The Stand Comedy Club

The great news: though their name suggests otherwise, they have chairs and tables, as well as standing room.

Getting here is easy, it’s just a ten-minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley station. Getting a seat could be a little trickier as there’s no reserved seating. So get here early when a popular act is playing. All is not lost though; the standing area is handy for the bar.

They serve food from 7pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. If you’re planning to visit on another evening, best to get something to eat beforehand – there’s plenty nearby to choose from.
