Unusual Venues of Edinburgh - The Caves


The Caves is an intimate and atmospheric cavernous venue nestled in the depths of the 18th century South Bridge in the heart of the Old Town, and a stone’s throw from the famous Royal Mile.

The Caves is steeped in colourful history, and every vaulted room that has been sympathetically restored to its former glory has a story to tell and a special place in Scotland’s past. From a former stables to the French Cavalry who were body guards for the Royal Family, the rumoured hunting ground of Burke and Hare, to the spiritual home of the Oyster Club of the Scottish Enlightenment.

There is no venue more Edinburgh than The Caves, or more Scottish either if you consider there was once so much Whisky stored here that it became known as “Whisky Row.”

The information on the above venue is provided only for location purposes.
