Our  Story

Planet Bar is Edinburgh’s longest running gay bar. Planet is renowned for its friendly crowd, fun staff, low-price premium drinks and daily entertainment. After Covid restrictions have lifted further, you will be able to book the side bar or a booth for events and parties.

DJs ramp it up every night of the week, including Drag DJs on Thursdays and Sundays.

Showtime Fridays bring you amazing local and international Drag Queens (every week in pre-Covid times). Past line-ups have included winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK 2019, The Vivienne, and finalist Baga Chipz. Karaoke is every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. We also host retro nights on Mondays, and Bingo on Thursdays. Check out our Home Page or social media for the very latest events.

Planet Bar is know in Edinburgh for its involvement in local LGBT issues and campaigns. We hold events for World Aids Day and a number of charities.

We are proud sponsors of the Hot Scots, Scotland’s first LGBT football team. The Hot Scots compete in the GFSN National League and Cup, as well as local and international tournaments. They would love to hear from anyone who would like to take part.

As for us, here at Planet, we hope to see you in the bar soon!
