Minimum Spend Venues Hire Guide

Edinburgh Castle looks over the city most majestically, however, those ancient stone walls are definitely not the place to start your search for free venue hire. Instead, begin in The Old Town down below. The winding lanes around Cowgate and the Charles Stewart House have many pubs and bars that offer minimum spend options for whole venue or private function rooms. The nearby Scotsman Hotel here even offers some function rooms with minimum spend. Widening your search to The New Town you can find many more options along George and Frederick Sts, including some funky lounges and garden-themed bars. 

While minimum spend options are a great way to score an essentially free venue, you do need to make sure you understand all the terms and conditions before you book. Check that food and drink are covered by the minimum spend and warn your guests ahead of the date. Most importantly, ensure that there are enough guests planning to attend to make reaching the minimum spend an easily achievable task.

You simply agree with the venue that you and your guests will spend an agreed-upon amount on food and drink during the event. If you do not reach that total by the end of the event, you must pay off the remainder. This is a great option for anyone looking to throw a memorable event without breaking the bank.
