But what if you’d like a private space all to yourselves?

It’s also good to walk down George Street towards St Andrew Square where you’ll encounter whole venues, halls and lounges that can be flexible to your party needs and desires.

There, in the gaze of famous landmarks such as St. Giles’ Church and National Library of Scotland, you’ll find a variety of private booths, churches turned into unique pubs and stylish bars. With so much variety, these areas can bring in anyone from large corporations and offices, birthday parties, and hen or stag dos.
Price-wise, Edinburgh’s party venues are split between offering minimum spend, per-person hire and dry hire fees.

Dry hire fees range between £200 to £600, while minimum spend varies depending on the size of the venue and type of booking.It should usually cost around £200 to £3000.
