This is the first time I have been to this small but intimate venue. The building was an old church which has been refurbished at one time and it still has what looks like the original seating. One of the few problems with viewing was...More

Went to see Robert Cray there recently. Very intimate venue of 900 maximum and the acoustics are very good. Really enjoyed the evening. The Hall does have a bar and the staff are helpful and friendly.

We came to see the Fun Lovin Criminals earlier this month. Great little venue, intimate and fun. When the lights are on its very late Victorian and sweetly subdued. I was concerned that the vibe wouldn't be right for this gig......i was wrong. It was...More

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
