Food, drink and nightlife

As a true student city, Leicester has a huge variety of bars and clubs offering student nights and discounts, including MOSH, Republic and Blueprint. We have everything from champagne bars to real ale pubs and plenty of takeaways to end the night in true student style. Why not try one of Leicester's many dessert or milkshake bars for a different (and sugar-fuelled) evening?

Leicester’s cultural diversity is reflected in the stunning range of cuisine available, with restaurants representing all corners of the globe. On top of all that, you can be safe in the knowledge that you will never be far from a great curry house.

For something a bit more familiar, Leicester’s newly developed restaurant quarter has all the big names you’d expect, including Wagamama, Carluccio’s, Turtle Bay, Chimichanga, Coast to Coast and Byron Burger.
