Edinburgh residents have seen many nightclubs come and go over the years, but there are certain ones that they miss more than others. Edinburgh’s nightlife has changed a lot over the years and it got our readers sharing fond memories of their clubbing days.
We asked which nightclub they would bring back if they could and, with around 3,000 comments, it was definitely a talking point. Here are just 12 of the venues where residents would love to have one last dance.

Eros/Elite was another go-to place for clubbers in Edinburgh in the 2000s. Located in the Fountainbridge district, the club closed in 2004. Laura Goodall shared her memories of the club's different rooms and said nights there were "so good". Hilary McKelvie added that it had the "best nights". Photo: Contributed
Many readers gave a mention to The Cavendish nightclub at West Tollcross, which over the years has opened as many different clubs under different names, including Clouds which also received shout outs. In more recent years it was running as ATIK nightclub, which closed earlier this year after owners failed to secure a new lease. This photo shows a clubbing night at Cav in 1998.

4. Buster Brown's
Many readers said they missed Buster Brown's in Market Street which was also known as Electric Circus in later years. Many generations will remember flocking there on a night out and our readers described it as "one of the best". Pictured are dancers at Buster Brown's disco in Edinburgh, September 1979.
