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.
Edinburgh minimum spends may start as low as £100 but most tend to hover around £300 minimum spend per session. Fees can grow as high as £1,000 or even higher for larger venues. Whatever your choice, just remember to have a great time whether it’s your birthday, wedding or just a get together for a blether!
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
