With the festival excitement drawing to a close, people could be forgiven for slipping into a depression and wondering what is there to do in Edinburgh now? The answer to that is a simple one, everything! Whatever kind of entertainment they enjoy, Scotland's capital has it in abundance. From music acts like The Enemy to world famous comedians like Billy Connolly, Edinburgh has it all. The best advice is to head to an Apex Hotel, book up, dress up and hit the town for a fun packed gig or show and enjoy the night.

Get back in to the festival comedy spirit and book a hotel room in Edinburgh to go and see Rob Brydon's gig at the Playhouse on the 6th of December. The Welsh comedian is playing himself for the first time, rather than his alter ego 'Keith Barret' and will surely have the crowd up for a bit of fun. Comedian Jimmy Carr is back on the road with his new show and will grace the Playhouse Theatre on the 20th of December. This is not a show for the easily offended but he is a man who certainly gets the crowd going with his near the knuckle act.

Music fans out there will be delighted to hear that Scotland's most famous twins are coming back to Edinburgh on the 10th and 11th of November. The Proclaimers play the Usher Hall on Lothian Road and with a mix of new songs and some classic anthems such as 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)' they are sure to appeal to a wide range of people. Coventry based indie band The Enemy, whose hits include 'live and die in these towns' and 'this song' play the Corn Exchange on the 10th of November and this is not to be missed.

November also lends itself to the Autumn Tests rugby matches where Scotland play three games in eleven days. All the matches will be played at Murrayfield, with the opening match against Fiji on the 14th of November set to be the baptism of Scotland's new coach. The world's third ranked team Australia play Scotland on the 21st of November and Argentina, who Scotland defeated in their last meeting, arrive on the 28th and kick off at 2.30pm. The Apex European Hotel, just a short walk from the stadium, provides the quickest access to Murrayfield Stadium. The best way to enjoy the match is by booking a short break in Edinburgh, take in the wonderful game, have a nice meal and enjoy the wonderful nightlife.

The Playhouse Theatre provides a family fun day out with plays Beauty and the Beast showing from the 23rd of September until the 3rd of October and the Queen musical 'We will rock you' on from the 4th of November until the start of 2010. The Playhouse facilities include a sweet kiosk for the kids and a bar for the adults, meaning everyone is catered for.

Edinburgh also has a world renowned reputation for its Hogmanay street party and with the festive period looming large why not plan a Christmas and New Year break in Edinburgh and stay at the Apex Waterloo Place Hotel. This landmark building is 'perfectly located for a spot of shopping on the world famous Princes Street. It's also only a stone throw away from designer shopping street, George Street, which is home to designer labels such as Louis Vuitton and Harvey Nichols. The boutique hotel is also perfectly placed for Edinburgh's Winter Wonderland. This magical winter program provides festive entertainment including ice skating, live entertainment and fun for the whole family.
