The club is located about two miles out from the city centre just off the Corstorphine Road not far from Edinburgh Zoo. Our modern office style building boasts one of the best playing facilities in Scotland with a 28 table playing room, a large dual purpose league match room and a teaching suite with a digital projector. The club also benefits from a large social area with a servery/bar where members can relax with a hot drink or glass of wine.

At the New Melville you will receive a warm welcome whether you are a visitor, prospective member or student of the game. Our friendly club caters for players of all standards from absolute beginner to Grand Master by offering a variety of bridge sessions and classes throughout the week. At a number of these sessions you can turn up without a partner as we have standby players available.
