Been a few times leading up to the festival, each time had a great experience, need tog et there in good time to get a decent seat. Good food too, I had food envy of my friends nachos. Decent bar too, and even had some cocktail kudos. Only downside is it gets very very stuffy as the evening goes on.... More

We've enjoyed nights out at The Stand for the past 15 years or so and we're never left feeling anything other than that we've just had a Great Night. Fridays and Saturdays ( out with Festival Time) are our favourites: 3 or 4 different acts, with a compere, who's often the star of the show ( if it's Joe Heenan,... More

Went to this venue during the festival. 6 venues to choose from. We were in Stand 4 and seen Suzie McCabe, very funny Glasgow comedienne. Good value at £8 per head. Worth a visit if you like comedy.

What a great little place, very small and intimate, so my advice is to book this online to avoid disappointment. The stand comedy club could easily move to a bigger venue and make more money from selling more tickers, but I'm so glad they haven't as this place has plenty of character and the chances of getting picked on by...

This is a favourite haunt that I try to visit whenever I visit Edinburgh. I try to eat here too as the limited menu offers great value and guarantees you get a seat and table for the night! I especially recommend their haggis, needs and tatties! Sit in the front row at your peril!

We arrived early so we managed to get a table, order food and have a drink before the show started. The acts were great, very funny indeed. Really good value for money and in a relatively central location. Only small venue.

Excellent night out with 13 friends to celebrate friends 50th birthday. The acts were great, food amazing (and massive portions) and drink reasonably priced. If you do want a seat go early (around 7pm) all the seats were gone within 20 minutes and the show doesn't start till 9pm.

We pre booked the Stand comedy club but still failed to get a table!! We were given seats but it was just too uncomfortable trying to hold a glass and eat a meal with no table! Its very hot inside as it is a very small, almost claustraphobic basement room. Bar prices are not too bad and food prices are... More

Really good value for money in a city where so much is so expensive. 3 acts for £10 on a Thursday. The food and drinks were also good value. The food is surprising good. Staff were friendly and helpful. The venue is small, get there early for a good seat but you can enjoy the show wherever you sit. The... More

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
