The Voodoo Rooms
Time Out says
Smartly turned-out bar and nightspot that hosts low-key gigs, cabaret and burlesque classes
Seemingly intent on being all things to all people, the Voodoo Rooms does a good job of pulling the trick off in grandiose circumstances. With a main bar that sits along one wall of a long dining room illuminated by high-arched Victorian windows, the black and gold colour scheme on the walls and elaborate cornicing give the place an air of exclusivity, which it thankfully doesn’t enforce. Instead it’s a friendly and welcoming first floor bar, restaurant and hangout that you might want to dress up ever so slightly for, with its quiet side-street location, mere seconds from Princes Street and Haymarket Station a definite advantage.
The Voodoo Rooms also contains two internal concert spaces, both fairly compact and informal interior rooms that don’t echo the style of the rest of the joint, and their live programming is eclectic. Gigs aside, the venue also hosts burlesque classes and raucous cabaret shows.
