We attended the hogmanay ceilidh and were unfortunately hugely disappointed.
Firstly, the ceilidh tickets were from 9:30pm but it was only at 9:30 that guests were permitted entry, the actual ceilidh did not begin until around 10pm. Until now, I had never attended a ceilidh...More
Went here to see Aynsley Lister a fantastic blues rock guitarist and had a fantastic night. The sound quality of the gig was amazing really good atmosphere. Everyone seemed to enjoy the night. Would definitely recommend this place to see a gig.
Website fotos are deceptive. Venue looks good cos it is very well and subtlety lit. I was there to attend a concert by Dutch masters Focus. The venue is a series of historic subterranean vaulted chambers, concert sound is echoey but good. I was appalled...More

We went to a launch meeting, three floors underground, what a fascinating place, erie, welcoming and right under the bustling city of Edinburgh. A short walk from the main drag and close to some great pubs and diners, superb ales on tap from Williams Bros...More

We were in The Caves on a Sunday night to see one of our favourite bands Tidelines and the boys were superb as always but this review is about the venue.
What a place, the history buff in me was in raptures looking at every...More
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
