About

St Martin's Square

St Martin’s Square is a delightful spot to while away an afternoon. The pretty courtyard is surrounded by unique independent shops, restaurants and salons; making this tranquil area a fantastic place to sit and enjoy a coffee with friends, pick up a quirky gift or to experiment with a new look.

St Martin’s Tea and Coffee Merchants offers a cosy place to enjoy a freshly roasted coffee or a deli lunch. In the evenings, they transform into Crafty Burger, one of the best rated restaurants in the city on TripAdvisor.For afters another TripAdvisor favourite is Gelato Village, who make award-winning fresh Italian gelato – so good that it tastes just as fabulous when it’s cold outside! Laid-back cafe Kai and elegant wine bar Veeno also make excellent options for a relaxed lunch stop.

Vintage clothes lovers and those looking for one-off, quirky pieces should head to The Vintage Scene, where you will find both in abundance. Beau Nouveau Paris has a fabulous selection of imported women’s fashions from Italy and Paris that cannot be found elsewhere in the UK. If you're looking to give your existing wardrobe a bit of TLC, then seek out the Clothing Alterations Co, Leicester's oldest alterations business who also offers same day dry cleaning services.

From head to toe, there is a small business in St Martin's Square available to ensure that every inch of you is pampered and preened. Both ladies and gentlemen are generously catered for, with Alberico or Flappers & Gentlemen hair salons and NKD Waxing offering a range of services. Shorty's barbers, Black Market Tattoo and Artistreet Makeup Studio finish this full set of style and beauty services on offer within this diverse shopping area.

Harriman & Co state that they offer “beautiful, practical, honest and pure household items and furniture of the considered home” – and it’s hard to argue with them! Just Fairtrade is another little gem. This social enterprise store sells delightful products that help people in the world’s poorest countries to work their way out of poverty. If you haven't yet shopped 'til you drop, pop in to Crafty Sew & So, Cocoa Amore or Brides of Bond Street for more specialised retail therapy.

Into the evening, Bodega Cantina authentic and easy-going South American dishes, and it’s going down a storm with locals! Next see if you've got what it takes to pit your wits against Leicester's original escape room experience at the Escape Asylum. If it’s evening cocktails you’re after, you're spoiled for choice with a Leicester-inspired drinks menu at 33cankstreet, or refined champagne cocktails care of 45 St Martin's. Those looking for a drinks menu with a difference will also enjoy The Bottle Garden, who take their inspiration from a heady mixture of fascinating botanicals.
