‘A really great place to see any concert or event. Not too large so you are never that far from the stage. Staff extremely helpful and courteous. Also in a great area with lots of pre-concert menus.’

Playhouse Myths and Legends
Did you know, Edinburgh Playhouse has its own resident ghost? Albert, the spirit of a past stagehand wearing a grey coat is said to occasionally appear on level six. Staff have reportedly heard jangling keys, footsteps and slamming doors and have felt a chill in the air, while working in the supposedly empty theatre. But don’t be afraid, Albert is known to be a friendly ghost. The bar in the foyer, Albert’s Bar, is even named after him!
