For rock!

Opium alternative rock bar Edinburgh was Created in the summer of 1990 to offer Edinburgh’s disassociated and disenfranchised a f*** you to the world, Opium became the capitals first dedicated venue for growling vocals, apathetic angry lyrics, distorted guitar riffs, emphatic beats and overall loudness.

Our ethos – often imitated but never equaled, is: We don’t do pop, We don’t do R’n’B, and if you want to listen to house music….. this isn’t the place for you!

Opium remains the epicenter of rocks subculture in the city and is still Edinburgh’s only dedicated 24/7 rock club. Open from 8 till late 7 nights a week with free entry every night
