The Burke & Hare will host a life drawing class

FOR years patrons of the Burke & Hare lap-dancing bar have been admiring the human form.

After all, the venue is one of the longest established in the heart of the Capital’s so-called ‘pubic triangle’ of strip clubs.

But now the customers can take their appreciation a step further - as the bar branches out into art lessons.

“Edinburgh’s famous Burke & Hare is opening its doors to host its very first life drawing class,” reads an online advert.

“Open to everyone, whether a complete beginner or a professional artist, we welcome every level.

“The class is untutored, all you need is a passion for art, making new friends or purely to have a bit of company.”

The bar will provide budding artists with basic supplies though encourage those taking part to bring their own equipment also.

Booked in for Tuesday, March 3, at 5.15pm - the class is priced £15 including a free drink with reservations available by contacting the club.

The cost also covers entry for the rest of the evening - so drawers can take in performances by dancers if they wish.

“This is entirely optional but after the class you may wish to sit back, relax and watch some of our spectacular pole shows throughout the evening,” continues the ad.
