Our night club proves why Edinburgh really is a Jekyll & Hyde city! Half of the club was once part of the infamous “underground Vaults” -once the haunt of criminals, thieves and the very unsavoury. It was in these former slums that many poor and innocent met a very grisly end! Ironically right next door, the front of the club; was once home to one of the richest men in Edinburgh, Lord Nicol Edwards.

Wherever you choose to sit back, relax and enjoy your drink, remember to be very careful. Many have placed their drink down simply to watch it slide straight off the table and smash against a wall as if thrown by an unseen force!

One spirit many of the male staff fear is that of “The Banshee”. When refurbishing the pub a group of workmen believed they all heard a terrifying scream. A few hours later, one of the workmen received a phone call informing him that a family member had passed away.

We have 3 bars currently selling over 60 varieties of rum, we have a pool table room, amazingly we have a free cinema with updated listings every week and we sell popcorn and hotdogs, every night you arrive will bring a new experience, from open mic, to fetish clubs and thrash metal bands playing in any of our 7 rooms until 3am every night.
