In June 1994 CC Blooms opened its doors to the fast growing Edinburgh gay scene. Over the passing years it grew from strength to strength, proving itself to be one of the most popular gay clubs in Scotland.
In May 2008 the club was taken over by an ambitious couple, Mitch and Tim; who, having owned a successful local country pub, were lured back to the bright lights of the city when they noticed CC Blooms was up for sale. Having been frequent visitors to CC’s in previous years, Mitch and Tim knew the direction they wanted to take the club whilst still keeping the atmosphere everyone knew and loved.
CC Blooms has since had 2 major refurbishments. One in 2011 on the upper level and the second in July 2015 in the basement level now known as ‘the lab’
CC Blooms is a restaurant, bar and club with a whole lot to offer. By day CC's offers diners a wide range of food and drinks from Burgers, salads and tapas, craft beer and ciders, quality branded spirits, tasty wines and all of your favourite cocktails. At night, the place transforms into one of Edinburgh’s best hangouts. Spread over two levels and featuring regular events, CC Blooms offers a space to let loose and have an amazing night.
The Lab - CC blooms basement bar. After a refurbishment in 2015 is now a stunning multi-use function room hosting a wide range of functions from business meetings and conferences, birthday parties, charity events and their first wedding in May 2016.
CC Blooms may be Edinburgh's oldest gay venue. However, times have changed since we opened in 1994 and our bar welcomes everyone.
