Car parking is free after 5:30pm and is generally available on Royal Terrace.

Royal Terrace is a one-sided street, (houses on one side only) which takes some pressure off car parking.

Also, don't be put off by all the "Residents Only" car parking. The rule is ... don't park in these bays while the meters are in operation but, after that, all spaces are up 'for grabs'!

Public transport

A lot of Lothian Buses services run not far away along Leith Street, Leith Walk and London Road.

Waverley railway station is less than a mile to the south west and about 10-15 minutes brisk walk while St Andrew Square bus station is just a little further away near-ish to Waverley.


Wheelchair access to the venue is relatively easy - three steps off the street on to the short approach 'runway' to the main door. 

There is a ramp to help negotiate these steps. After that it's straight run in (albeit with one small step at the main door). 

The room in which we run our gigs and the lobby bar are adjacent on the ground floor, so once you're in the building there are no more steps. There is a wheelchair accessible toilet also on the ground floor.
