The Hub is an old church building, with a towering, gothic spire, near the top of the High Street, just down from Edinburgh Castle.

 The Hub is the main ticket centre for many of Edinburgh's arts and entertainment events and festivals, such as the Edinburgh International Festival and Edinburgh's Hogmanay.

The church building, which was originally used by the Church of Scotland as a parish church and for meetings by the General Assembly of Scotland, now houses a cafe/restaurant and performance spaces inside.

The Main Hall has a capacity of 420, with two smaller venues, the Glass Room and the Dunard Library.
