Eurovision Song Contest is merging both British and Ukrainian cultures in Liverpool since the competition cannot be held in Ukraine due to the war. The final is already coming sooner than we realised on May 13, so might as well start making plans for the best Eurovision parties this year. So, to make things easier, we’ve gathered up a list of the best places to watch the Eurovision final in Edinburgh.
1. Everyman Cinema
Everyman Cinema at St James Quarter is hosting a Eurovision final live watch party in their cinema decked in comfy couches and armchairs. Visitors can enjoy an evening of comfortable Eurovision fun, all with surround sound and a massive screen to make things better. Tickets are £21.40 and include entry, a drink, snacks and a scorecard, letting the audience be the judges too. What is more, come dressed up in your best fancy dress and show off the best dance moves you’ve got.
2. The Three Sisters
As always, The Three Sisters bar will be broadcasting the big event on their giant screens. Starting at 7pm, the Eurovision Watch party will continue until 3am, featuring a performance from the ABBA tribute act VOYAGE. Guests can opt for various packages, such as single tickets with a cocktail, double tickets and a bottle of prosecco and four tickets with a cocktail tree.
3. Grassmarket Community Centre
Grassmarket Community Centre is organising a huge Eurovision party called The Big Boom Bang A Bang Eurovision Party, filled with European-inspired snacks, drag queens and plenty of fizz. The event is also going to be hosted by the CC Blooms native drag queen Tanya Windaes, who will be entertaining party goers all night. Tickets include entry, a glass of fizz on arrival, photo ops with Tanya herself, snacks, photo booth pictures and various games throughout the evening.
4. CC Blooms
Unsurprisingly, CC Blooms is throwing a Eurovision Party on Saturday, May 13, inviting guests to celebrate in their basement party space, LAB. The space can host up to 180 party goers, and the event will be first come first served, with no pre-booking required. The party starts at 7pm showing Eurovision at 8pm on a large projector screen, with the celebrations continuing into the night with plenty of dancing and DJs.
