Festival Theatre

Before the birth of the Edinburgh Festival Theatre, opera seemed to have no real home in the Scottish capital. Several plans for an Opera House were suggested, shelved and eventually rejected. Instead of constructing anew, the decision was finally taken to refurbish and revamp the old Empire Theater, and in the summer of 1994 a new, glass-fronted Festival Theater was opened. The large stages are now graced by a variety of performances, from ballet and opera to drama and cabaret. During the Edinburgh International Festival, the theater hosts many prestigious concerts. The summer Proms season with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra is another annual highlight. Prices vary so call for details.

Royal Lyceum Theatre

Just off the bustling Lothian Road, the Royal Lyceum mixes mainstream, populist drama with adventurous explorations into new territories. It's a production theater, which means it creates plays for the stage from scratch. Inside, they offer four theater bars, the Tuscan Square for food and they still have ice cream available at the interval. There are good disabled facilities, including audio-described performances. Take advantage of a unique service whereby you can hire some of their costumes - so perhaps that fantasy of yours can come true after all.

Cameo Picturehouse

This three-screen cinema is the place to see major art house flicks. The building has been home to cinema since 1914 and offers a stylish and comfortable venue to delve into the world of foreign and innovative film making. It's one of the most comfortable screens in Britain, boasting some great seating and quality sound. You will also be witness to a huge range of operatic and theatrical performances all year round. The funky bar has local art on the walls and is a relaxing place to grab a light snack and drink. It is fully licensed, so you can take your tipple into the auditorium. The bar is also home to numerous events from time to time. Look out for the late night and matinee screenings of cult films. The venue can also be hired for private or business events.

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.

Murrayfield Stadium

Scotland is a a nation that is passionate about rugby. Therefore it is no surprise that its national rugby stadium was built way back in 1925. Murrayfield Stadium is home to Scotland's national rugby union team and hosts local as well as international games throughout the season. Though Murrayfield is mainly a rugby field, it is also a venue for concerts and other events. If you're interested in learning more about the stadium, check out the guided tours, conducted from Monday to Friday.

The Stand Comedy Club

Come here for comedy, seven days a week, from some of Britain's best-known comedians, alongside some lesser known talents and a variety of 'up and coming' (and terrified) hopefuls. This popular venue frequently offers other attractions like comedy quizzes, free improvs, as well as a full program of Fringe Festival performances. It is rowdy but good-natured and gets busy on weekends as it is, so book early. There is also a bar at the venue that offers some delectable pub fare and drinks.
