Edinburgh Clubbers of the Week: Week two, return of the (J)edi

The semester is back in full swing so it’s time to put our heads down and focus on work, right?

Despite being in the deep dark depths of winter, when no amount of alcohol can act as a blanket from the absolutely baltic Edinburgh winds, the students of Edi have been out making the most of our freshly reopened clubs.

Sure, the first deadlines of the semester are beginning to loom and reading week is still a distant dream, but it’s a well-known fact that a Subway venom is an effective treatment for vitamin D deficiency, coursework-induced stress and for seasonal depression. Besides, everyone knows students have a famously healthy work-life balance!

We can now go out without having to sit weirdly at tables on the dancefloor – here are the best pictures we found of people making the most of this freedom.

Was this photo taken seconds after a massive friendzone or are they just dancing?

I just know this was so annoying to get rid of when she got home still drunk

(David Attenborough voice): “And here we see a lesser-spotted victorious Scotland rugby fan in the wild… He has been on the bevs since midday and its now midnight…”

You okay huns?

Either a polo social or a really fancy private school reunion. Let us know if you recognise those ties

Me wondering why anyone would want their photo taken at the club


The girl at the back gets it

The person in the middle is so me

Chaos, in the best way
