We are open from 7pm Sunday thru Thursday and from 5pm Friday and Saturday right thru to 3am every night!
Our venue 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. Edwards was Lord Provost of Edinburgh during the reign of King James VI/I of Scotland & England, and was reputedly a vile man – not only did he abuse his own wife horribly, but he is said to have had a basement dungeon beneath his house in which he at times personally tortured suspected witches before trial.
Now, along with many other spirits, ‘The Banshee’ haunts this Labyrinth. When refurbishing the venue 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.
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!
