One of Edinburgh’s largest multi-purpose event spaces, the spectacular Assembly Rooms on George Street has welcomed both monarchy and celebrity royalty through its doors for over two hundred years.

Today the iconic building provides flexible spaces that can cater for events from small meetings to grand gala dinners. The Music Hall and Ballroom are the largest and most dramatic spaces, with capacity for up to 788 and 400 respectively.  A further nine rooms, catering from 10 boardroom style to receptions for 120 in the Under Balcony Bar are also available. From the contemporary and welcoming reception area, a grand double staircase sweeps up to four opulent rooms on the first floor with a large internal lift for increased accessibility.

With everything from modular staging to creative lighting effects, the large unbroken spaces provide a stunning blank canvas on which the most creative of imaginations can really run free. A truly unique historic venue, Assembly Rooms is perfect for any occasion, from conferences, dinners and performances to exhibitions, seminars and weddings. Natural daylight is complemented by magnificent chandeliers on lofty ceilings, with shining gold leaf detail highlighting the building’s period features.  Modern services - including climate control, WiFi throughout, and ‘plug and play’ sound systems - have been discreetly incorporated, preserving the authenticity of the Georgian surroundings.
