For the more
The Bongo Club1
Why locals love it
This popular venue has been around since '96 and now moved to the U'belly. Streching over two floors Bongo has consistently offered a haven for different kinds of genres from rock to hip-hop, jungle, electronic and house. Nowadays the club attracts a more varied group of uni students, but there is still a healthy amount of regulars attending.
Why you should visit it
This venue is definitely more for the young(-at-heart), but depending on your tastes you might find exactly the genre you like, unlike in other mainstream clubs. Drinks are cheap and on a good night can be crowded with Edinburgh students!
known as the 'underground freakshow', where ‘the weird is normal’, Confusion is Sex is at Bongo every second Friday of the month
