You can find us beneath The Dome bar and restaurant on Edinburgh's famous George Street. We were the first nightclub to open on George Street street back in 1997 and since then a lot has changed. Since our major refurbishment in 2013, we have won eleven awards at some of the country's biggest events including The SLTN Awards, the Scottish Entertainment Awards and the Best Bar None Awards.

​There's something for everyone at Why Not with five large cocktail bars, luxurious dance floor party booths, Edinburgh's biggest outdoor late-night garden, and Scotland's only full LED room.
