Canal Mills

The sheer variety and quality of nightlife on offer in Leeds is testament to the fact that this is a city that likes to party. With everything from old fashioned drinking dens to laid back bars and late-night clubs, you won't have to walk far to find something that suits your taste.


Head to the bars on Call Lane for a great party atmosphere, Oporto (recently named Best Night Out in the UK) is popular with local musicians, students and visitors alike. The djs at Norman and Jake's Bar ensure they are always busy, both serving great food too.


For a laid back vibe, North Bar hits the spot. It's Leeds' coolest haunt for lovers of great beer, music and art.


Sophisticated types should make their way to Oracle - a stylish bar with an outdoor Moet terrace overlooking the river.


Live music is the heart and soul of Leeds nightlife, and we've got plenty of large scale and intimate venues to catch the latest bands in. The Wardrobe attracts a variety of big names, as does The Cockpit - a Leeds favourite, also known for it's club nights.


Dancing til dawn should always be attempted when you've got great clubs like Mission and Mint Club to choose from.




  • Mojo - The original rock and roll bar, great for cocktails and a classic music playlist.


  • The O2 Academy  - Large scale live music venue just off Millennium Square.



  • The Hifi Club - regular comedy, live bands and dj nights at this friendly basement club.


  • Belgrave Music Hall- Independent venue with music, art, film and food spread across three floors, including Leeds’ most spectacular roof terrace.
