In Leeds you’ll find some of the best nightlife in the North.
Whether you’re grabbing a bite to eat, getting competitive at Junkyard Golf, or dancing the night away at club nights featuring everything from grime to indie, you won’t be short of places to have a good time.
Call Lane and Merrion Street are two of the city’s most popular locations, with plenty of bars and restaurants to pick from. With BBQ and pizza, craft beer and cocktails, and even live bands and DJs to choose from, you’re sure to be spoilt for choice.
Lower Briggate is the destination for LGBTQ+ nights out in Leeds, with Queens Court and Viaduct at the heart of it. It also marks the final destination of the annual Leeds Pride parade – one of the city’s biggest celebrations of love and equality.
It would be a crime to talk about the nightlife of Leeds without mentioning the Leeds music scene.
Leeds is known for its legendary live music scene, where you can catch global stars and future festival headliners at the First Direct Arena or O2 Academy and the world-famous Brudenell Social Club, or visit some of the city’s small venues to catch your favourite rising acts.
One of the biggest parts of the city’s music scene is festival season. Leeds hosts a variety of music festivals, catering for every genre. Live At Leeds showcases the world’s best emerging artists as it takes over the city centre, while Leeds Festival, the city’s largest and most famous festival, attracts some of the biggest names in popular music every August bank holiday weekend.
