Private Hire - City Centre Location

Watch our private hire video here...

Located in the heart of the City centre The Basement is one of Leicesters' little gems. This underground venue with its low ceilings, exposed brickwork and cosy feel is simply the perfect place to host your private event. Whether you are looking for a venue for your wedding reception, birthday party or corporate function The Basement can tailor make your event.

The venue can be hired out for parties of 50 + and can hold up to 150 people. Venue Hire is available 7 days a week.

Although we have no catering facilities here at the venue you are more than welcome to arrange for your own catering to be delivered to the venue or alternatively we can point you in the direction of some of our local food partners who are both local to the venue and can cater for larger parties.

We have a wide range of drinks including cocktails and can help create bespoke drinks menus if desired. Welcome drinks, bar tabs etc is also something that can be arranged.

The Basement has an in house sound system. You may wish to bring your own music on a laptop or mobile...that's fine just plug it into our system and you're away. Or you may wish to provide a dj. If you need help in providing music for your party then we can help by offering you one of our many dj's that we have on our books so we can find the right dj for your party.

Not familiar with The Basement? Then why not arrange a time that suits you to pop in and see the all starts there really. You have to like the space....and we think you will! There you can see the venue and we can discuss your plans in more detail. Alternatively all enquirers can be dealt with over the phone or by email....whichever suits best.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Best venue in Leicester

Had a great 30th birthday party at the basement. such a great cool venue. Ideally located in city centre. Great décor and staff. Couldn’t fault it. I had no idea the basement offered such a great space. Would definitely recommend and book again. Thanks Basement team
