Why Not was the first nightclub to open on Edinburgh's famous George Street in 1999 and has been responsible for some of the best nights out in the capital since. 

Over the years the club has played host to many talented performers, guest DJs and various famous faces who have chosen to spend their night out with us.  

Located below The Dome at 14 George Street in the heart of the city centre, Why Not features a large central dance floor with four overlooking luxurious party booths, state of the art sound / lighting, Scotland's only LED room, a Las Vegas Style Vault for private functions and a huge outdoor open air garden area. 

Since our major refurbishment in 2013 the club has won 11 national awards and is widely recognised as the best nightclub in Scotland.  Our four core nights Flare (Mondays), Love (Wednesdays), Filthy (Fridays) and Why Not Saturdays offer something for everyone from students (mid week) to visitors and young professionals at weekends and the club is also available for private hire for special events 

During the pandemic we made a number of changes and upgrades to the business.  Firstly, our outdoor area became the Rose Street Garden and we refurbished the indoor space within Why Not Nightclub to become the Secret Garden. We also introduced mobile ordering for food and drinks which we're keeping for our late night customers, this will dramatically reduce the wait time for drinks service on pre booked tables.
