Located in the heart of the student ghetto of Hyde park in Leeds, The Brudenell Social Club is the jewel in the crown of the Leeds live music scene. A former 'gentleman's social and recreational club', the Brudenell Social Club now provides Leeds an alternative to the mainstream clubs and music venues. With a variety of cheap drinks and live gig nights on offer, the Brudenell attracts a unique crowd.
The intimate atmosphere of the venue has earned it a space on the NME shortlist for the UK's best small venue, as well as attracting secret gigs by the likes of Franz Ferdinand, The Kooks and Leeds' own Kaiser Chiefs. Despite these mainstream bands, it is the underground scene which The Brudenell is famed. Several gigs a week from Post-Rock to acoustic singer-songwriters ,the venue provides a breath of fresh air for those longing to escape the mainstream. Up-and-coming bands are provided a platform in which to display their music to a receptive and friendly crowd. Gigs can range from as much as £14 for a ticket for more well known artists, to free events for lesser-known bands just wanting to get their material out there.
The Brudenell is a truly unique venue and is an ideal night for those who are interested in the independent music scene and love their drinks cheap.
