A New Chapter in Edinburgh’s Music Scene

It's Curtain Call at Brewhemia

It was a sad day for music lovers in Edinburgh when The Jazz Bar, a beloved local venue, announced its closure. Known for its intimate setting and eclectic line-up of artists, The Jazz Bar had been a cornerstone of the city’s music scene for years. Its closure left a void in the hearts of many, and more importantly, left local artists without a stage to perform their music.

However, as one door closes, another opens. Brewhemia, Scotland’s only Beer Palace, has stepped up to fill the gap left by The Jazz Bar. Recognising the need for a new venue for local artists, Brewhemia has opened its doors to the talented musicians of Edinburgh.

A New Home for Local Artists

Brewhemia is not just offering a stage; it’s providing a home for local artists. The venue’s unique atmosphere, combined with its commitment to showcasing local talent, makes it the perfect place for musicians to play their gigs. Artists who once graced the stage at The Jazz Bar can now continue to share their music with the community at Brewhemia.

A New Entertainment Rota

Brewhemia's own Carrie Beattie, the Entertainment Director, and Events Team at Brewhemia have worked tirelessly to coordinate a new entertainment rota. This new schedule offers live entertainment seven days a week, ensuring that there is always something exciting happening in the Beer Palace.

What to expect:

  • Neumusik Monday: Big bands and big talent. Neumusik Monday boasts a variable line-up of top-class pro players, who travel in from around Scotland to participate in this outstanding gig.

  • Brew&Blues Tuesday: an Open Stage 'Jazz Jam', where our new Haus Trio will back all kinds of surprise guests dropping in to play. If musicians want to get involved, they are encouraged to arrive at the venue with their instruments and ask for a spot on that evening's list of guest players.

  • Musikhalle: a variety of live music showcasing local, national and international talent.

  • Howl @ The Moon: every Thursday night in the Beer Palace, watch the piano maestros go head-to-head in an exhilarating clash of keys, straight from the roaring ragtime joints of 1920s Chicago. The best part? They take requests!

  • Kabaret: A night full of curated Kabaret for the senses, where every Friday, the city's pulse is set to a symphony of taste, sound and revelry. Immersive melodies fuse and rhythms rise, ensuring your spirit dances 'til dawn.

  • Saturday Shindigs: When the sun goes down, the stars come out - we're talking dancing on tables, promenading entertainers, live music and performances to get you up on your feet.

  • Sunday Service: Wind down the week with our soothing and serene Sundays, complete with our sensational Rabbie's Roast, the Bloody Mary Cart and live music beginning at 1:30pm.

The Future of Music at Brewhemia

The closure of The Jazz Bar marked the end of an era, but the rise of Brewhemia signals the beginning of a new one. With its commitment to supporting local artists and providing a vibrant venue for live entertainment, Brewhemia is set to become a new beacon in Edinburgh’s music scene.

As we bid farewell to The Jazz Bar, we also look forward to the future. A future filled with the sound of music echoing through the halls of Brewhemia, as local artists take to the stage and continue to make Edinburgh a city known for its vibrant music scene.

Each night offers something new - you won't want to miss it!
