Edinburgh Clubs

Scotland's fun-loving capital city

Clubbing is popular the world over, but especially so in Scotland's fun-loving capital city.

Edinburgh has a vibrant club scene with venues to suit every taste. These range from the upmarket and sophisticated where the beautiful people hang out to energetic party joints where you can hit the floor to the sound of some of the best DJs around and show off your smooth moves.

Most clubs open late, usually from around 10 or 11pm, and run well into the wee small hours, typically 3am.
