Terrible place, really so nasty that I've never seen one anywhere. It's a shame that the second largest city in England has such a disgusting place. Service at the bar is poor but the worst are the guys who come there. Old, and the main guests are the bar staff, so the bar is frequented by people who work there. Disgusting loud laughter at the whole club is terrible. Never again. After leaving this place, my well-being was terrible

Was so much better at the old venue. I'm glad it reopened elsewhere but they need to invest on making a similar atmosphere and 'spaces' as before. It's laid out like a nightclub but people don't go to dance; also blue lights are horrible: bring back red lights, stand around bar, private themed rooms, authentic cottages and a proper maze... There is so much unused space, it's not expensive to do. I don't understand why they haven't .

Rude and sarcastic door staff. Very unwelcoming. £8 entry is very excessive for such a basic place. No card payments either. Look elsewhere

Zero stars! This place is not friendly to young people. It is not friendly to foreigners. Enjoy outside the EU. You have to be 40+ for someone to be nice to you. I do not recommend. £ 8 on Saturday, sorry but this place is not worth even £ 1 Terrible, not nice service. No respect for visitors. Different prices, one time more expensive and then cheaper. It is not possible to pay by card, but you can do cash back ahaha, Avoid !!!

Just saw new year 2020 in this amazing club, so much fun to be had in here! The club was warm and very friendly, with cheap drinks. Easy access and somewhere to leave your bag and coat. The club has a varied clientele and was impressed by the facilities. Will defo be back here to enjoy the company of like minded guys. Very much a place to relax and enjoy life in. LOVED IT

The venues in this list have been curated by BLUF members, and we believe them all to be welcoming of men in leather uniform. However, note that in some cases, dresscode may only be approriate on certain nights. If in doubt, check with a venue before travelling.

We make every effort to keep the information on this page up to date. Please let us know of any errors or omissions.

In some cases, you may see more restrictive opening times listed in BLUF information than in information from Google. Where this is the case, it may mean that a place operates as a leather or dresscode bar only during the hours we have noted.
