The West End of Leicester, which takes in Narborough Road and Braunstone Gate, is the beating heart of the city. With its brilliant bars, fabulous food, and multi-cultural credentials, the area epitomises everything the city has to offer. There is so much to choose from, including dozens of restaurants from around the world.
Whether you’re looking for something a little upmarket or a chilled and relaxed night out, it’s all here. The music scene in the West End is vibrant due to its colourful urban nightlife - so the sounds of indie, house, soul and reggae are never too far away.
Nine Bar, in Narborough Road, is a stylish, yet relaxed destination to visit, while the ever popular Obar in Braunstone Gate has added a smokehouse dining room upstairs to its repertoire and is also offering a new extensive range of specialist craft beers. General manager Phil Hewitt said: “We believe we’ve created something different - not just for the Braunstone Gate area, but for the city of Leicester too. We plan to rotate the beer we offer, as well as feature guest craft beers, so that we can serve a dynamic range and appeal to all tastes.”
Meanwhile, the refurbished Looking Glass, along the same stretch wouldn't look amiss in any trendy London quarter. So if you’re looking for a fun night out, then head down to Leicester’s West End.
