The Dreamcatcher Club (Not in Fringe programme)

Drams None required. The best
Venue Nicol Edwards Pub, (unlisted in programme).
Address Niddrie Street, off the Cowgate or Royal Mile.
Reviewer Rez Guthrie

Drawing on the combined talents and solidarity of 'a bunch of people who've been partying together for four years', Green Monkey reinvent the club with passion and panache. Sick of the same old clubs, where they stick you all in one big dirty room and you pay through the nose to see a 'name' DJ? Rather be exploring a huge medieval vault with ivy, flowers, cheery U.V. decorations and there's an open drum jam in one room, a DJ in the next two, and in the basement there's a band accompanied by a whole room full of people doing a traditional song, (in African), inviting everyone's ancestors to the party. You can wander about, have a dance, get a massage, your face painted, there are even stalls to tempt the late night shopaholic. Or just kick back with a big pitcher of bevvy. There are three seperate bars and the staff are quick and helpful.

This is a compact maze of different party rooms, so just forget you're in a pub in the wild auld heart of Edinburgh. The DJs change throughout the night, so expect some variation, though not in quality. The night builds and it does get lively and sweaty, but sufficent bits of the place still retain air movement. Respect for others is expected, appriecated, and recieved. Homophobia, sexism or racism is not tolerated, and you don't see scary drunken adolecents or people getting ridiculously intoxicated here, either. Entrance £5, (£3 members). You can get a pint for £1.50, Membership for£2, and the lucky dip is just £1. Proceeds go to Amnesty International . The next Dreamcatcher is on the 24th Aug. Lucky Edinburgh punters can look forward to it every month, hopefully every week soon. Also check Nicol Edwards out both as a pub and for its other events.
