10 reviews of Lava ignite in English
All the staff are pretty decent apart from one bouncer who asked my friend to leave for no reason.
If you want a free flasher show, just walk up and down the pavements when the club finishes - the ladies who sit on the curb don't know how to cross their legs...
One of Edinburgh's multiplicitous student-oriented night clubs. Perhaps more than others this particular one possesses an air of desperation that lingers throughout the night, growing in intensity as the night wears on and the crowd separates out into singles and couples.
Those who fail return home alone and in shameful silence. Only pure mammalian politics operates within Cav's walls.
Not really as the reviews have you believe :( Went at the weekend, it was stupid expensive and full of chavs bouncing around to hardcore music and chewing their faces off. Girlfriend got punched by a guy when there was a fight on the dancefloor. Looks like the alter ego Lager and a Fight is a little more accurate!
More commonly known as CAV this club is amazing.the student nights are espessially good as their cheap.The only thing to watch out for on student night is the queues which go for miles and usually dont seem to be moving quickly.There are a few differnt rooms so if you get bored of the classics upstairs you can go down for the club,trance music and the rnb room.!a great place to go celebrate an event whether it be a birthday or a hen nightyou can always ensure it’ll be a fun night..and sometimes you get a complimentary bottle of champaigne
I used to love this club, a few years ago it was a mecca for students and was always a great night out with the same familiar crowds on Sunday and Wednesdays, now on Friday and saturdays the age limit has been lowered so it is just as popular on these nights. Althought his has drawn in rougher crowds and there tends to be quite a lot of fights now.
It used to be well known for its cheapness but now at £7 to get in and £3.50 for a bottle of VK it is just as expensive as the more classy clubs so its maybe time to see what some of the other places are like.
The main floor is all dance music, upstairs is still old cheese and the back room tend to be R n B but in my opinion a bit of a mix would be better on the main dance floor as the back room would be more suited to a chill out room.
It is still a great night out just not as good as the old school cav!
Lava ignite, or 'cav' as many people still know it since its name change, boasts a massive capacity and multiple dance floors and rooms. Downstairs is the main floor which on a Wednesday or Sunday (the student nights) has chart music, or rock if someone like radio 1 Colin Murray is visiting. There is an R&B room adjacent, and a cheesy hits room upstairs. Plenty of different bars makes this place a great night out. Definitely at its best on special events nights, but also really crowded so go early and take a SnapFax (queue jump) if you have one!
I absolutely love this place! I have been going for about 4 years at least once a month. It is a great place for everyone to go, it used to have over 25's nights on a Friday and a Saturday so on these nights you sometimes get a mixed crowd where as on a Wed or a Sun these are student ngihts where the drinks and entry fee is a bit cheaper. Even still on a non student night entry is ony about £6. The music is a good mix, on the main dance floor it tends to be dance music, though in the back bar its mostly R n B and upstairs is all the old anthems and cheese music. In all the times I have been there has never been any trouble. The only thing I would say is watch out for queues and lengthy bar waiting times on pay day weekend, it tends to be really busy on that weekend.
Lava ignite is a night time haunt for locals and students. It markets itself as having "the ultamite clubbing experience for contemporary people" but I wouldn't worry too much about that. Its generally a good night out - the student nights on Wednesday and Sunday are very cheap though watch out for the queues. The music is nothing too exciting - chart hits and disco classics - but perfect for a giggle with your mates.
