The Leeds’ nightlife scene is set for an amazing new attraction thanks to a £2m investment in one of the city’s most storied entertainment venues. The site once occupied by Tiger Tiger in The Light on Albion Street, is currently undergoing a major refurbishment, and is tipped to become one of the most exciting spaces in Yorkshire, with two distinctive new venues opening in early 2024.

Carousel will be located on the ground floor, shining boldly out onto Albion Street. A quality bar which will bring a uniquely chilled experience to the area during the day, combining quality food and drinks with a fun games arcade experience. In the early evening, live music and DJ sets take the tempo up, making it a great after-work choice; and later delivering the best party in town. Whatever time of day or night, there’s something for everyone.

The site will also host Home Nightclub, a brand-new multi-room club offer, aiming to become Leeds’ new favourite late night party destination with great DJs, a focus on the highest levels of production and VIP experiences for those special occasions. The Home brand launched in Lincoln in 2011, making it one of the longest-running nightclubs in the UK, and over the years has hosted some of the city’s most memorable nights out, including headline sets from the likes of James Hype, Tom Zanetti, Wes Nelson, Basshunter, Nathan Dawe and Scott Mills to name but a few. Alongside this, the club is known for a diverse range of events, including themed student parties, live music festivals, rave bingo, corporate events & more.

It is expected that the new venues will create 100 jobs in the process, with work having already begun to completely transform this part of The Light.

Speaking ahead of the launch, managing director John O'Donoghue said: We’re thrilled to be opening our newest venture in Leeds, it’s a great city and was my home for many years. The Light is such an iconic building and the perfect location for the combination of offers we are creating there. This will be the first time in over 20 years something completely new and original has been brought to this great space in The Light and we are looking forward to feedback from both former and new customers. Leeds is vibrant and independent; and already has some outstanding leisure and hospitality businesses in the city centre; giving both locals and visitor a warm welcome and a great experience. We are excited to have the opportunity to complement all that hard work and quality with our own brand of fun and entertainment in such a flagship development. We can’t wait to get the doors open and invite guests in.
