Opening in 1979, Leeds’ iconic venue that rivaled the likes of Manchester’s Hacienda for outrageous parties and club nights remains a northern treasure in the world of live music. The Warehouse has seen genre-defining acts such as Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Oasis, The Stone Roses and LFO, and still continues to attract the biggest names to this day.
In 2010, the club underwent significant refurbishments, prioritising technology and equipment to ensure gig-goers, clubbers and all music-lovers would thoroughly enjoy The Warehouse experience. With new light and sound systems and special effects, the club was restored back to its prime. It also received a makeover in regards to layout and spacing, now featuring chillout areas, exposed brick walls and stylish decor. It comprises three versatile spaces; The Warehouse, The Loft and The Garage.
While widely associated with house and electro music, The Warehouse offers club nights and live performances across different musical genres. Anything from disco to hip-hop can be heard thrashing through the three-tiered building, and everyone from students to hard-core music fans can be seen there.
