La Belle Angèle is one of Edinburgh's best-loved live music and club venues. Renowned for pulling in big names, such as Oasis and Radiohead over the years, in 2002, a fire started by a faulty fuse box burnt the venue to the ground. However, 12 years after the fire, in 2014, the restoration began, and the venue is now fully functioning again.

Located on the Cowgate, La Belle Angèle is well served by a number of Lothian buses passing by South Bridge. The venue is about 10-15 minutes from Waverley Train Station by foot.

Hey,
I was going to order a ticket to Gorgon City this Friday, however, I am only 17 so was wondering if ID was required at the door?
Would i get in or do you need to be 18?

I look forward to your reply,

Freya
