the Orange tree
The Basement, Wellington St, is Leicester's alternative late bar & club. Located in the basement of an old Victorian hosiery factory, the industrial brick and cast iron structure has been exposed and restored to its former glory. Music wise expect an eclectic mix of live DJs, mixing up classic and fresh tunes on the indie side; from soul, funk & motown to electro, hip hop, reggae & rock. Cocktails are a real specialty and the club is also available for private hire.
The baby of the group, the Orange tree Derby opened in September 2016. With a similar vibe to The Kelso, our focus is on great drinks - cocktails, gin and craft beers and we have space for private parties too. At home on George Street, the building dates back to 1911 and was originally offices for the local gas works. We've worked hard to bring back some of that post-Victorian character.
