one of Scotland’s most iconic and historic music venues

Once part of Edinburgh’s underground vault systems, now a subterranean place of dancing. Over the years we’ve hosted some of the biggest names in the electronic music scene and fostered some of Edinburgh’s most successful talent.

The main room is installed with a state-of-the-art D+B soundsystem and tailored lighting to ensure an optimal sensory clubbing experience.
