We all love our famous artists and their sell-out gigs. However, every musician out there had to start out somewhere and put themselves on the radar to make it big. A brand new live music late-night venue, Freddy’s has opened its doors on October 20, making it the perfect place for connecting over music.
Located on Fredrick Street, Freddy’s has a focus on up-and-coming artists, bands, DJs and performers, while also providing a trendy spot for catch-ups, social gatherings and so much more. The tasteful venue elevates nights out, combining live music with signature cocktails, and world-class beers that is set to become the city’s premier new establishment.
Whether it’s a wee catch-up or a bigger social gathering, Freddy’s is open seven days a week until 3am ready to welcome anyone and everyone.
General Manager Gavin Currie says: “Since the pandemic, a growing number of people are looking for something more than the traditional nightclub experience,” he explained. “They’re looking for a venue that offers live music from local artists, an extensive cocktail selection, cool interiors and a welcoming vibe that’s inclusive of everyone, regardless of age.
“Without the necessary investment and a willingness to evolve with changing trends, our nightlife will lie at a standstill – we want to change that with Freddy’s. We’ve worked with a range of amazing local businesses to curate an incredible cocktail menu – including new favourites and classic serves – and premium draught and bottled beer options, so our drinks offering is up there with the best of the best.”
“We know that Edinburgh’s licensed trade can get back to the vibrant landscape it was 10 years ago, and we want to be part of that.”
Inspired by late-night venues from around the globe, Freddy’s interior was designed in collaboration with ARKA Design Studio and the creatives at Too Gallus, with no expense spared on lighting and sound. Contemporary, warm and welcoming with moody lighting, exposed brick and cosy corners, the venue provides the perfect setting for everyone to enjoy.
