, electronica, house, chart-toppers, pop and more.
The Three Sisters offers four different bars: A Gothic section, an American bar with pitchers and shooters, an Irish bar with confessional booths and Guinness, and the outdoor courtyard, where barbecues take place in the summer. The dance venue upstairs makes it a popular choice for stag and hen parties. The pub is named after three sisters said to have stayed here and performed at the Tailor's Hall.
Frankenstein's Pub is one of the spookiest and most fun theme pubs in Edinburgh. Down shots from test tubes and watch the Rocky Horror Picture Show or the pub's very own Full Moon show during the Edinburgh Festival.
