Club chain launches Edinburgh venue

Jongleurs has officially announced the opening of its new comedy club in Edinburgh - just in time for the Fringe.

The new club is part of the £3million Omni development in Leith Street, which will also include an Australian themed Walkabout pub.

Opening on July 24, the venue boasts two air-conditioned comedy rooms - one with 300 seats, the other with 100.

Simon Kaye, Commercial Director for Jongleurs owners Regent Inns, said: "We are very excited about the new Jongleurs, in Scotland's thriving capital city, bringing our unique brand of night out to the burgeoning success of the Fringe."

This is Jongleurs' 16th club in the UK and second in Scotland. The first opened in Battersea, south London, in 1983.

Jongleurs brand manager Jon Fish said: "Jongleurs have been hugely successful all around the UK. Our brand new club will host some of the most exciting nights out during the festival and throughout the year.'

Those performing Edinburgh shows at the new venue include Lenny Beige creator Steve Furst, Rudi Lickwood and Mark Walker.
