Food, drink and nightlife

leicester restaurants and bars at nightAs a true student city, Leicester has a huge variety of bars and clubs offering student nights and discounts. We have everything from champagne bars to real ale pubs to coffee shops and award-winning restaurants.

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’s as the former UK Curry Capital 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.
