Leeds is a great creative hub, with many different areas of the arts well represented, but especially so in music. In Leeds, we're most proud of our DIY scene, at the centre of which is the now-legendary Briudenell Social Club. The "Brude" is the hub of most musical activity in Leeds - most musicians and producers in Leeds are always found there! That's not to say that there aren't loads of other good spaces if you're looking for new music, as there are a slew of independant spaces like Wharf chambers, Belgrave Music Hall and Chunk to name a few.
Aside from music, there are a large number of pubs, bars, nightclubs and restaurants to explore. We've listed a few that we love below.
The Brudenell is a brilliant independant venue based in Leeds 6, with an open music policy that embraces music and art under a wide and diverse umbrella. It has been a centrepiece of the Leeds music scene for a number of years, and hosts gigs most nights of the week, which are put on by a variety of local promoters.
The bars serve quality local cask and world speciality craft ales that sit alongside well known and accessible brands, all at a fair price.
Facilities include: 2 seperate concert rooms, a lounge, a games room (with snooker table, 5 pool tables, darts, table football, pinball machine, Sky TV and ESPN showing all the live sports in HD.
Wharf Chambers is another DIY co-op venue in the centre of Leeds, providing a home for many different areas of the arts, such as music, art and film as well as other community activities such as craft groups, wellbeing classes etc.
