Leeds offers a truly unforgettable hen night out. With a massive city centre which provides such a wide range of entertainment, a hen night in Leeds is guaranteed to be enjoyed by everyone. This northern city is one of the UK's most popular clubbing destinations, packed with great pubs and bars, fantastic nightclubs and a group-pleasing range of entertainment. The nightlife scene here is second to none and is guaranteed to impress your group and give something for everyone to try out.
Choose one of our show-stopping cabaret experiences, where you'll be entertained throughout the night by drag acts, hunky strippers and hilarious comedians, or take a chance at one of Leeds' finest casinos. Also available is our murder mystery night where you'll receive not only a tasty slap-up meal but also get to spend the evening guessing 'whodunit' and trying to beat the other girls! From greyhound racing to a ride in the boogie bus or laughs at the comedy club, you'll be spoilt for choice. No matter what you choose to do, you're on to a winner with a hen night in lively and vibrant Leeds.
There's so much on offer in Leeds after sundown whatever your tastes may be, the fun-loving Yorkshire locals as well as a massive student population really know how to party hard! Head to Call Lane for a buzzing party atmosphere, great DJs and some of the best bars around, which are perfect for kicking off your big night out. Enjoy group-pleasing chain favourites or try out popular and trendy Jake's Bar, which brews its own drinks before your eyes, or Bar Room Bar, where you can enjoy a slice of pizza over your favourite tipple. Call Lane Social is a haven for quality indie music and a favourite with hip young professionals is ‘North Bar', voted the best place to drink in the whole of the UK, which is a must-see too - if you can manage to squeeze in past the crowds! Nearby Park Row and Cockridge Street also offer up some fantastic drinking spots. The areas around both train stations are always buzzing with life as well.
If late night clubbing and bar hopping doesn't float your hen night boat, there's still plenty to keep you amused in this city that never sleeps. If you visit in winter, the ice rink and Christmas markets in Millennium Square are just perfect, or hang out at the new and cosmopolitan Clarence Dock riverside area with the coolest young professionals in the city. If you fancy looking at some art, great architecture or catching a film, the Civic Quarter is for you, or watch a show at the majestic City Varieties Music Hall. Live music is also easy to find all over the city, as is hilarious comedy, theatre and festival events which go on well into the night. Somewhat surprisingly perhaps, Leeds is also home to a thriving ballet scene, so if you're partial to a pirouette, be sure to check out The Northern Ballet's regular performances of new and classic dances.
The city centre of Leeds is best negotiated on foot, but if you need to get into some of the more lively party destinations from accommodation situated further out, or simply don't fancy the walk in your glad rags, there are plenty of transport options available to you and your group. Allow GoHen to book up any necessary transfers for you or catch a ‘LeedsCityBus' for 50p, which loops the city all day.
Clubs in Leeds are nothing short of amazing, so expect to find venues which cater for just about every taste in music around the city. Visit group-pleasing party hotspots for several rooms offering different varieties of music, bars, dance floors and clientele. With over 10 major clubs to go for, you'll be able to find everything from jazz, soul, indie and funk to hip hop and even live music or comedy, as well as the latest chart releases and fresh new mixes from top DJs in vibrant Leeds. If you're keen to catch the next big thing on your Leeds hen night head to cool Cockpit, loved by locals, tourists and students alike, or The Wardrobe, a trendy venue in St. Peter's Square. Enjoy the mellow tones of quality 90s Britpop and modern alternative or dance the night away in a club dedicated solely to the music of the awesome 80s! Perfectly cheesy for your hen night.
There are so many places to try in Leeds when you fancy a few drinks with the girls before heading out to sample the incredible nightlife. From great value chains that you'll all recognise, to fun student spots offering fantastic deals on spirits and mixers, as well as plenty of swanky, quirky and completely unique cocktail bars to tantalise your taste-buds when you need to impress with something a little bit special. The Maven is a great place to start - it looks unassuming, lying atop an unmarked staircase at the top of happening Call Lane, but don't be fooled, the delicious cocktails crafted lovingly by talented mixologists are so worth its dingy exterior. Similarly, The Alchemist in the Trinity Centre is the place to indulge in drinks which are not only scrumptious, but also made with cutting edge molecular techniques which are great fun to watch. When you really want to push the boat out, the SkyLounge which sits right at the top of the Doubletree Hilton offers incredible views of the city - it brings a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘living the high life'... There are so many fantastic bars to choose from in Leeds, it's difficult to know where to start!
Leeds is a really multicultural city, so there's a wide variety of delicious and authentic cuisines from all over the world to taste, from delicious south Asian curries to the usual Italian and Chinese. Over the past few years, plenty of gourmet British gastro pubs have opened up, along with all the chain restaurants that you and your group will recognise and love. The areas around Bishopsgate Street and Merrion Street are the best places to find Chinese restaurants and tasty curries if you feel like something a little more exotic. Leeds is a varied yet upmarket city, making it one of the very best places to chow down in the UK.
Leeds really is one of the very best cities in the north, if not the whole of the UK, to hold your hen night, offering up unbeatable nightlife, a huge range of quality eateries and cocktail bars and an exciting, cosmopolitan atmosphere. When you book your Leeds hen night with GoHen, we offer loads of brilliant nightlife activities for you to try - take to the mic with our karaoke nights or laugh the night away at our comedy clubs. If you're feeling saucy, be waited on hand and foot by our sexy hen hosts who wear nothing more than an apron! With a selection of different packages, there's a great range, but if none of our Leeds combinations sound quite perfect to you, we'll be more than happy to create a package that's just right. Get ready for an action-packed hen night in the lovely, lively city of Leeds!
