Bars, pubs, and restaurants are some of the most popular spaces hired for celebrations - in the end, they serve great food and drinks, which is the foundation of a good party! These venues can often be hired exclusively for bigger events, but they also offer private and semi-private spaces, including dining rooms, lounges, and bar areas. You can also find private function rooms at hotels, which is a great choice if your guests need accommodation!

Booked Snug at Porty Vault
Our experience at the Snug, Porty Vault, was fantastic overall. The venue was clean and well-maintained, and the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating throughout our event. Overall, we had an excellent experience and would highly recommend

Booked Clubroom at Angel's Share Hotel
Organised a private family birthday party at Angel's Share - it couldn't have gone more smoothly. The manager, Dori, was an absolute delight to deal with; all requests and queries were responded to promptly in an obliging, friendly manner. The venue itself is lovely; the Clubroom where we were situated was tucked out of the way of the main bar but still connected enough we didn't feel totally alone. All the staff were super friendly and helpful (especially Helena!), and throughout the night all the guests felt welcome and well-looked after. The food is of excellent quality as well. Would 100% recommend Angel's Share for private events!

Booked D'Low at Dragonfly Cocktail Bar
The team at Dragonfly were really helpful during the organisation of my partner’s 40th birthday party. Arron got back to me really quickly with any questions, provided great suggestions re catering and decorations. The private room was the perfect size and guests commented that the location was handy and central, too. I would definitely recommend Dragonfly as a location for a small private function.

Booked Great Scots Hall at Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh City
The food was lovely and venue was perfect for what we wanted and the staff worked really hard to help get it set up despite a few technical difficulties. Would definitely book again.

Booked Wee Tap at Hanover Tap, Edinburgh
I held a birthday party here for around 50 people in late January 2023. The team were very communicative and extremely helpful in the runup to the event. They were able to adjust the food pre-orders with relatively short notice and were incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. The staff on the night (in particular Lucas behind the bar) were amazing and eager to ensure that everything was going well. The space itself was perfect -- plenty of room for people both to sit down but also stand up and mingle. The food was unbelievably good, especially the vegan cheesecake! I had an excellent night and would whole-heartedly recommend the Wee Tap! I'll almost definitely be coming back here next year to celebrate my birthday again :)

Booked Karaoke Room at Eastside
The room we hired was perfect for our small group of 7 but could've easily fit twice as many. The manager on shift John and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful and made sure we were having a good time.
