Small concert venue, but still attractive. The intimate space lets you feel close to the performer. Mostly visited as part of a concert tour by Eric Bibb and always found the venue very good. The seats are rather hard, but not uncomfortable. Parts of the hall give limited view of the stage, so choose your seat carefully.

Concerts at 11 every morning. Difficult to decide what was the best this year, but possibly the programme by Anne-Sofie von Otter.

Cramped uncomfortable seating. The concert made up for it as Justin Currie was as excellent as usual

Saw Echo and The Bunnymen back in June of this year (2014). First time at this venue, so was feeling a bit nervous (apart from the butterflies in my stomach at seeing EATB again after some 30 odd years). I need not have worried, this was an ideal venue. You could sit or stand as you wished (I always stand... More

We saw Iain Hunter in the Queen's Hall on Saturday, as part of the Jazz Festival. What a terrific show in a good venue. Just a couple of things that are perhaps to be expected in this type of venue - the seats got quite uncomfortable by the end of the night, and it was very hot with no air... More

This is a really lovely venue. Was a church in it's day and gives a very informal feeling to a concert. So close up to the bands if you choose a seat downstairs. Very good too for people with walking issues as it's not a great distance to toilets, bar etc.

Despite having lived in Edinburgh for more than 30 years this was our first ever gig at the Queens Hall. What a great little venue! We were a little concerned about non reserved seating however we were early enough to get a good seat on the balcony and settled down with a fine glass of wine. The concert was performed... More

This is a really interesting venue, it looks great and is really different to most live music venues - it has a lovely intimate feel when there are gigs on (we saw They Might Be Giants which suited the venue perfectly!). The bar serves proper beer and the staff were all really friendly. Very impressed.
