Leicester has always had an eclectic and super-cool nightlife scene, but in recent years it has got bigger and better than ever before, so if you haven’t been in town for a while, check out some of the best nightclubs in Leicester.
Being a major university city, it’s only right that our home in the heart of the Midlands should have a whole host of places to live it up into the early hours and there’s something for every musical taste there is.
As a Leicester taxi company we regularly take people of all ages for a night on the town and are there if needed to pick them up whenever they need a safe ride home. So, when you’re looking for the best nightclubs in Leicester, here is a list of some of the most popular:
- Best for young adults: Get lost in the magnitude of Club Republic
- Best for a touch of chic: Stay super cool and energetic at electronic music venue Havana.
- Best for students: Mosh – three floors of Indie, Pop Mash-Up, Dance, Rock, Emo and Urban.
- Best for legendary Leicester clubbing: The Fan Club – home of 80s, 90s, indie club nights.
- Best for live music lovers – Leicester’s longest running live music venue, The Shed.
The best nightclubs in Leicester – two of the best
When you haven’t got an amazing summer holiday destination on the cards and have decided to plan some great nights out in Leicester instead, here are some more details about some of the popular places to go:
So, let’s start with the biggest. This is a huge, state of the art, nightclub made up of several clubs and bars playing a variety of different music styles, from house and RnB to chart toppers. Its boudoir style and decor allows you to become submerged in a heady mix of audio and visual entertainment.
Club Republic attracts a fairly mainstream bunch of clientele and becomes all the more appealing for those watching the pennies, because it has a range of special offers on drinks – making it a perfect nightclub destination for Leicester students. Just don’t get lost – because it’s huge!
The Fan Club
Just around the corner from Club Republic is The Fan Club – a haven for those who like to avoid the more mainstream chart-topping music of today. This is most definitely a city legend when it comes to the best nightclubs and we defy anyone from Leicester under the age of 50 not to be aware of its existence. After all, it is the place famous for launching the career of the amazing House DJ Graeme Park!
Traditionally renowned for its indie vibe, since it first opened in the mid 1980s, The Fan Club has undergone a series of refurbs and now has a range of guest DJs that are more than happy to send you back to the magic of the 80s, 90s and 00s with their indie, rock and alternative style.
Stay safe – travel in style
When you’ve had a few drinks after an awesome night out in Leicester, it pays to stay safe by booking a taxi from the club in advance, or at least before the alcohol kicks in. This way you can be sure to get home in one piece and avoid waiting around in the cold.
Booking a taxi in advance also means a cheaper fare than grabbing one when you need it and at Kirby Taxis we also have the ability to take large groups. Get in touch for more details or to book a taxi today.
