Karaoke, comedy or clubbing - however you want to celebrate the lead up to the big day, do it in style look through our Edinburgh hen night ideas!
Where to begin?! Edinburgh's nightlife is as hectic as its daytime, so you won't be short of entertainment, but it's also massive, so knowing exactly where to start can be a bit daunting for visitors. There are plenty of famous traditional pubs around the Grassmarket area, as well as some of the trendier, more upmarket clubs. From smaller, intimate venues to the huger super clubs, to your tried and tested chain clubs there's plenty of places for you to find your groove. Around the George IV Bridge you'll find some more laid back, cool cocktail lounges, which are great for getting the party started before you head to nearby Cowgate, a street lined with many of Edinburgh's hottest nightclubs. George Street is full of trendy, upmarket clubs, offering a diverse range of tunes to suit most musical tastes, and with some of the coolest and most fashionable bars in Scotland. Wherever you go, you'll want to remember to ask GoHen for guest list nightclubbing unless you actually want to spend ages queuing in your heels in the dismal Scottish weather, of course.
The bars in Edinburgh are second to none, and you'll find the widest variety of watering holes in all of Scotland here. That said, you and the girls can head out for a drink and a dance any weekend your hen night in Edinburgh should be a little more special than that.
