Tucked away in the heart of Edinburgh, Electric Circus is an enjoyably bizarre affair: a neon lit, Clockwork Orange inspired club bar. The club space doubles up as an intimate gig venue with plenty of up-and-coming bands gracing the stage, while the private karaoke rooms provide the perfect opportunity to embarrass yourself in front of your friends. Describing itself as a ‘boutique venue’, Electric Circus promises a relaxed, house party-style experience, with a club night and a drink to suit almost any taste.
