The Hive

Located in Edinburgh, The Hive is one of the most happening venues for entertainment. The Hive plays host to daily musical extravaganza, be it a party or a live performance. The Hive brings upcoming acts to the fore while they perform to live audiences and showcase their talents. There is a pretty impressive line up of drinks available too, so you can keep your spirits up.

15–17 Niddry Street, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, EH1 1LG
Cabaret Voltaire

When people say Cabaret Voltaire is 'underground', they mean two things. First, Voltaire is one of UK's leading venues for underground music. Showcased seven nights a week are the upcoming bands and DJs that will be the next on the scene. The genres of music differ so much that you can go in on a Tuesday and hear hard rock, and come back on Wednesday to hear electronica and house. Second, Cabaret Voltaire is literally underground. The club can be found in the winding, subterranean caverns below Old Town, and the walls and floor look like they were carved out of the city's bedrock. The space is small and the bartenders are friendly, which makes for an intimate, yet fun spot to catch a band no one's heard of yet. Check website for more details.

36-38 Blair Street, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, EH1 1QR
The Jazz Bar

Although the name of the place might be Jazz Bar, there are a lot of different music styles showcased at this bar. From soul to funk to DJs, there is always some good music going on at this place. Not usually open during the day, the bar has three different and distinct music times: Tea Time from 5p to 8:30p where the vibe is pretty laid back; The Early Gig until 11:30p with live music and local bands; Late N' Live with live music and DJs. This bar has a national atmosphere, having been nominated numerous times as a great place for live music!

The Liquid Room

The Liquid Room is located in the dark depths of Victoria Street, purveyor of all things dance and the occasional indie and rock act. As a live music venue, it sifts out the ropier local bands and offers up the only the best. From The Black Eyed Peas, Feeder, Vampire Weekend, and Sleigh Bells to Franz Ferdinand, Coolio, Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs and Snow Patrol, the club has played host to some of the top musical maestros. Local talents also pop up from time to time, and it is a pleasantly-intimate venue for a gig. As a nightclub, it flirts with a housey image while remaining mostly mainstream.
