Unusual Venues Hire Guide

Not every event needs to go by the book nor does your venue choice. While Edinburgh’s incredibly atmospheric scenery cannot be ignored, when you add in an unusual and unique venue choice - well, you’ve got the potential for an event that you’ll be talking about for years to come.

The historic legacy of Edinburgh combined with its inventive approach to modern repurposing has yielded a wealth of interesting and cool places. Start your search in The Old Town, this district has many restaurants and clubs in quirky spaces, take a look at the amazingly atmospheric The Vault in the Cabaret Voltaire. In fact, many of the vaults in this part of the city have been opened up as function rooms, so take a look at your options in this venue type, particularly in South Bridge. Is there anything more atmospheric then artistically lit arched stone ceilings?

The New Town also has a lot on offer for those with alternative tastes. The Mansfield Traquair, also known as the city’s “Sistine Chapel”, offers full service venues for any kind of occasion you could think of. Furthermore, several other of the city’s old churches have been repurposed as bars and restaurants and these are a definite win if you are hunting for stunning surroundings for a reception, party or office event.

If you are looking to go truly fringe venue, consider some of the city’s old factories or warehouses. You have several choice locations to pick from including an old biscuit factory, a beer factory, and a granary. The industrial atmosphere of these old workplaces really appeal to modern tastes with their clean lines and exciting past. For these sorts of venues, check up towards Leith.
