THE MAIN ROOM
The main room is the beating heart of the club with a custom built and wirelessly controlled led "grid" lighting system, C02 jets in the roof and state of the art Void Sound System.
The main room also has a large central dancefloor with four large on looking VIP booths that can be reserved for birthdays and other special occasions. Booking a table ensures, queue jump and table service all night long.
There are also two large cocktail bars either side of the main room so its easy to grab a drink without having to wait in queues for too long.
The LED room is the first of its kind in Scotland and was initially installed at Why Not back in 2013.
The LED room comprises of 25 million pixels which run videos and graphics on both walls and the ceiling, offering an immersive experience unlike anything else anywhere in the country.
Our resident DJs play a mix of hip hop and rnb every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The room is open to everyone but guests can reserve tables in advance and enjoy queue jump and table service all night.
THE LED ROOM
The Vault is the perfect place for those VVIP celebrations in Edinburgh.
The Vault has a full Void Sound system, club lighting, two large luxurious party booths, a custom built Glass floor and its very own bar for speedy service which saves waiting in queues.
Inspired by our trips the Las Vegas and Los Angeles the Vault offers something you wont find anywhere else.
Our open air garden terrace is perfect for summer nights and drinks with friends but even when it rains our giant umbrellas cover the entire space so you won't get wet.
The garden has its very own cocktail bar and toilets which is a handy tip to know in case the main toilets inside are busy.
We play a mix of club classics, house and rnb in the garden with special guest appearances from various DJs and live performers from time to time.
