The Exchange Bar

The Exchange Bar has been the social hub of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter since 2011.

After a brief closure in 2019, the newly reopened and renewed Exchange Bar is home to an excellent collection of craft ale, gin, wine, coffee and now, food - new for 2020.

Walking in, The Exchange feels like an extension of your living room. Cosy sofas, mis-match tables and chairs and, most importantly, a friendly smile to greet you. Everyone is made to feel like a regular.

The selection of drinks is wide enough to accommodate all tastes but not too intimidating. Pick from a selection of draught and bottled beers, scour the bottles of spirits lined neatly on the shelves (including a great selection of gin), or indulge in a glass of wine.

If you're feeling peckish, tuck into the menu of treats. From bagels to american pancakes, mezze boards and even breakfast options - there's plenty to choose from.

Host your very own party in one of their two rooms available for hire – for free! Pop in and have a chat with the team, they even offer catering options to make your bash the best in town.

If you're already a customer you know all about the homely vibe on offer, and if you’ve not been before then you are in for a treat - come along and enjoy laid back atmosphere and eclectic qualities which make it one of Leicester’s best venues.
