From board meetings, small exhibitions and product launches, cocktail events, private dinners and dinner dances, the suite is bathed in natural light and has a beautiful back drop of Calton Hill.

Should the weather be glorious, the lawn-facing doors can be opened to transform your event into a full al-fresco affair. Arrival drinks, scheduled comfort breaks or post event drinks can be hosted on our terrace, which offers water views of Firth of Forth.

Parties & Private Dining


Invite close friends and family members for an intimate private dinner in the heart of the Scottish capital or make it a late night by dancing the night away in our rooftop garden. Whatever you wish for, we can work with you to make it that extra bit special.

With space to accommodate a sit-down dinner, dancefloor and DJ, as well as our well-stocked bar, our experienced team can assist you with organising cakes, additional decorations, entertainment, photobooths and alike.

Due to our proximity to the historic Calton Hill, The Glasshouse license permits service of alcohol until 11pm Sunday-Thursday and Midnight Friday’s and Saturday’s. Should you wish to host an event Sunday-Thursday until midnight, an application can be submitted on your behalf. There is no charge for this submission, approval is subject to Edinburgh City Council.


Make the most of summer with a private barbecue on The Glasshouse’s rooftop garden — considered one of the best kept secrets in Edinburgh. A space unlike any other in the city, this relaxed environment belies its location, and is the perfect escape from the bustle of the city.

Our Barbecue service is an all-inclusive package, with offerings starting from £70 per person, which includes two drinks per person and a BBQ meal consisting of three main items and four accompaniments.
