511 is the definitive subterranean house music venue. Deep in the heart of Edinburgh, below the institution that is the Newsroom bar and eatery, 511 is a stealthy hybrid of intimate surroundings and on-par DJs from all over the UK.

With a ballsy sound system that has been used and abused by the likes of Motor City Drum Ensemble, Jimpster, Craig Smith & Phil Asher the venue has a lot to celebrate and anticipate. Music has and always will be the driving force behind 511, so expect big names in a small space for that secret after-party feel.

511 works with leading promoters and DJs to consistently bring quality music to the party people of Edinburgh , featuring the likes of 511 resident club nights Rendez-Vous, Souloco, Pay it All Back, Sounds of Soul, Etiket, XY and Awkward.

511 gives the feeling of a red lit basement, with ample sound and the best staff. Add the Burgh family into the mix and its a memorable night out - Phil Asher

511 is what most DJ's would consider a perfect small venue and I for one really loved playing there. Low ceiling, dim red lighting, cracking sound system, friendly and clued up crowd not to mention a Condesa mixer to play on! What more do you want? Hope to come back soon! - Jimpster​
