On the dancefloor in Edinburgh

You’re in for a wild and varied mix if you choose to chew the Bubblegum on Saturdays. Since the The Hive tries to appeal to as many people as possible, you’re likely to meet both heavily made-up girls in short skirts and high heels and more alternative-styled folks. An open-minded attitude is therefore necessary. You can go mental to the usual floor-fillers and as soon as they play that tune that you’ve just heard too many times, you can head over to the second dance-floor and rock out to your favourite indie song. The atmosphere in these spacious underground vaults is perfect for party-people from 18 to 22. 11:00-3:00am – free entry before 11:30.

Go through the dirtiest, darkest and shadiest underground passage of Edinburgh. Don’t let yourself be put off by the smell of you-don’t-want-to-know-what. Follow the narrow back-alley, turn right and climb a couple of steep steps. Et voilà, you made it – A bright sign tells you your destination: the grv. Unlike the ugly path you had to pass, the small club you’re about to enter seems very clean with its light-coloured wood and the stoney walls. You may order a beer, have a seat and ponder about the reason why someone put so many things as peculiar as a sewing machine or the little dog from “Toy Story” into the cupboard behind the bar – or you can discover unknown, young bands just before their breakthrough!

Pub crawl: If you have ever dreamed of getting to know as many pubs of Edinburgh as possible – and you just have one day to do so – you need to go on a so-called pub crawl, one of the most popular evening activities of Edinburgh.

In general, it seems that a Scotsman somehow feels the need to get drunk pretty fast and early. This is due to the fact that pubs mainly close pretty early, which means around 1 am. Consequently, pubs are already full and crowded around 7 pm. While wandering through the crowded streets full of bag-carrying customers in haste time seems more precious because of shops closing their doors at 6 pm. Time travelling begins when passing extrovert, young, fancy-clothed students and when short skirted, highheels wearing, laughing girls cross your way – ready to party. For some tourists this might be a pretty new and unusual experience – but don´t worry – although it might seem like it is already somewhat after 11 pm your watch truly is set at the right time, and it really is just 7 pm, and yes: these loud, eccentric, joking and laughing drunken people ARE definitely drunk. Lucky the one who gets to know the Scotsmen on a Friday! This is the day to observe suited Businessmen drinking lots of pints of beer during their lunch break with the purpose to get drunk in order to be prepared for the evening. The purpose of a pub crawl – next to getting drunk – is to spend the night in as many pubs as possible. Unsurprisingly, each pub has its own flair and its own party-attendees so that you see and (if you want to) talk to a big variety of younger as well as older people partying, all of them in a good mood and willing to share a drink with you. There are crowded and busy pubs as well as more chilling and cosy pubs. Traditional, old-fashioned as well as modern and plain pubs. Smaller as well as bigger ones – younger as well as older ones – loud as well as calmer ones. Moreover, there are the ones which are more trendy and the ones which are rather alternative. There are the ones which offer live music (whether it is Jazz, Rock, Indie or Folk) and there are the ones with a Jukebox, a DJ or a CD. And last but not least there are the ones with Karaoke (mostly on Friday night e.g. Rose Street, Waterloo Place)! You see – all in all it is pretty unlikely for anybody to get bored while being on a pub crawl in Edinburgh. However, sometimes it indeed happens that one of the group members is not satisfied with the choice of current pub and therefore wants to move on. In this case this person should be tolerant and fair enough to wait until the group moves on, which will happen – depending on how fast the group drinks their beer or whisky – quite soon. Keep in mind that there are tons of other pubs waiting to be explored by you!I
