As you may already know, since we moved to our new home underneath George IV Bridge, the terms of our tenancy require us to vacate the premises for the summer months (Sunday 12th July; we reopen on Saturday 5th September this year), so The Underbelly can move in to use the space for the Fringe.
NB Without a venue, we’re unable to run any of our regular nights (or any Fringe events). We don’t have any control over this, nor do we have any involvement in what happens in the building during this period. The Underbelly is a completely separate business from The Bongo Club. It was here first and thus it takes precedence at this time. Sorry, folks, but ‘them’s the breaks’, to quote an old favourite by hip hop legend Kurtis Blow.
We’re fully back in action on Saturday 5th September and very much look forward to kicking off the new season with you then. Until then, enjoy the festivals and have a great summer!/span>
