3 new hotspots for Leicester’s nightlife

If you’ve become bored of going to the same old places then you’re in luck as 3 new venues have opened up to bring a new flavour to Leicester’s nightlife.

Gate 38 is located on Belvoir Street and takes over the former site of Hush nightclub. Themed around an aeroplane with original plane features and interiors. Open from 9pm to 3.30am every weekend, no trainers or sportswear, you really need to see the inside of the club to enjoy the concept!

Also now open on High Street, between Cafe Bruxelles and Homme & Co, is the fantastic Apres Lounge. Apres Lounge is the concept and creation of Alex Salter, owner of Homme & Co, who wanted to take the inspiration of the apres ski concept and bring it to Leicester. The venue opened on Saturday 13 December to rave reviews and was packed out for opening night. We definitely suggest heading down to enjoy it over the festive period.

Finally, opening next week is the luxurious Lava Lounge. Located on Market Street the owners have taken great pride in totally revamping this venue to bring a fantastic, late night bar to the area. Perfect for after work drinks that run late into the evening there will be high quality drinks on offer and booths available for private hire. They’ve also installed an awesome looking pixel wall downstairs, for light displays, or even your own messages. Private hire, booths, drinks packages and more will be available. The bar opens on Thursday 18 December and they’re already putting together some great events over Christmas and New Year. Keep an eye on the Lava Lounge Facebook page for more info.
