A small venue tucked away in Hastie’s Close off Cowgate, La Belle was once one of the city’s most popular music venues – having played host to the likes of Oasis and the Libertines to name just a couple. It was then sadly destroyed in 2002 in the Cowgate fire but has since made a triumphant return, finding a new home underneath a large city hotel. Buried underground means it still retains its former years’ intimate feel and, with a capacity of around 600, means it is the perfect venue for true music lovers to get up close and personal with their favourite artists.

Opening up just in time for the Nightvision series, we’re really excited to see many great artists return to the venue and with your help, we aim to help quickly restore it to it’s former days’ glory, providing world class performances in an up-close-and-personal setting.
