I went to the DJ premo night a few months ago what a great night full of hash heads but it was a good atmosphere makes a change from all the teeny pill poppas in clubs.

The bongo is a great venue. I've been going ther for a few years now and it's never a letdown, always great sounds, people and fun. not a shirt or skirt in sight!!! I hope when they move to Moray House they will not loose any of the atmosphere of character that they have managed to build up over the years in New Street.

crumby, damp,well worn place with the smallest toilet in scotland. the people that go are usually a cool bunch. this makes up for the high door charge. music variable from excellent to utter rubbish.

The Bongo is wicked. Messanger Sound System nights are bass laden and dread-lock emblazoned beautiful ladies. Theres a welcoming smell in the air, cheap beers and dub sounds. Mid-week they put on a variety of stuff - look out for their Spoken word nights.

I'm from London & have been to this club twice in the past year & both nights were excellent. The place has character & the music policy is eclectic with friendly door & bar staff. Great place. not 4 squares.

Down market place with an alternative music policy. The only reason to go is if the music appeals, it is overpriced, badly decorated and cramped with a tiny bar and an always full cloakroom. Populated, amongst others, by dope-smoking studenty types and people who don't mind queueing for 30mins on a staircase to gain entry to a grebby pit.

The bar prices are reasonable.

This is by far the best venue for more underground music in Edinburgh. Since it moved to bigger premises a couple of years ago it now has a great dancefloor, proper bar and decent loos.
Best nights there are Headspin for funk, hiphop and house, Messenger for reggae and Fast for punk.
Give it a shot.
