Leicester Nightlife

It’s a pub styled bar but it’s not a pub. Catering to a diverse clientele, this modern bar tucked away in a corner of a side street has a large fish tank as a centerpiece of attraction. The bar is small but the tall ceilings and mirror accents give it a spacious feel. There is an upstairs as well where you can enjoy your drink in peace. read more

Leicester History

During this time Leicester also had an Earl.  He was somewhat of a tyrant towards his people and in 1173, he rebelled against the king causing the king’s army to burn a section of the town down.  In 1231, he banished all people with Jewish descent from the town.  Leicester did prosper, though, due to the wool and leather industries and eventually the merchants took over some of the Earl’s control. read more
