The Exchange Bar has been at the heart of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter since 2011, located opposite the Curve Theatre it also just few minutes walk away from Phoenix Cinema and very close to the Ramada Encore Hotel, as well as many friendly restaurants, bars and cafe's. If you want to shop, then nearby is the popular Highcross Shopping Centre. Leicester’s train station and Haymarket Bus Station are within walking distance.

At The Exchange Bar, they have two rooms which are both available to hire free of charge. The Snug, which is next door to the main bar, is ideal for small groups up to 40, and the Cellar has enough space for up to 120 people, with its own bar, and room for you to bring a band or a DJ.

The Exchange Bar values each and every one of it’s customers, and make them feel extremely welcome!
