About us

Here at The Basement late bar & club, we mix up alternative music & entertainment, cocktails & a happy vibe, to bring something that bit different to the Leicester scene. With soul, funk, hip hop, reggae, dance & bass and just about everything in between, we’ve got it going on. And because we are also available for private hire, you can host your own thing too.
