'Join us at the Cornerhouse for live music, comedy, a weekly quiz night and special one-off events'
We host a variety of music acts on Thursdays (9pm), Fridays & Saturdays (9:30pm) with an emphasis on the blues, folk, Americana, country, bluegrass, soul, funk, indie & pop.
Gigs are free unless otherwise stated. Arrive early if you want a seat.
If you’d like to play at The Cornerhouse, please send links to your music in a private message to our Facebook page or by email.
Reserve a table in the main bar
'We are happy to take table bookings, perhaps if you want to guarantee a view of the band or seats for food. We can also reserve larger areas in the main bar for small gatherings'
Cornerhouse Quiz & Comedy Nights
Join in with the weekly Cornerhouse quiz, every Sunday from 8:30pm, for loads of fun in a friendly, inclusive environment. First prize is a generous food platter & bottle of wine. No one goes home empty handed though! £1 entry.
Our occasional Comedy Sessions host diverse acts ranging from the up & coming, to headliners off the telly & radio (Justin Moorhouse, Alun Cochrane, Maisie Adam).
We also have special one-off gigs, usually previews of Edinburgh Fringe material, so keep an eye on our diary.
Book early to avoid disappointment.
