The Wee Red Bar

The Wee Red Bar is a much loved Edinburgh institution in terms of a lively and intimate venue for both up and coming and established bands and Djs.

Operating since the early 1980s and located in the grounds of Edinburgh College of Art via a secret, concealed entrance on Lady Lawson Street.

The venue prides itself in its excellent sound quality and puts on many, live gigs ranging from Reggae to Post-Rock, and every other genre in-between. In many cases The Wee Red Bar has given bands their first ever gig. Recent more known names who have graced the stage - Dingus Khan, Frightened Rabbit, Young Fathers and Django Django. All gigs run from 7pm till 10pm so plenty of time to catch the last bus home on a school night.

The most popular and well known club night is The Egg, every third Saturday in the month. Playing the finest in Indie, Garage & Soul, Punk & New Wave, Psych and so much more. Other club nights include XOXO, Temptation and Date Night. Come along with an open mind…

Text supplied by third party.
