Party Venues Hire Guide

A city with a striking personality, Edinburgh is a lively party hub that targets all groups. Positioned in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle, the Old Town is a popular area for students. It offers a nice selection of classic pubs and casual hangout places. This is the go-to place for pub quizzes and other laid-back gatherings. In the New Town, you can find some more karaoke bars alongside versatile clubs for dancing the night away. Edinburgh’s nightlife is quite diverse, from jazz and blues to a lively electronic music scene. Everyone is sure to find something to suit their taste! But what if you’d like a private space all to yourselves?

Many of Edinburgh’s venues are readily available for private hire. There is a variety of clubs, bars and restaurants in the city centre containing exclusive rooms and booths. Next to Charlotte Square a close-knit section of private bars, function rooms and mezzanines can be found. 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. A short trip south will take you to the Old Town. 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 or a straight hire fee. Agreeing on a minimum spend can be ideal for large groups where you know a lot of food and drinks will be ordered. If you’re a smaller group, party venue hire fees may be easier to settle, with guests seeing to their own refreshments. Hire fees land between the £200 to £600 mark, while minimum spend varies depending on the size of the venue and type of booking. For whole venues, expect prices around the £4000 to £5000 mark, while if you’re after a private room, it’s usually around £200 to £800. Just be sure to know how many guests to expect, and their needs before committing to anything. Our bespoke venue finder can help provide you with all the information you need prior to booking your party venue in Edinburgh.
