Hire our spaces

Collective provides an extraordinary setting for your event, wedding, private dining experience, or photo/film shoot. Situated in the heart of Edinburgh, with panoramic views across the city, we have a range of spaces available to hire. Catering from The Lookout by Gardener’s Cottage will ensure a unique experience for your guests.

Weddings at Collective
We know celebrating a wedding ceremony or civil partnership during the pandemic has been challenging. With current Scottish Government guidelines limiting guests to 50, it's a time for compact, intimate spaces with character and special atmosphere to shine.

At Collective, we have hire availability in our unique City Dome in September 2021. Originally built to gaze at the night sky, the City Dome was repurposed as a flexible exhibition and events space in 2016. With underfloor heating and a raw brick interior which can accommodate 20 socially distanced guests and be dressed to your taste, it's the perfect venue for a small wedding.

Alongside our restaurant partners, The Lookout by Gardener's Cottage, we can offer a range of options and alternate spaces, including year-round hire of the historic City Observatory. For an informal conversation about your needs, get in touch and we'll arrange to call you when it's convenient. All income from hires directly supports our mission to bring people together around contemporary art.

"John and I are so grateful for the wonderful Saturday that you have made possible for our wedding celebration. Truly everything went better than we had hoped despite the rains. All of our guests really enjoyed themselves and were just blown away by the food. I think John and I will be making it a tradition to return to the Lookout on our anniversary!

Those watching virtually were impressed by the venue and the organisation of it all which you have made so smooth - and I hope you can pass on our thanks to all those involved."

New social distancing measures are now in place at Collective and we are closely following Government guidelines. These measures also apply to our hire spaces and events - please get in touch to discuss your needs.

We know planning ahead is currently hard, during this time we will work hard to be as flexible as possible to accommodate you on any re-scheduling which may become necessary.
