A group for anyone looking to meet new people while having a drink or doing something a little bit cultured. We hold a mixture of events from pub crawls to arts and music events, and also love exploring new places in and around Edinburgh. So whether you're new to the city and looking to discover what it has to offer or a longterm local wanting to share your favourite haunts, come along and join us!
Membership of the group is £3 a year. This goes towards the fees Meetup charges me to run the group (over £280 a year). Please send this when joining by PayPal to Sarah.email@example.com and select "friends and family" when asked for type of payment. Let me know if you don't have Paypal and we can arrange for you to pay this another way. Thanks in advance!
Every year, Cocktails and Culture takes a break from our usual pub crawls and instead tours a selection of cultural establishments for free during the Doors Open weekend. Our "culture crawl" takes us to venues ranging from historic buildings to arts and music spaces.
This year, we've decided to venture further afield and visit Glasgow which offers a whole week of Doors Open activities. The plan is to get the train from Edinburgh to Glasgow in the morning on Saturday 21st September and, similar to previous culture crawls, we will visit a selection of the open venues then go for drinks afterwards. As our assistant organiser Pafs describes it: "we get drunk on culture then we get drunk on booze".
I'll work out a route from all the venues in the brochure and post it on here nearer the time.
