This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Walking Aid, Wheelchair, Powerchair

Overview

Great night out, but jam packed, and not a mask in sight! Great atmosphere and acoustics amazing Staff extremely helpful. A bit of a ledge at the accessible entrance, which caused problems trying to access with the power chair, but security helped us over it. An area set aside for wheelchair access , ( visibility not great)right in front of accessible loo, which caused problems for my companion, with people popping in and out . Accessible loo big and roomy, sadly red cord was tied up so high that even my able bodied ( and tall) companion could not reach it. Unfortunately I had changed handbags, and did not have a Euan’s guide red cord card with me

Transport & Parking

4

We had travelled up to Edinburgh by car, and had walked/ wheeled from our accommodation to the venue. Venue in the Old Town, there was a large carpark nearby, and observed plenty of wheelchair taxis passing

Access

4.5

As mentioned quite a big ledge at accessible entrance . Security helped us manoeuvre the power chair over it for us, and cleared the way for us to access the wheelchair accessible area. Building seems to be on 2 floors, but was so busy it was difficult to see

Toilets

3

We were sat right outside it, so easy for us to find, but although there was a sign, it was difficult to see in the dark atmosphere. The pub/ music bar was jam packed, so I would imagine this would make access difficult for other users Toilet large with plenty of grab rails, not the cleanest I have seen, but it was being frequently used. Badly let down by the red cord and it’s handle being tied up all the way to the ceiling

Staff

5

Everybody was helpful, and welcoming, but the security staff in particular went out of their way to assist us

Anything else you wish to tell us?

To be frank I think the crowd had thrown COVID precautions to the wind, which made me very anxious. If you want to reduce contact with people, then I wouldn’t recommend it. However the atmosphere was fantastic, so maybe once COVID numbers are down, I would definitely visit
