Named after the founder of Edinburgh brewing firm William McEwan, this nineteenth century former civic hall dominates Bristo Square.

The McEwan Hall can seat 1,000 delegates in its tiered auditorium, making it one of Edinburgh First's larger conference venues. Our other venues nearby - including Appleton Tower, located less than five minutes' walk away - make ideal breakout spaces in which to continue your conference discussions.
