Edinburgh Press Club History

The Edinburgh Press Club is a coffee bar with a difference. The building is steeped in history dating back to the 1800s when it was purpose-built as an office and printing works for ‘The Scotsman’ newspaper. Advertising and publishing offices were situated on the ground floor and this is where the Edinburgh Press Club is located today.
