Excellent venue in a very handy location! The room was perfect for hosting our hen party afternoon activities and all the guests kept commenting the same. Connie was very helpful and let us in slightly early to decorate. Would definitely recommend using this room for similar events.

Friendly welcome, good coffee and a relaxed atmosphere which resulted in a much nicer environment to share ideas and develop as a team.

About Slow Progress Records and Coffee

Versatile space in the back of a record and coffee shop in the Old Town of Edinburgh. Perfect for meetings, workshops, rehearsals, acoustic music/ spoken word performances. For meetings we can accommodate up to 16 people, and for performances we can fit a lot more.

The space has a calm and relaxed atmosphere, with a garden view out of the window and easy access to toilets.

The front of our business sells coffee and other hot drinks, soup and various snacks that you are welcome to take into the room with you. We also have a curated selection of new vinyl records for sale.

We currently do not have a full kitchen and also do not allow food to be brought into the room from outside the premises unless with prior permission.

Accessibility: the front of the shop is accessible, however the space is up 5 quite steep stairs so not wheelchair accessible. The toilets are on the same level as the event/ meeting space.
