Assembly Checkpoint

Assembly Checkpoint is located on Bristo Place, about half way between the Royal Mile and Assembly George Square, and houses one main venue that plays host to mix of cabaret, music, variety and theatrical shows. It also has a cracking restaurant that does a mean cocktail or a kickstarting coffee to get you through your festival day.
