Probably the best club in Edinburgh musicwise - to me at least... Still a bit shy to play varied and new stuff, but they're a nice and interesting bunch of people, and they surely have good intentions. :)

Should have posted this before but Ascension can now be found at Teviot Student Union, Bristo Square, Edinburgh. But you all knew that anyway!

Some good news and some bad news:- Bad News: no Ascension now till October. Booo!!!! Good news: when it comes back, it's going to be fortnightly instead of monthly. Wahey and hallelujah!!! Keep an eye on the website listed above, the Events section here, Scotgoth or Nightnews mailing lists for more details.

Without a doubt the best club in Edinburgh overall. The crowd are lovely and always impeccably dressed and the music generally caters for all tastes- I'm certainly kept dancing 'like a maniac' anyway! In my opinion at its best when held in either Marcos or the Debating Hall of Teviot, but always an enjoyable night regardless.

I came here a couple of years ago when I was on holiday in Edinburgh. It was one of the best goth clubs I have ever been to. I have never met so many friendly goths under one roof! The music was great, the atmosphere was electric and everyone was dressed to kill! I got lost a couple of times going to the bathroom and the dance floor got absolutely packed but it was all part of the enjoyment! I would highly recommend this club to anyone who is looking for a good goth night in Edinburgh!
