From Leicester Kilo to Easy Sunday's.
Leicester's Lane7 have an exciting and social events calendar this coming autumn and it's got us excited for going out again.
Home to not one but 7 bars, street food traders, gaming, giant screenings and more, Lane7 was always designed to be a venue to freely explore.
Lane7 is a revolution in how people wish to socialise and this is the most ambitious site to date, think permanent festival with different zones to experience.
The line-up features everything from Bottomless Brunch to vintage fairs and player-hosted live sports screenings, with a full event plan to follow into winter.
Lane7 had to adapt to the Covid restrictions which was difficult for the business.
Graeme Smith commented:“The Covid guidelines of groups of 6 saw the business very busy but unfortunately we couldn’t provide the service standards that we aspire to.
"The site was built for customers to free roam, walk around and order at the many bars and food vendors.
"But with restrictions and due to the size of building table service proved difficult. That is hopefully behind us, and we can now operate our Leicester site as it was always supposed to be which is with a pipeline of events both the site and Leicester deserve.”
The 30,000 sq. ft former railway station has reignited the city’s nightlife and entertainment scene.
With 11 bowling lanes across two levels, an interactive crazy golf experience, shuffleboard, beer pong, pool, ping pong and arcade games. This is the entertainment hub of the city.
Enjoy Leicester’s freshest street food, with traders including Deckards, Thai Express and Falaughfel, head inside for bubble waffles and sweet treats from Fika.
There are ample bars for you to explore, from cocktails in Jamie’s Lady Garden to the Big Bar (serving up Leicester Central beer brewed by Framework Brewery). Liquorette, Lane7’s speciality slush bar features 30+ different alcoholic slushies.
Lane7 boasts the city’s biggest 4K HD screen, making it the number one spot to watch sports and entertainment.
Grab a table and don’t miss a second of the action, booking is always advised for the best seat in the house.
Lane7 has already hosted hugely popular Kroud Karaoke events and player hosted football screenings.
