"Club and gig venue" Cowgate Tip by Pixiekatten

Cowgate, Edinburgh: 14 reviews and 15 photos

This is a great venue for gigs. When a club is on its always great fun but only one disadvantage. It gets hot. You get inside and within 10minutes you're dripping sweat. Its almost dripping from the ceilings and the stone cavelike walls. Good thing the barstaff is always ready to serve you a nicely priced promo drink or beer.

Music varies. Techno. House. Electro. Drum and bass.
Free entry some nights or before a ceratin time. Otherwise £2-10... depending on club and day
Check local paper for information and updates.
