Your brand new cellar venue, hidden in the heart of Leith is now open to all music lovers.

Established in 2015, Bar Brig is a beautiful venue situated in the heart of Leith. We specialise in lavish cocktails and a selection of Scotland’s most popular craft beers alongside a fantastic selection of whisky, spirits and wines to tempt a variety of tastebuds. We serve food through the week and provide the tools to cook your own steak at your table with our hot 'Lava Stones'!


Have a look at some of our menus below. As we are only a small bar, booking is recommended to ensure you get a seat!

Why not make a night of it and check What's On in Brig Below and catch one of the 11+ bands and musicians we have playing throughout the week.

How it works for you

The venue is yours for FREE, you decide your ticket price and you keep all the door profits. We are not interested in making money from the door, we just want the venue to be as full as possible and we are happy making our money over the bar. Please note that our PA system and sound engineer comes at a £55 charge which covers the engineer soundchecking from 6.30pm and finishing the show at 11.30 (our curfew for live music). If you require an earlier soundcheck etc it’s £10 per additional hour for the engineer. We can supply a cash float, and if you require, a door person for you at a cost of £7.50 per hour, please give advanced notice if this is required. There will be an additional charge of £50 if you cancel your booking during the 5 weeks leading up to your event.
