Edinburgh On New Year's Eve

Hello to the group! I am coming on Edinburgh on New Year's Eve but unfortunately our AirBnB cancelled on us and have nowhere to stay..

Are pubs or any warm places open after after midnight until around 6? Or what time do they close? Honestly, whichever warm place would be fine :)) Thanks a lot in advance!

Well Pubs can only stay open until 3am, that’s the ones with late Licences, and they are not 10 a Penny! So most will be closed/close at the Bells!

Station will be Closed!

McDonalds possibly? Again, will they even be Open?

Casino?

Most pubs will close around 1pm or as the above post says some may have a late license till 3pm at the very latest. Those bars or clubs you are likely to need to have bought a ticket for in advance. Stations will be closed and given on a regular weekend you can find a queue out the door at McDonalds I wouldnt bank on being able to get in there easily.

1am or 3am I think post#2 means!

McDonalds on Princes Street is usually open 24 hours although they may reduce those hours over New Year and I'm sure there was something on the news about these hours being revoked in the near future. https:/…restaurant-locator.html

Where are you travelling from? Was the plan just to stay over the one night?

There will be a number of free buses runing around Edinburgh and area till about 4am starting about 1am that you could climb aboard and just sit it out. Beware of any PM's offering accomadation. You could be leaving yourself open to unwanted attention or worse.
