The Edinburgh nightclub is one of the district’s liveliest independent music venues, famous for its compact size and longstanding presence in the Scottish capital. Named after the American slang for hiding spirits in brown paper bags to elude police, Sneaky Pete’s offers clubbers a grimy yet edgy ambience having acquired a status of being an ‘underground’ venue. Furthermore, the site was formerly called Sneaky Pete’s throughout the 70s, and was adopted once again in 2009 due to its connection with the community. Nowadays, Sneaky Pete’s is generally full to its max capacity of 100, hosting live shows and club nights every night of the week. The venue remains an authentic place to watch live music, free from stages and posing a more intimate environment. Its regular nights include Hector’s House and Firecracker Recordings, dishing out house, electronics and techno, the eclectic Teesh with DJ Cheers spinning out everything from soul, funk, house, hiphop and more, and Ride, delighting fans of 90s hip hop and R’n’B. Proud to be recognised as a ‘dive bar’, Sneaky Pete’s continues to entertain and soundly serve its locals.
