The venue is split across 2 floors with bars on both levels. Providing a stage with full integrated PA system on the upper floor that hosts both local and touring talent.
The ground floor provides an ample bar area, separate seating area split from the main room and a hidden nook through the back of the venue.
Opium remains the epicentre of rocks subculture in the city and is still Edinburgh’s only dedicated 24/7 rock club. Open from 8 till late 7 nights a week with free entry every night.
