Project Description


The Merchants’ Hall is the head-quarters of one of Edinburgh’s oldest and most prestigious business organisations – The Company of Merchants of the City of Edinburgh – and until recently it was used exclusively by their Members. This beautiful A-listed building is now available to hire for any occasion from weddings and dances to product launches and press conferences.

The Hall, with its magnificent domed ceiling, is ideal for larger events.  It can seat a maximum of 150 in a Theatre Style, 150 for dinner or 80 Cabaret Style.

The mahogany-panelled Court Room is an elegant area for smaller meetings, dinners and drinks receptions with portraits by Raeburn and Ramsay adorning the rich crimson walls.
