Last time I was here was 6 or so years ago. Opal used to be a smart lounge club & Edinburgh's premiere club, which you could compare to what most people would call an upper class club on the King's road or elsewhere in London....More

We booked a table the average spend was not cheap but we walked out after really bad customer service. Rude staff they just did not care. Will not go back and I'd suggest no one else dose

Went for a friends 21st birthday party last night (Saturday 28/8/16) and the toilets were loaded with flies. Drinks are overpriced. Also tried to submit this review on their Facebook page and they deleted the comment and also blocked me.

Definitely the worst nightclub in edinburgh. Very overpriced drinks considering its the standard cheap vodka. Tries to pass itself as a luxury club and fails miserably. the djs are not the best.

We had exclusive use of part of the bar, which was great, although the ceilings were a bit low for some of my guests, so they didn't use it. Great choice of rooms with different music. Good service. Bonus: I lost my phone, and someone...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to

with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
