Review of SWITCH Presents: 2021 Freshers Launch Party

Overall rating: 5 Verified review

Everything was great except the insanely long queue and the way the bouncers handled the queue. They were sending the wrong people to the back of the line and having a ticket didn’t get you in any faster. But when you got in ???

Whynot Nightclub venue information

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.
