I took a few service users and they really enjoyed it I'm a bit concerned that we weren't asked for ID as carers which may leave vulnerable adults at risk of exploitation. The club is fairly run down it could do with new flooring and...More

Recently had a nice out here. The club it's self was fine and appeared clean. Drinks were reasonably priced. Only down side was a very strong smell of urine coming from the ladies toilets.

This place ticks every cliche - stinks of smelly feet, your shoes literally stick to the carpet, the free 'cocktail' is watered down rubbish. The acts are poor. Cheap, nasty & tacky. Don't waste your money 😠

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
