The Bongo Club
Back and stronger than even in their new Cowgate digs, the Bongo Club is bigger and shinier that ever – offering up the same stellar selection of clubs that has helped build their reputation as one of the best places to boogie into the wee hours, bolstered by a selection on all-new nights and, yes, a beer garden!
Currently host to some of the best-loved club nights around, including Mumbo Jumbo, Messenger, Four Corners and Confusion is Sex – taking in roots, dub, funk, soul and electro soundscapes as they merrily go – it's the perfect antidote if you've been subjected to too much chart music. To sum up: Edinburgh institution.
