This famously unpretentious, dual-dancefloored Cowgate haunt is beloved by students and pretty young things alike. Open every night of the week, mixing up a rainbow spectrum-playlist of musical styles from electropop to indie hits, R'n'B to nu-metal, and a pinch of just about everything else in between (read: a hefty dose of cheesey pop). We'd also suggest making sure you've got your gladrags on, as the roaming Hive photographers are always on the hunt for happy clubbers to plaster across their Facebook site. Smile, a'body.
