Encore, Edinburgh

The late-night speakeasy spot located within the Parisian-style West End Brasserie restaurant, is one of the best places in the capital to celebrate with friends and colleagues this December. Aside from their creative cocktail menu, guests can expect a bouncing atmosphere, offering live music and DJ from 9pm every weekend as well as small plates for anyone wanting a boiji late night snack after a few sherry's. Encore also features a Photo Booth to capture your party night antics. IG: @encoreedinburgh

Wunderbar, Glasgow

Inspired by bier halles from around the world, Wunderbar is a place to explore, discover and be your own kind of weird.

Why Not, Edinburgh

Why Not Nightclub has quickly reinstated its reputation as Edinburgh’s premier night spot and has proven itself to be the most popular nightclub destination in Edinburgh. As well as an innovative new look Whynot has always endeavoured to be pioneers and continue to lead the way in the capital's nightlife scene.

Kong has also recently opened a trendy heated rooftop spot inviting guests to experience the best the city has to offer this party season. IG: @kong_glasgow

El Barrio, Edinburgh

This venue is a firm favourite of mine and I can be seen there regularly on the dance floor. With plenty of booth-seating and in house DJs offering a playlist fusing chart hits, club anthems and Hispanic rhythms. A welcome change from the fashion parade of George Street nightspots or self-conscious indie-bopping of studenty Old Town, El Barrio's Latino twist on clubbing is especially atmospheric for a christmas night out. Free entry during the week and open until 5am during the festive season. IG: @elbarrio_latino
