Nightlife

Heading out into the night, you’ll have a world of possibilities before you. Those in search of refined refreshment might find themselves sipping wine and nibbling on charcuterie in Friends of Ham, or nursing a half in North Bar, the UK’s original craft beer destination. Or hit the clubs, loud and proud. Our LGBT+ community knows how to party, packing dancefloors all night long. Cocktail lovers head for the bars of Call Lane, sampling an ever changing menu of mixology, before heading on to shake down to Northern Soul at Smokestack, or electronica at Wire.

The right ticket will take you even further. International stars bring their music to the first direct arena, and up and coming bands make grassroots venues like Brudenell Social Club a must-have tour stop. On stages across the city, from the historic City Varieties, to the renowned Leeds Playhouse, actors, dancers and performers light up the night with talent and energy.
