Edinburgh is a very cosmopolitan city with lots of students coming from around the world to study English in the wonderful Scottish capital. Going out to enjoy Edinburgh’s great nightlife is the perfect opportunity to practice your new language skills. Boteco Do Brasil is a bar, restaurant and night club where all the cultures of Edinburgh come together to enjoy some great music from around the world.

There is only one rule… have fun! You’ll have also the chance to meet local Scottish people who want to experience the Latin atmosphere, practice salsa (every Thursday)!, enjoy live music on Fridays or just enjoy some delicious cocktails.

It is without a doubt one of our favourite venues in Edinburgh!

Highly recommended!
