I have been going to this venue for about 20 years now. It has always been THE place to go for a very wide variety of music types, has multiple floors, so can host more than one night, so you can get two clubs for the price of one!
It is always the first venue I suggest to anyone in Edinburgh. Hope to meet you's there some time. ;~}x

In a nutshell... the best venue Edinburgh has. A stalwart for years and to think of this not to be part of Edinburgh's clubbing scene is a travesty. If people who live near clubs/pubs have rights... it's not to complain about noise issues. Pub's & Clubs need all the support the public can give & the council should support them & embrace the good they bring to a city. Not only should we be thanking the people who run these venues, we should be giving them more rights & extending their hours if we are to be considered a capital city which is currently dwarfed by the more liberal views of other cities. I salute the ruling to allow the Studio's to continue being a club & we should be supporting them to create a city where more would come if the laws were a bit more 'festival' like all year round. I for one tip my hat to you & will continue to support you:)

Amazing place you can still find unique and emerging clubs, I have had and still have the best and most unforgettable nights ever here.

4. Tom York3 Jun 2014, 6:59pm5 stars Studio 24 Report

Studio 24 is one of the last decent independent nightclubs in Edinburgh. It is one of the few clubs in the country to have a real underground feel and has hosted some of the best nights I have enjoyed since I moved to Edinburgh 8 years ago. Some have been spectacular modern clubbing experiences, or intermit magical live gigs and some nights there could as easily have been at a warehouse rave in the 90's, all have been largely riotous and lots of fun... A firm favourite for me, it has something real about it that you don't find in many other places!

3. Robert Halkett3 Jun 2014, 6:41pm5 stars Studio 24 Report

Simply Edinburgh`s finest venue. I work/play in hundreds of venues in dozens of countries annually, and the studios is definitely up there with the best of them.
If you've never been, you should go!

The Carlton Studios is one of the last of Edinburgh's proper venues. A legend in its own right, the nights put on there are still alternative and cutting edge and always great fun. You should keep an eye out for the Studios and their upcoming events, you won't be disappointed!

After hearing that studio 24 was going to close its doors last weekend I made a point of going down to say goodbye. During the night I asked staff why it was getting closed and heard this horrible story about 1 neighbour who lives nearby going on a soul quest to get the place closed down. I thought that this was shocking and felt terrible that such a cool venue and in my mind the only real place to go for alternative music was having to close its doors because the council would listen to one guy rather than the hundreds that go there every week. Then yesterday I heard from a friend that studio 24 had won its case and was going to stay open!!! finally a success story in Edinburgh for clubbing!! I love going down to this club, there's a real family feel, the staff are great and the tunes rawk. cheap drinks, cheap entry it really is Edinburgh's only alternative nightclub. Check it out.
