Tucked beneath one of Leith Walk's most colourful bars lies Brig Below, a basement venue which is fast becoming one of the capital's hottest gig spots.
Upstairs, Bar Brig serves swanky cocktails in a space decked out with cosy wooden booths and makeshift beer barrel tables. There's the odd open mic night and acoustic set to soothe the ears, but really downstairs is where the action's at. With its ready-made stage and PA system available, Brig Below is an ideal venue if you're hosting an event, or if your band is looking for that perfect patch to warm up their pipes.
With the venue's capacity holding up to 80 standing or 40 seated, the setting boasts just the right amount of intimacy without that all too intrusive sitting on each other's knees feeling you might get from a Fringe venue or traditional cellar bar.
There's a wee bar for hire too with a select range of tipples on offer, or if you've got a hankering for a martini that simply won't abate, you can simply pop upstairs to the main bar and peruse the cocktails on offer above. Buffet snacks can be arranged too. Happy days.
