Nightlife in Leeds

With a late-night club scene rivalling any other provincial UK city, Leeds' most popular dance venues are mainly in the city centre. Most stay open until 3am or 5am. Highlights for live music include leading Northern gig venue The Cockpit, and jazz club The Wardrobe. Also in the city centre, the Victorian opulence of Leeds Grand Theatre & Opera House provides the North of England's focal point for theatre, ballet, opera and classical music.
