Just as a note to interested people there are a few new bars worth mentioning on here.
There are few buildings with more character in Leicester. The unique 'taps' theme some great tapas and cocktails for those not wanting lager means there is something for everyone and its pretty laid back, relaxed and worth a visit.
Also new is Barristers on Bowling Green Lane. Another old building converted with some taste, they have live jazz/funk on Saturdays and on various days in the week. Good beer on tap and a good atmosphere.
