Monkey Barrel Comedy is situated in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. Our rooms are located at the top end of Blair Street, just off the Royal Mile and can be easily accessed by Bus and Taxi from South Bridge or by foot from either Cowgate or the High Street.
As with many venues in the traditional and historical Old Town, some of our spaces have accessibility limitations. Please contact us in advance (via email to our Box Office at email@example.com) if you have any access requirements, so we can advise on the options available.
MB1 is at ground level and can be accessed via most wheelchairs with some adjustments made for you outside the venue. Please let us know in advance of buying a ticket (via the Box Office) so we can confirm and be prepared for your arrival. Because of the physical changes required outside of the venue, we cannot guarantee entry unless we are notified in advance.
MB3 and MB4 are accessed via a series of steps. If you are able to move over short distances, our team can assist and looking after any mobility equipment.
If the room for the event isn't listed, then it may not yet have been confirmed. If you have any questions on this, or anything else, please contact our Box Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
