The area
Address
Neighbourhood: New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district 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 squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

Did not feel safe and sub par drinks
May 2021 • Friends
After a promising start, bong asked to complete Track And Trace and having our temperature taken, we were quickly led into the land that COVID forgot. The music was extremely loud, meaning that we had to shout to be heard and most patrons were walking around without face coverings unchallenged by staff.

The drinks we ordered were tasteless and unfortunately we had to complain. It was a challenge to get a refund but eventually we achieved this and were able to find a safer environment. Appalling experience.

BOUNCERS ARE AWFUL
Mar 2020 • Friends
After a group of guys threatened me I ran to get friends with the guys following me resulting in the bouncer having me in a chokehold (a young girl) and only let go when I was nearly unconscious and my friend had to beg him to stop. Awful awful awful.

Got threatened by a pred and staff did nothing
Sep 2019 • Friends
“Don’t f*ck with me okay you should know you shouldn’t mess with me” - man in 30s after I wouldn’t kiss him( for a f*cking VK I mean come on man) staff did f*ck all when I tried to tell them he was threatening me. Just making all girls aware of Bourbons treatment of predatory behaviour.
Music was gash too.

Pretty Good
Jun 2019 • Friends
As clubs go this was a pretty standard night out. But the drinks were quite cheap and they had a good selection of shots which always makes a night more interesting. The staff were all friendly and helpful including the bouncers which were helping us get a taxi home. We went on a friday so it was free entry which was a bonus as i went home with money which never happens! I would go here again if i was in edinburgh.

21st
Feb 2019 • Friends
So I booked a table for 14 people for my 21st, we got in and everything was fine then they brought over the drink I had ordered with my package and spilt half of it, leaving our booth wet and sticky. They did replace the spilt drink but didn’t tidy up he mess from it properly.

We went about enjoying our night when a bouncer pulled my boyfriend to the side and tried to chuck him out, luckily he managed to stay, I then went over to the bouncer and said that if anyone from my party was chucked I’d be on to his manager as it’s a 21st what does he expect, to which he replied ‘any more of your f**king cheek and you’ll be out’ I ignored this comment and sat myself down.

Later on I noticed the same bouncer was grabbing my friend in quite a rough manner, so I placed my hand on his arm to ask him to stop and let go of her and he turned around and told me I was out. I asked for an explanation and valid reason as to why and he could not give me one, I was then manoeuvred in a way that they ended up putting me on the ground in front of the whole club, they were being really rough with me and have actually bruised under my arm!

When outside I asked for the CCTV footage to be reviewed to which I was informed that there is no camera facing the angle that I was moved to the floor at, which is complete crap as it was the main doorway on the main dance floor, so of course there would be footage of that.

They were also that rough with my brothers girlfriend that she ended up face down on the street, which they said was her own fault.

All in all I’m very disappointed, bouncers have to care or compassion for people and are in a complete power trip the whole time finding any excuse to kick people out. Definitely will not be back and have lodged a formal complaint with the manager.

Huge Disappointment
Jan 2019 • Family
Just over £22 on Hogmanay to get in even though it was definitely not filled to capacity. Also had the nerve to charge £10 for a double like it’s a classy establishment when it’s clearly not.

The music was not consistent went from cheese to something half decent. Also there may be three rooms but the same music plays in both of them.

Other well known clubs such as Lulu’s, Shanghai and Why not were cheaper to get in and talking to people outside sounds like it would have been a whole lot better.

Definitely wouldn’t go here again... it won’t be long until it closes down as it was just a pathetic excuse for a club !

A group booking
Dec 2018 • Friends
So been here twice and booked as a package , but very disappointed at the last vist . It was booked for 12 and the seating they gave up could only fit 8 and to then top it off , went to the toilet and the ladies toilets are stinking of fish . The sanitary bins were absolute stinking and needed emptied , it made me not go to the toilets the rest of the night . I did pass it on to a member on staff but another girl from the group went back in and it was not any better . I hope someone serious sorts it out .
