Lovely place to relax away from the hussell and bussell of a busy Saturday shopping day. Good menu offering reasonably priced food and beverages. Well worth a visit. Think this is now my new favourite place to take some time out and chill

We went to the Otis Reading night and it was fabulous. There was a great atmosphere the drinks were reasonable and there was a mixed to older age group which was perfect for us. Will definitely be going again.

In Leicester on a Friday evening to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday - he'd heard good things about Jukebox so we decided to have a look. Unfortunately, one of our group of six polite, smartly-dressed forty- and fifty-somethings was refused entry by the doormen for wearing WHITE TRAINERS (shock, horror). I was briefly reminded of having to 'pass' nightlife dress codes in the 1980s. Fortunately, none of our party had bought drinks so we walked straight out and went somewhere more welcoming. This place seems to get some good reviews, so I really don't know what was going on. But since the 1980s I've acquired the self-confidence to know that the problem is with Jukebox, not me, and that I don't intend to return. Unbelievable!

Went to Jukebox for first time Fri 20th Jan to see Kenny Thomas. Our tickets from ticketmaster stated doors open 7pm and Kenny starts 7.30pm. Arrived at 7 and doors closed. Was pouring with rain so shelted down the road and went back 7.30 and still doors closed. This time there was 5 other people waiting outside who were saying they had been kicked out for being early! Website stated doors open at 8pm so we all waited outside under the canopy. More people arrived, expecting it to have opened at 7pm.It was wet & very cold. 8pm came and went, staff inside were looking at us all but did not open doors til 8.15! I felt this was unacceptable. Once inside we found out Kenny was not appearing til 10pm. Upon chatting to others they also had tickets or emails saying doors open at 7 and Kenny on 7.30. It seems like the entry times were misleading to ensure you arrived early and so spent more whilst waiting for Kenny to go on stage. Music thou was very good, Kenny excellent as always but we will go see him at other venues rather than visit Jukebox again.

I've visited Jukebox on numerous occasions with friends and with my husband. Really nice R'n'B/Soul/Funk venue and a great atmosphere catering for all ages.So speaking as a 50+ who still likes to frequent town i feel more than comfortable here. Every Friday night they have live music by way of a band or a solo artist...i saw the one & only "The Real Thing' here last year which was awesome.Had many good nights here since it opened about 18months ago and i'm sure there's many more to be had.
Well done Jukebox, keep it up 😀

Very good bar with excellent entertainment. Staff very polite and friendly. The place is only small but the atmosphere is massive. Really enjoyed it here. Friday and Saturday nights in Leicester give this place a go!

This is a fun place, great crowd, cheap drinks, and good entertainment on the Friday we were there (a live music - Motown night in the back area - Shola Kaye). A very good destination for a fun night. Great concept.

The minute you hit jukebox the vibe changes, you're not in Leicester anymore. Oh no, you are now in Miami sipping on a cool cocktail taking in how great life is! Very good priced drinks and fantastic staff make Jukebox my no1 location in Leicester! Check it out and thank me later!

Visited here last Friday. There was a love Jazz band playing who were excellent. The prices for drinks was very reasonable. Only issue was the music was incredibly loud at times.

Was quite a bizarre mixture of club meets wedding meets cocktail bar. The covers band were pretty good but it felt like we were in the middle aged section of a drunken wedding dance floor so left after a couple of drinks.
