Firebug

About

Firebug

Opened in the summer of 2004, Firebug has fast become an essential part of Leicester’s night life and a quiet retreat from city centre shopping during the day.

A light and spacious main bar is complemented by a quiet and sheltered beer garden - the perfect place to escape from the daytime shoppers! The bar has one of the city’s most extensive drinks ranges, a carefully selected cocktail menu and a great selection of home-cooked food available every day.

Firebug’s relaxed dress code and music policy attracts visitors from all walks of life – from students at the near-by universities to professionals working in the city centre. What’s more, the bar has a reputation nationally as an essential stopping point for visitors to the city. Love live music and entertainment? Then you need to stop by. Over the last few years Firebug has seen live performances the likes of Foals, Dutch Uncles, Johnny Foreigner, Frank Turner, Frightened Rabbit and The Twilight Sad. Fancy a laugh? Stewart Lee, Richard Herring, Russell Howard and Josie Long, amongst many others appear in the bar as part of the regular Bottle Rocket Comedy night and The Leicester Comedy Festival.

It’s also incredibly popular for private parties, intimate club nights, photography and art exhibitions, independent film screenings and all manner of other events.
